Kid Cudi is canceling his upcoming Insano World Tour {which included stops in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal) due to an injury suffered while performing at Coachella over the weekend.

Cudi relayed the news to his fans in a heartfelt note on Wednesday (April 24), in which he revealed that he actually broke his calcaneus — the bone that forms at the heel — in the stage fall.


“Guys, so, I have a broken calcaneus. I’m headed to surgery now and there’s gonna be a long recovery time. We have to cancel the tour so I can focus on getting back out there in top shape to rage with you all,” Cudi wrote to X and Instagram. “There’s just no way I can bounce back in time to give 100%. The injury is much more serious than I thought. Anyone who bought tickets will get a full refund, you’ll get an email soon.”

The 43-date trek with Pusha T, Earthgang, Jaden Smith, Chelsea Pastel and Siena Bella as supporting guests was slated to launch on June 28 with a show at the Moody Center in Austin, Texas.

However, Cudi is planning on getting back on stage when healthy, and he’ll be making it up to fans with another tour coming down the road.

“We will be back with new tour dates as soon as possible, and I can’t wait to get back out there with you guys and turn up how we do,” he continued. “I’m so sorry fam and I love you all so much, thanks for the endless love and support. I’m really disappointed as I’m sure you guys are too, but I will be back. That’s a promise I’m ok, just a lil soreness, but I’m in good spirits.”

Mr. Solo Dolo returned to Coachella for the first time since 2019 on Sunday (April 21) as a special guest added for Weekend Two, but his stay was short-lived when he broke his foot while hopping down from the stage to get close to fans during a performance of “Memories.”

Cudi was carried off and received medical attention.

“Hey guys, so I broke my foot today at the show [forehead smack emoji]. just leavin the hospital,” he wrote after sustaining the injury. “Never broken a bone before so this is all a bit crazy. I wanna thank u all for ur concerns and well wishes!! I love yall man. I heard yall still ragin when I was offstage. Made me smile big.”
