Tyler, The Creator has revealed that he will no longer appear at this weekend’s Reading And Leeds festivals and has axed upcoming UK and Ireland headline dates too.
The Odd Future rapper was scheduled to play gigs in Belfast and Dublin prior to the festival sets, but has now confirmed that all dates have been cancelled.
In a message posted to Twitter, Tyler stated that the cancellations were due to “circumstances” but didn’t explained further. He added: “I’m sorry. I love you, save the horses”.

Earlier in August, Tyler, The Creator cancelled his Australian tour following protests from a feminist group surrounding his explicit lyrics.

Tyler recently pitched the idea of a collaboration to former One Direction singer Zayn Malik.
Taking to Twitter, Tyler wrote: “Hi @zaynmalik, I have beautiful instrumentals and you have a voice lets figure this out my guy. Epic album cuts tho no radio singles”.
Malik later responded to the rapper’s offer and appeared keen to link up. “@fucktyler sounds sick BRO let do some shit!,” he replied.
Malik parted ways with the boyband in March, stating that he wishes to be “a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight”.
However, Malik recently confirmed that he’s inked a solo deal with RCA Records, the same imprint as Foo Fighters, A$AP Rocky and Miley Cyrus, saying he wishes to make “real music”.
