AceShowbiz - Drake fans won't be able to get too close and personal with him on his upcoming "Summer Sixteen" tour. According to a new report, the Canadian rapper has decided to cancel meet and greets at his upcoming shows due to "scheduling issues."
Fans who already shelled out lots of money and looked forward to taking pictures with Drake were of course disappointed after learning of the cancellation. Some of them took to Twitter to vent their frustration.
"When you drop over 1k on a @Drake meet and greet and he cancels it........ HAHAHAHA biggest L of my life. Hope I get a refund," one fan wrote. "@Drake purchased meet and greet for daughters bday present and now it's canceled!!! Atl meet and greet canceled due to scheduling issues? Come on meet the fans bro!!" another said.

Can you give me a legit reason as to why you're breaking my heart and cancelled my meet and greet? @Drake— Erika Danielle (@ErikaDubb) June 21, 2016
Drizzy charged $1,000 for the "6 God Meet & Greet" package which was supposed to include a ticket located in the first five rows, a professionally taken individual photo with the "One Dance" hitmaker, one 6 God candle, one 6 God incense holder, one 6 God custom disposable camera, one 6 God frame, one 6 God foam hand, set of Summer Sixteen pins, set of Summer Sixteen patches, Summer Sixteen car freshener, Summer Sixteen "floaty pen" and a Summer Sixteen bag.
He also sold less-than-$300 package that included all the Summer Sixteen merch plus a ticket within the first 10-15 rows.
Drake will kick off the "Summer Sixteen" tour, which he'll co-headline with his "What a Time to Be Alive" collaborator Future, on July 20 in Austin, Texas. Future's own meet and greets are apparently still planned to happen.
