Q-Tip @ Brooklyn Hip Hop Fest (more by Brook Bobbins)

"Unfortunately we have recently been told that Q-tip will have to cancel his planned tour of Europe this summer. This means he will not be appearing at The Øya festival in August. This is sad news, first of all for the fans. We know that many of you have been looking forward to seeing Q-tip in the Medieval park. We have not yet recieved much information concerning the cancellation, but we have been told that this is a health related matter as the artist has to go through an operation around the same time that The Øya Festival takes place. As you can understand, this is entirely beyond our control. We hope Q-tip will soon recover, and that he will be able to guest Øya at a later date." [Oya]
Q-Tip was supposed to hit Oya Fest in Norway, Flow Festival in Finland, Way Out West in Sweden, and a bunch of other festivals on a tour that was set to last August 11 - 27. Lots of disappointed Europeans right now. That said, Q-Tip says "The european tour is currently being rescheduled. Even in festival cities."

Meanwhile catch Q-Tip on the 1s and 2s at Brooklyn Bowl Sunday night (8/7), and live (I think) with the Flaming Lips, Neon Indian, and Wavves in Long Island in Sept.

UPDATE: Q-Tip cancelled his Brooklyn Bowl DJ gig too, but will be replaced by Reptar and a DJ set by Talib Kweli

Q-tip is to clean out my ear-wax. Not to listen to his rap and eat hummus.
