Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino performed in Australia this week, and was booed off the stage, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.

While on-stage at the Cambridge Hotel in Newcastle, Gambino reportedly sat on-stage for 40 minutes before performing. When he finally started his set, the crowd began chanting obscenities, prompting the rapper to leave the stage.

The venue's posted an apology on its Facebook page on Thursday (Oct. 1) for the show, addressing the shoe.

"To everyone who came to see Childish Gambino show last night we are as disappointed as all of you," the statement reads. "We had the opportunity to present Childish Gambino to Newcastle in an intimate gig and we jumped at the chance as we aim to bring the best possible acts to Newcastle for music lovers. As seen last night, unfortunately we have no control over the acts performance once on stage. For those that aren’t aware, Canberra and ourselves were 2 additional Childish Gambino shows that were promoted in the exact same way as part of his current tour and we were extremely excited to be presented with this opportunity. Subsequently he didn’t deliver on what was billed and expected by everyone, including us. The Cambridge strives to deliver Newcastle the highest quality live music possible and we will continue to do so. Like you, we were equally excited to present the act and its only matched by the disappointment in the performance by the act."
