Tyler, The Creator Has No Plans to Tour In 2017

"I might do like a week and a half of random cities but I’m actually not going to go on tour this year."

Tyler, The Creator fans jumped for joy earlier this week when the lineup was announced for the rapper's sixth annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, but if you aren't able to attend the two-day event in Los Angeles this October, you might not be able to see the Odd Future founder in concert until 2018.

During an appearance earlier this week on the Know Wave podcast, Tyler was asked about his upcoming tour plans for his critically-acclaimed new album, Flower Boy, to which he replied: “I’m not going on tour this year. I might do like a week and a half of random cities but I’m actually not going to go on tour this year. My next show is the carnival and that low-key might be like it’s a 70% chance that’s it this year.”

Tyler's comments about touring come at the 45:50 marker.

While it's certainly possible Tyler has plans to fully tour his new album at the top of 2018, and by delaying the start of a full-length domestic tour he has undeniably increased demand for tickets to his star-studded fall festival, given the impact that Tyler's latest full-length has had on his fanbase, this news will no doubt be upsetting for fans who aren't based in Southern California or who don't have the necessary funds to travel across the country to attend a festival.

On the bright side, though, a 2018 tour will give Tyler loyalists more time to sit with his excellent body of work and ruminate on the project's many layers of introspection before seeing the material performed live.
