After suffering a foot injury at the Dallas stop of his This Is America Tour, Childish Gambino has been forced to pull out of his headlining set slated for this weekend at the 2018 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans. On Wednesday (Oct. 24), the festival announced that Travis Scott would be replacing Gambino on stage Saturday (Oct. 27).

"Travis Scott is bringing ASTROWORLD to New Orleans & headlining #VoodooFest on Saturday, 10/27. Under doctor's orders Childish Gambino has been advised to continue recovery on his recent tour injury and will be forced to cancel his upcoming performance at the fest this weekend," Voodoo Experience tweeted.

Other artists scheduled on the loaded bill in the Big Easy include Tinashe, Ty Dolla $ign, 21 Savage, Janelle Monae, Smino, and many more.

As far as Gambino's plans to get back on the road, Glover will reportedly resume his This Is America Tour in December, kicking off the delayed trek in Nashville, Tenn. at the Bridgestone Arena on Dec. 2, barring any additional setbacks related to his injured foot.
