Austin City Limits Festival announced Wednesday that headliner “This Is America” rapper Childish Gambino has been forced to postpone his tour due to a foot injury. That includes canceling his performance at this year's music festival.

Electronic duo Justice will headline both Saturdays — Oct. 6 and 13 — alongside SA-favorites Metallica, and Travis Scott will headline both Sundays — Oct. 7 and 14 — alongside Arctic Monkeys, ACL said.

According to Billboard.com, Childish Gambino, born Donald Glover, struggled with an injured foot during his show in Dallas.

The updated performance schedules can be found at aclfestival.com.

During the first “This Is America” date in Atlanta, Glover announced that the tour would be his last as Childish Gambino, soooo does that mean, he’ll never come back to Texas?
