The beginning of the “Aubrey And The Three Amigos” tour featuring Drake and Migos has been rescheduled, with the tour kicking off in Kansas City Aug. 10 rather than tomorrow night in Salt Lake City.
A Drake representative blamed production issues in a media release: “In order to deliver the high standard tour experience our fans expect and deserve, we have made the necessary decision to slightly adjust the beginning of the Aubrey & the Three Migos tour schedule.”
Migos member Offset was arrested just days ago on felony gun possession charges.
The new tour schedule shows dates postponed in Kansas City, St. Paul, Toronto, and Salt Lake City, with Denver to be determined and Chicago’s Aug. 20 show canceled.
Tickets for originally scheduled shows will be honored at the new dates, with refunds being offered as well.
Drake just released the record-breaking Scorpion and has been dominating the charts. His 2016-2017 world tour was the largest hip-hop tour ever according to WME agent Brent Smith, who said the 2016-2017 run grossed more than $140 million, with multiple-night sellouts at Madison Square Garden ($7.1 million, four nights) and Staples Center ($4.9 million, three nights) according to Pollstar data.
Pollstar has reached out to booking agency WME for comment, which provided the following release:
In order to deliver the high standard tour experience our fans expect and deserve, we have made the necessary decision to slightly adjust the beginning of the Aubrey & the Three Migos tour schedule.
The tour will now kick off in Kansas City on August 10th, with a limited number of additional shows being rescheduled. Tickets purchased for the original show dates will be honored for the rescheduled dates.
