After getting hurt during his weekend performance at 2022 Lollapalooza, Lil Durk is taking some time to heal.
After receiving two fast bursts from onstage pyrotechnics during the performance of his Pooh Shiesty duet Back in Blood, the rapper provided an update on his condition. Lil Durk’s Instagram post features a picture of him sitting in a hospital room with a big bandage over one of his eyes.
I’m going to take a vacation and concentrate on my health because of what happened on stage at Lollapalooza in Chicago, the rapper stated.
Lil Durk is seen crossing the stage in an fan-captured video of the incident before getting injured in the face by the bomb. The rapper then moves backward and covers his face with his white T-shirt as the music abruptly stops.
Wow, are you okay, brother? The rapper faltered and wiped his tears as his DJ inquired. That one was somewhat close. It didn’t appear to be a straight upward shot. That appeared to have a different trajectory.

Despite the incident, the rapper concluded his set and said on Instagram: “I finished my performance yesterday for my fans.” Thank to everybody.
When Rolling Stones contacted Lil Durk for comment, no one responded right away.
For the South Side native Lil Durk, his Lollapalooza performance felt somewhat like a homecoming performance. Aside from the rapper’s own injury, the performance was interrupted several times to assure the safety and breathing space of the raucous crowd.
