The “Hotline Bling” singer had already announced he would need to postpone the last three dates of the tour due to the injury, including his stops in Toronto, Philadelphia and Newark. Ticket holders are set to receive refunds. “We are over 50 shows in and I have done everything to power through my recent ankle injury and leave it all out there on the stage every night,” Drake posted to his blog on Oct. 8.
“I hate to be told I can’t do something, but under doctor’s orders to allow me time to recuperate, I am being forced to postpone the intense three shows in a row in cities which have only ever shown me unconditional support,” he wrote. We totally understand Drake. Though, we have to admit, we’re pretty bummed right now. Well, at least he’ll have some free time to spend with Rihanna now!
