BREAKING NEWS: Future Has Pulled Out Of His Sydney Shows

Future has pulled out of his remaining Australian shows due to the death of a close friend, Music Feeds reports.

The Mask Off rapper was scheduled to play at Listen Out's Sydney and Brisbane shows this weekend but has instead flown home.

"In extremely sad news, a very close friend of Future's has passed away and as a result he is rushing back to the US for the funeral," Listen Out promoters Fuzzy said in a statement.

"This means he won't be able to play the remaining dates of his Aust/ NZ tour.

"At this late stage it won't be possible to get a similar act to Australia to replace Future on his Listen Out dates, though we are working on adding another act to the bill."

Future himself addressed his friend's death earlier this week in an emotional Facebook post.

"I always gave racism a cold shoulder because my real brother is a white guy by the name of Seth Firkins," he wrote. "I got a call saying u died in your sleep?

"I love u beyond this post. I will cherish u forever big bro, I just wish u would've text me & told me u was going to sleep and I wasn't going to be able to wake u up this time."
