Drake has bumped the starting date of his tour, which has caused the axe to fall on at least three gigs and the rescheduling of a dozen other dates in Canada and the U.S.
According to an article posted Sept. 20 at Billboard.com, the superstar Canuck rapper’s Would You Like a Tour, which had been originally slated to kick on Sept. 25 in Portland Ore., has now been rescheduled to kick off Oct 18 in Pittsburgh, P.a.
In a press release, Drizzy's reps say the reschedule changes are "due to an intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements that will be part of the show."
As a result of shuffle, the following dates have been cancelled: Oct. 2 Saskatoon SK - Credit Union Centre, Oct. 3 Winnipeg MB - MTS Centre and Oct. 13 Cleveland Ohio - Quicken Loans Arena.
Refunds are available at point of purchase.
