A pair of North American summer music festivals have new headliners. Tyler, the Creator has canceled his shows at Lollapalooza in Chicago and Outside Lands in San Francisco, replaced by Megan Thee Stallion and Sabrina Carpenter, respectively.

Separately, singer and actress Carpenter announced her Short n’ Sweet Tour, which will hit more than two dozen North American cities in the fall.

“I hate saying this but i have to cancel lollapalooza and outside lands,” Tyler, the Creator wrote on X/Twitter. “I made a commitment that I can no longer keep, and that bums me out knowing how excited folks were. That is not sexy at all. Please please forgive me or call me names when you see me in person. Love.”

Tyler, The Creator had headlined both festivals in 2021 and was set to co-headline the first night of Lollapalooza on Thursday, August 1, at Grant Park and second night of Outside Lands on Saturday, August 10, in Golden Gate Park. Grammy-winning rapper Megan Thee Stallion is stepping into the Lollapalooza spotlight two weeks after her Hot Girl Summer Tour is set to wrap with a headline gig at the Broccoli City Festival in Washington, D.C.

Earlier this month, Megan Thee Stallion revealed that her third album will be called Megan and it will be released on 28 June.

The 29-year-old rapper has been teasing the new record’s release with a series of snake-themed singles – Cobra, Boa and Hiss – and she made the announcement about the album’s name and release date during her show at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday night, by giving fans a QR code they can use to pre-order the record.

It comes after Megan explained the snake-theme to her new work, telling L’Officiel: “We don’t just stop at the snake. This is just what everybody sees right now.

“Renewal, rebirth: that is the whole concept of this [album]. We started with the snake because, first of all, I love snakes, but I feel like snakes are so misunderstood, especially in western culture.”
