Childish Gambino is postponing his tour, which includes his stop next month in Austin for the ACL Music Festival, to recover after he injured his foot.

Childish Gambino, whose real name is Donald Glover, injured his foot during a concert Sunday in Dallas. 

The Grammy-winner was scheduled to headline both Sundays for ACL, Oct. 7 and 14, but postponed his “This Is America Tour” until Dec. 2. 

The tour promoter says Glover will still perform Oct. 27 at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans.

According to Austin360.com, rapper Travis Scott will now headline both Sundays alongside Arctic Monkeys.

The electronic music duo Justice will headline both Saturday shows alongside Metallica.

Festival organizers said fans who bought tickets to see Scott on Saturday of weekend two can exchange those tickets for no charge to a weekend two ticket.
