Before Drake’s Would You Like A Tour? even kicked off in Pittsburgh, the rapper had already fired supporting act Future, only to make up with him. The show’s second stop in Philadelphia last night came with more drama, this time in the form of a sudden cancellation over “an unexpected technical issue.”
According to Rolling Stone, the plug wasn’t pulled until an hour after the show was scheduled to start. Philly.com reports that “fans had already entered the Wells Fargo Center when they were notified that Drake would not be performing that night.” Also left out of the loop was opener Miguel, who tweeted his surprise at 8:35 p.m. and then went on to play a “make-up set” with his band at another location in the city.
A statement from the venue said tickets for Saturday’s performance will be honored on Wednesday, December 18 — the show’s new date. Drake is set to play Montreal tomorrow. Third time’s a charm.
