Kid Cudi Breaks Foot After Attempting to Jump Off Coachella Stage

Kid Cudi’s Coachella set was one of the most anticipated last-minute adds to the second weekend of the the 2024 festival. Sadly, the last couple songs Cudi was supposed to perform went without him.

Cudi was nearing the end of his set on Sunday evening when he injured himself in the middle of singing “Best Memories,” a song he shares with David Guetta. In fan-captured video, Cudi is seen launching himself off stage and landing beside a security guard. He was unable to stand on his own and had to be escorted off the stage.

Cudi addressed the incident on X late Sunday night and confirmed he had broken a bone: “Hey guys, so I broke my foot today at the show. just leavin the hospital. Never broken a bone before so this is all a bit crazy. I wanna thank u all for ur concerns and well wishes!! I love yall man. I heard yall still ragin when I was offstage. Made me smile big.”

Earlier that night, Cudi’s show attracted one of the biggest crowds of the weekend at the Sahara tent where he performed two new songs live for the first time during his foreshortened set, “Moon Man Shit” and “Blue Sky.” He also performed his hits “Up Up & Away,” “Tequila Shots,” and more.

The musician last appeared at Coachella in 2019 when he brought Kanye West as a surprise guest to perform tracks off their collaborative “Kids See Ghosts” album. Cudi is set to embark on a 43-date world tour in support of his new album “Insano,” and will kick off the tour’s North American leg on July 28 in Austin, Texas.
