Drake announced that he had pushed back his upcoming Would You Like a Tour?. The rapper said in a press release that the tour, which was originally scheduled to kick off on September 25 in Portland, has been delayed "due to an intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements that will be part of the show."
The tour, which will feature R&B singer Miguel and rapper Future, is now set to open at Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center on October 18. The Toronto MC's shows in Saskatoon, Winnipeg and Cleveland have been canceled due to the delay. Refunds are available at point of purchase.
Drake is a few days ahead of releasing his new album, "Nothing Was the Same". Slated to arrive on September 24, the follow-up to 2011's "Take Care" will feature guest vocals from 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Jay-Z, Jhene Aiko, Majid Jordan and Sampha.
"Nothing Was the Same" has spawned two singles, "Started from the Bottom" and "Hold On, We're Going Home". Both singles entered Billboard 100's top 10.
Drake has visited Ellen Degeneres' "The Ellen Degeneres Show" to promote the album. He will then perform at iHeartRadio in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 21 and stop by Chelsea Handler's "Chelsea Lately" on Monday, September 22.
