SAN DIEGO (FOX 5/KUSI) — Kid Cudi has canceled all shows for his planned “Insano World Tour” this summer after breaking his foot during Coachella last weekend.

In an Instagram post Wednesday, the Grammy Award-winning artist said he sustained a fracture to his calcaneus, or heel bone, in a jump from the Sahara stage during his set at the festival on Sunday. He added that the injury will require surgery.

“We have to cancel the tour so I can focus on getting better to be out there in top shape to rage with you all,” he wrote in the post. “There’s just no way I can bounce back in time to give 100%.”

The Grammy Award-winning rapper was initially scheduled to perform at Pechanga Arena on Friday, Aug. 16 as part of the tour. Those who bought tickets to this show — or the other 42 stops planned for the tour — will get a full refund, Cudi said.

A new slate of shows for the “Insano World Tour” will be announced once he has recovered from the injury, he added.

“I can’t wait to get back out there with you guys and turn up how we do,” Cudi continued. “I’m really disappointed as [I’m] sure you guys are too, but I will be back. That’s a promise.”

Cudi, who was a special treat for festivalgoers at the second weekend of Coachella, sustained his injury late in his 40-minute set in front of a packed crowd at the Sahara Stage. According to those who were there, he only had one song left in his set, “Pursuit of Happiness.”

Videos posted to social media show the 40-year-old rapper attempting to jump down from the stage during his hit song “Memories.” His foot appears to get caught in a wire lining the stage, causing him to take an awkward tumble back onto his left foot.

Cudi was then escorted off by two men, as he was not able to put any weight on his leg. Late Sunday, he confirmed in a post on X, formerly Twitter, that he did in fact break his foot in the fall.
