Childish Gambino cut his show short in Dallas last night (September 23) after apparently sustaining an injury, with subsequent reports claiming that he broke his foot while on stage.
Gambino – the music moniker of Atlanta creator and star Donald Glover – is currently touring in North America on the ‘This Is America’ tour, which is due to continue across the continent until October 12.
His show at Dallas’ American Airlines Center last night ended earlier than expected, however, after Glover reportedly injured his foot during the performance. TMZ has reported that the actor and musician aggravated an existing injury during the gig, with audience members claiming that Glover appeared to hurt himself while dancing or “attempting to do the splits” in Dallas.
The publication have also claimed that Glover was actually spotted on Friday (September 21) at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas arriving at the venue in ‘a wheelchair and a leg brace’. A source told them that he then got out of the wheelchair and removed the brace before performing.

#ChildishGambino went so hard in Dallas, he hurt his foot and ended the show without an encore. I’m not even mad. The show was fantastic! You guys aren’t ready for his last album. Heal up, @donaldglover! Thanks for the experience! pic.twitter.com/DyHGc7T8Cn

Gambino put on what was thisclose to being a good show but…..
He left after This Is America.
He didn’t say goodnight.
Didn’t thank Dallas.
Certainly no “3 song encore,” as is rumored to be typical on this, his LAST tour as Childish Gambino.
Folks are PISSED. ?
