Tyler, the Creator, who was set to headline Chicago’s Lollapalooza and San Francisco’s Outside Lands in August, announced he is dropping out of both festivals. Megan Thee Stallion will replace Tyler at Lollapalooza, while Sabrina Carpenter (who also announced a headlining arena tour in North America today) will take his place at Outside Lands.

The news came in a statement on social media, with the rapper saying, “I hate saying this but I have to cancel Lollapalooza and Outside Lands.”

The rapper did not provide a reason for dropping out of the festivals, instead writing: “I made a commitment that I can no longer keep, and that bums me out knowing how excited folks were. That is not sexy at all. Please please forgive me or call me names when you see me in person. Love.”

Tyler, the Creator recently headlined both weekends of Coachella, and last set out on tour in 2022 with several dates in Australia including Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne (two shows grossing $2.4 million) and Quodos Bank Arena in Sydney (two shows grossing $2.4 million). He also appeared at Kendrick Lamar’s Juneteenth concert at Los Angeles’ Kia Forum on June 19, which also included appearances from Dr. Dre, YG, Steve Lacy and more.

Earlier that year, he also did an arena tour in North America with highlights including a sold-out show at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle ($1.4 million gross) and two shows at Madison Square Garden (grossing $2.3 million).

He is booked by Kevin Shivers at WME and managed by 4Strikes.
