According to InFlexWeTrust's Marisa Mendez, the postponement is made because the production team arrives late and is unable to set up the stage properly, making it unsafe.
After being pushed back for almost a month, Drake's "Would You Like a Tour?" tour finally opened in Pittsburgh on Friday, October 18. Unfortunately, the next show at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, October 19 didn't happen as planned since it had been canceled. The announcement was made less than an hour before the show was supposed to start.
Drake was reportedly forced to delay the Philadelphia concert for safety reasons. According to InFlexWeTrust's Marisa Mendez, the decision was made because the production team arrived late and was unable to set up the stage at the venue properly, making it unsafe.
The show has been rescheduled for December 18. "Due to the elaborate nature of tonight's show and an unexpected technical issue, Drake's 'Would You Like A Tour' concert at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia has been postponed until Wednesday, December 18," a spokesperson for Wells Fargo Center said.
Drake's "Would You Like a Tour?" tour has been filled with drama since the beginning. Originally slated to kick off back in September, the tour was delayed until October due to "an intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements."
Earlier this month, rapper Future was reportedly removed from the tour after making some negative comments on Drake's "Nothing Was the Same" album during a recent interview with Billboard. Both rappers eventually buried the hatchet and the tour was set to "continue as planned."
