Lil Durk has vowed to take a period of time away from the stage after an incident at Lollapalooza 2022 in Chicago this weekend left him injured. Durk was performing at the festival when, as fan shot footage shows, a stage pyrotechnic appeared to go off in his face. The Chicago rapper finished his set at the festival but later posted a picture from a medical facility showing him with a heavily bandaged eye and face.
