Drake Postpones Remaining 2016 Summer Sixteen Tour Dates
Drake has postponed the remainder of his Summer Sixteen Tour Dates as a result of worsening ankle injury. He announced last week that he was putting off a few shows in Toronto, Philadelphia and Newark, but now the remainder of the tour is being pushed to later dates until he can recover.
The five postponed dates include two in Brooklyn at the Barclay's Center tonight, Oct. 11 and tomorrow, Oct. 12, one in Philadelphia on Thursday, Oct. 13 and then on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14 and 15 in Newark at Prudential Center. He has not announced when the shows will be made up yet, but it will likely be contingent on when his ankle is healthy and the schedules of the arenas he is performing in.
"Drake suffered a severe ankle injury during the tour which he did his best to power through. By doing this, he made his injury worse. Under doctors orders and to ensure Drake only ever gives fans the performances they deserve, he will be postponing the remaining 3 dates of his Summer Sixteen tour to allow him time to recuperate his ankle injury," Drake's representative said in a statement via Consequence of Sound. "Drake's fans mean the world to him. Seeing their faces and performing his music for them is what he loves to do the most and he can't wait to get back on stage."
Drake announced a two-month European tour yesterday that will spend nearly a month in the UK and the next hitting arenas all across Europe. Find the full list of postponed dates below.
