As we all know Drake cancelled his tour date in Philly On Saturday after people had been waiting in their seats for over an hour. Many people at the concert say workers were trying to fix a fixture over the floor seats and guards would not allow people to sit in their floor seats, but those higher up were allowed to sit. Around 8:30p an announcement was made telling people the concert is cancelled. Check what he said below,
A Wells Fargo Center spokesperson said in a statement, “Due to the elaborate nature of tonight’s show and an unexpected technical issue, Drake’s ‘Would You Like A Tour’ concert at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia has been postponed until Wednesday, December 18.”
Several reports say that a rising catwalk is to blame for the cancelled date. During his opening night in Pittsburgh, on Friday night (October 18th), Drake used the catwalk during his performance of “From Time” with Jhene Aiko. During the opening night, the rapper also shared the stage with Future for a performance of “Honest” and bought out Wiz Khalifa, who performed “Black and Yellow” for his hometown. The tour will resume tonight (October 21st) at Montreal’s Bell Centre.
People were so upset they started fighting inside the venue. See the below video. A listener called saying cops were outside the venue and people were fighting. Shouts to DDotOmen.
That’s what the official statements say. Rumor has it that Drake and Future got into a physical altercation hours before. A listener called us and said a model friend of his knows Drake well and that this model (who he did not name) said there were some issues backstage between Drake and Future and the listener also said Miguel was involved. He said that was resolved, but the REAL reason Drake didn’t hit the stage was because his catwalk was not built properly.
Now other internet sources said that Drake is still upset about Future’s alleged comments about him in Billboard. Mediatakeout says, “One of Drake’s people said something to one of Future’s people . . . and it POPPED. It was a lot of pushing, not many punches – but Drake was definitely in the middle getting it in.”
In other news, Drake’s hit “Hold On, We’re Going Home” has set a record. The song bumped up from number two to number one on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart, breaking a tie with Usher for the most number one’s on the chart with 13. Drake has become the only lead artist to top the chart with two different songs this year. His hit “Started From The Bottom” hit number one for a week in April.
