‘I got so ill so fast’: What forced Drake to reschedule two concerts in Miami?


On Friday, Drake sent out a press release through his concert promoter Live Nation that upset his fans: The rapper would have to cancel two shows over the weekend in Miami due to “production issues.”

People, even non-ticketholders, were also left scratching their heads. Why cancel two concerts at the last minute?

Was it due to his recent highly public beef with Kanye West? The two entertainers got into it last week because West thought that Drake was throwing shade at his wife, Kim Kardashian, with the song, “In My Feelings,” which mention’s “Keke,” the reality star’s nickname.


The fact of the matter (we think) is that Drizzy was ill, and maybe still is.

The Canadian, born Aubrey Graham, told his followers Sunday that his two shows at AmericanAirlines Arena had to be rescheduled because he was very sick with a malady that came upon him quickly. Was it the flu, severe allergy or food poisoning? No answer yet. But sick is sick.

RadarOnline reports that the 31-year-old collapsed during dress rehearsal at AAA.

“I just wanted to say how sorry I am about these two Miami shows. I got so ill so fast and I had never experienced anything like that in my life,” read his statement, which added that he was tended to by medical professionals “around the clock.” It is unclear if the father of one was hospitalized and where.

This isn’t the first time Drake has had major issues with a performance. Page Six reports that earlier this month, he showed up at 3 a.m. at a late night show at DAER Nightclub in Atlantic City. He was supposed to take the stage at 2 a.m., according to the NYC media outlet. “He was late and the partiers were waiting,” the spy told Page Six. “He apologized to the crowd … and jumped right into his performance.”

But have no fear: His “Aubrey and the Three Migos” tour will be back. The Friday show is now rescheduled to Nov. 13, Saturday’s to Nov. 14.

All tickets will be honored, according to Live Nation.
