Drake’s fans left Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center early Saturday night after the hip hop star’s concert was postponed at the last minute.
Drake’s concert was scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. It wasn’t until around 8:30 p.m. however that the concertgoers were told the performance was canceled. According to Rebecca Goodman, a spokeswoman for the Wells Fargo Center, the concert was postponed due to an “unexpected technical issue.”
Rebecca Goodman says Drake’s Philadelphia concert will now take place on Wednesday, December 18.
“Drake, the Wells Fargo Center, Live Nation, and the entire team behind tonight’s show want to ensure fans will experience an unforgettable live music event and have decided to move the concert to a new date,” she wrote in a released statement.
“All tickets and original parking receipts from tonight’s show will be honored at the Wednesday, December 18 date.”
Saturday’s event was supposed to be the second concert of Drake’s Would You Like a Tour?. The tour kicked off Friday night at Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center.
Drake’s third studio album Nothing Was the Same was released on September 24. The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart and so far has sold over 880,000 copies.
