Odd Future - Odd Future Pull Out Of Leeds Festival For Vmas

Rap collective Odd Future have axed a planned performance at an upcoming British festival so frontman Tyler, The Creator can attend the Mtv Video Music Awards.
The Los Angeles group was scheduled to take the stage at both the Reading and Leeds festivals on 27 and 28 August (11), but rapper Tyler, The Creator has since achieved a "lifelong dream" and landed a pair of Vma nominations, earning him an invite to attend the Los Angeles ceremony on 28 August (11).
As a result, Odd Future has chosen to scrap its show at the Leeds Festival - but the band has promised to make it up to disappointed fans in the near future.
A statement reads: "Odd Future would like to formally apologise to both the Leeds Festival organisers and the fans attending for having to cancel their appearance. Tyler recently achieved a lifelong dream of being nominated for two Mtv Vmas - New Artist of the Year and Video of the Year. This is an extremely unique situation for a group who are devoted to their fans.
"We have agreed to give all Leeds Festival ticket holders a pre-sale option for our next show in the north of England. Again we apologise to anyone who was looking forward to seeing them live, and will do whatever it takes to make it up to them. We look forward to having another opportunity to play Leeds Festival."
Odd Future will honour their commitment to the Reading Festival on the eve of the awards show before flying to Los Angeles.
Muse, My Chemical Romance, Pulp and The Strokes will headline the three-day Leeds Festival.
