Q Tip confirms the news and released a statement.
A Tribe Called Quest’s European dates this summer are cancelled. Roskilde Festival issued a statement saying the group were forced to call off the shows under doctor’s orders, after Q-Tip sustained a shoulder injury that will require surgery. “We had obviously really looked forward to presenting A Tribe Called Quest this summer, but we fully understand the doctor’s strict orders that Q-Tip cannot perform after his surgery,” the Danish fest’s reps wrote.
Have a bit of unfortunate news to share … I’ve injured my shoulder and now need to have surgery which means Tribe won’t be able to perform for our faithful fans in the UK, France, Denmark (We Love Green Festival June 10th in Paris; Parklife Festival June 11th in the UK; and Roskilde Festival July 1st in Denmark). I’m hoping for a speedy recovery and looking forward to getting back to these countries as quickly as possible to perform for all of you. Much Love – Tip
