Drake Cancels UK Tour
Because his mum is ill…
Friday, July 2, 2010 - 12:08
The star was due over for his first headline shows in the country this month but has now been forced to pull the dates because his mother is ill.
In a statement Drake said: “Despite my best hopes, it is apparent that my mother will need surgery earlier than anticipated.
“In light of this news, I have made the difficult decision to cancel my European tour in order to support her during her recovery, just as she supported me through the years. I cannot thank my European fans enough and look forward to performing abroad soon. I ask everyone to please respect my family's privacy during this time.”
The star released his debut album Thank Me Later last month. He was scheduled to perform at T In The Park, Oxegen and solo shows in London.
