Drake’s “It’s All a Blur” Tour With 21 Savage Faces Further Delays
Drake‘s highly anticipated “It’s All a Blur” tour with 21 Savage has encountered another setback, and it appears to be related to health issues. The first shows of the tour, which were originally scheduled to begin on June 29 in Memphis, have been quietly delayed. The Memphis show has been rescheduled for August 6, while the Columbus, Ohio show, initially planned for July 1, will now take place on October 9. Consequently, the tour will now commence almost a week later than originally planned, with the first performance taking place on July 5 in Chicago.
The reason behind these unexpected changes has not been explicitly disclosed. Drake’s representatives at OVO Sound have stated to Vulture that the delay is due to DJ Prince, the official DJ for singer H.E.R. and also the DJ for the “It’s All a Blur” tour, facing health complications related to cancer. However, no further details have been provided at this time. Vulture has reached out to representatives for Drake, 21 Savage, and promoter Live Nation for additional comments.
This is not the first instance of Drake experiencing tour delays. In 2018, he postponed two weeks of shows for his tour with Migos. At that time, a representative for Drake explained that the delay was necessary to deliver a tour experience that met the high standards expected by fans. It remains unclear whether a similar situation prompted the current tour delay or if other factors are at play. It should be noted that this tour holds significant importance for Drake, as it marks his first major tour since the aforementioned 2018 outing with Migos.
While fans eagerly await further updates regarding the tour schedule, it is evident that Drake’s team is prioritizing the well-being of DJ Prince amidst his health complications. The delay serves as a reminder that artists’ personal circumstances can impact tour plans, and the need for flexibility and understanding is essential in such situations.
