After cancelling his 2018 Australian tour due to an ongoing injury, Childish Gambino has this morning announced he'll be returning Down Under this July.

The US hip hop star will be hitting up Sydney on July 24, Melbourne on July 17 and Perth on July 14 for stadium shows — and to Byron Bay for an already announced headline spot at Splendour in the Grass.

This will be Childish Gambino's — AKA Donald Glover, AKA writer/director/star of Atlanta, if you haven't already worked that out — first Aussie shows since performing at Falls Festival in 2016.

At the shows, expect to hear 'This Is America' and last year's two-song Summer Pack, as well as hits from his lauded three albums Camp, Because the Internet and Awaken, My Love!. 

While you're waiting for tickets to go on sale, you can watch his new movie, Guava Island, which co-stars Rihanna. It premiered for free on Amazon Prime yesterday, and is now only available for subscribers. If you don't have a subscription, you can still catch a couple of teasers on Childish Gambino's Instagram:
