This summer was set to mark the beginning of A Tribe Called Quest‘s world tour. Now, according to Pitchfork, the group has been forced to cancel a few of its upcoming European dates, citing a press release from Denmark’s Roskilde Festival, that claims Tribe pulled out due to Q-Tip‘s sustaining a shoulder injury that will require surgery. Ice Cube has been tapped as Tribe’s replacement, though a formal statement from the group has yet to be delivered. Here’s hoping Tip gets the treatment he needs to hit the Award Tour in stride.
If you’ve procured stubs to one of Tribe’s stateside performances, fear not, they appear to still be on the schedule, the dates for which are listed below.
