Should we take a rain check? Drake recently announced that he will cancel his Summer Sixteen Tour VIP Meet & Greets, and people are wondering why!
Drake will begin his highly-anticipated Summer Sixteen Tour this summer with Future that kicks of as of next month on July 20th in Austin, TX, but looks like he had some sad news to tell his fans. The tour was announced back in April, and one option, for those who paid for them, was to get VIP tickets that let you meet Drizzy. They called these special tickets the 6 God Meet and Greet Package, but guess there will be no more meeting nor greeting at these shows since he canceled them. Why, Drake, why?
The tickets offered the chance for a close-up photo with the Toronto artist, and treat bag of some swag. According to People magazine, he won’t meet fans anymore because of “scheduling issues.”Should someone call Hotline Bling? I think this is an emergency! Nonetheless, ticket holders will be refunded currency wise, but there will be no coverage for their broken hearts and bursted bubbles to meet the 6 God. The tour is supposed to be a showcase to bring his recent album chart topper, Views, on the road and to the masses. It was released back in April, and features 20 songs, including hit single “One Dance.”
So, all of this is probably bad news for a lot of OG Drizzy fans, but hey, for those of you who wanted to meet Future, you still have the opportunity to. Another package, called the Freebandz Honcho’s Packages allows you to meet Future, take a pic with him and receive some concert goodies; so that stays the same.
Looks like Drake wasn’t the only one to play hard to get though because earlier this year, Justin Bieber did the same thing. Bieber had announced back in March that the meet and greets “drained” him and made him “unhappy.” Bieber’s probably thinking, is it too late now to say sorry?
You can get tickets now for the Summer Sixteen Tour at Ticketmaster.com, and our condolences on the news.
