Brockhampton Set to Perform on ‘The Tonight Show’
Brockhampton have been relatively mum since accusations of sexual misconduct were levied against original member Ameer Vann late last month. The group, however, have broken their presumable silence to announce that they will be making a return to the small screen on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon next week.
Early Wednesday afternoon (June 13), they shared the news on Twitter in perhaps the most elusive way possible. In a brief video clip, shot poolside, we see one of the members swim up to the camera to reveal a message of sorts. "Brockhampton. Live on Fallon. 6/20/18," is etched in black marker on the man's abdomen.
While the group failed to reveal any more details beyond the performance's date, fans can expect Brockhampton's return to the stage to be an epic one. Over the past few weeks, the Internet's favorite boy band has been dealing with the departure of former member Ameer Vann. Since Vann's departure, they canceled their remaining US tour dates “to go home and regroup.” The RCA records signees subsequently postponed the release of their new album PUPPY, which was originally slated to drop this month.
Brockhampton's last live appearance was their emotional Boston Calling set last month, in which they embraced each other in silence during the moments where Ameer Vann would ordinarily participate. The next morning, they announced that Vann was no longer in the group following allegations of sexual misconduct. “We were lied to,” they said in a statement posted to Twitter. "And, we are sorry for not speaking up sooner. We do not tolerate abuse of any kind. This is not a solution to their suffering, but we hope this is a step in the right direction."
