Conway The Machine has been forced to postpone his forthcoming Won’t He Do It Tour amid a severe fracture in his leg that has him down for the count.
The unfortunate news was delivered to fans in an Instagram post on Monday (May 22). Just days away from the scheduled May 26 kickoff in Chicago, the Griselda rapper let fans know that they’d have to wait a bit longer.
“The results are in,” he wrote with a facepalm emoji. “I have a Fractured right tibia, dislocated kneecap, ANNNNND the album of the year tho!”
He continued: “But In all seriousness tho, anyone that knows me knows there’s nothing I love to do more than bein up on that stage! I can’t lie I’m super disappointed that I have to postpone the WHDi tour for a little bit, because I was really looking forward to goin on those stages and rocking this WHDI shit for y’all live. However I am in good spirits and I’m only looking at it as just a minor lil setback for a MAJOR COMEBACK! No stress!!”
“If u already bought tickets they’ll be honored at the later dates for sure! More updates coming this week. I appreciate all the love and concern for my well-being, love y’all.”

The tour is in promotion of his recent album of the same name, which dropped on May 5. The gritty LP features assists from Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher, Sauce Walka, Fabolous, Ransom, Juicy J, Dave East and more.
On the production side, there are beats from Daringer, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Juicy J and Daniel Cruz, among others.
This isn’t the first time Conway The Machine has faced touring issues. Just last year, he canceled all dates on the I’ll Tell You Later Tour just a little over a week before it was set to begin.
Though he broke the news to his fans with an Instagram post, he failed to provide much detail. Instead, he quickly changed the subject.
“Well, the bad news is the tour is canceled,” he wrote in the caption. “The good news is my pack has finally landed and you all will be getting your merch that you ordered any day now.”
Theories were rampant in the comment section — anywhere from ticket sales were too low to bad booking. But the most Conway offered was a shrugging emoji.
