[gallery columns="3"]Following today’s news regarding Drake‘s next major global tour, the OVO rapper has cancelled several shows booked for his current Summer Sixteen trek. As Pitchfork notes, Drake has postponed every single remaining concert included in the Summer Sixteen tour. The reason: the same ankle injury that prompted last week’s cancellations. You can check out the official cancellation statement from Drake and his camp below.

Drake suffered a severe ankle injury during the tour which he did his best to power through. By doing this, he made his injury worse. Under doctors orders and to ensure Drake only ever gives fans the performances they deserve, he will be postponing the remaining 3 dates of his Summer Sixteen tour to allow him time to recuperate his ankle injury. Drake’s fans mean the world to him. Seeing their faces and performing his music for them is what he loves to do the most and he can’t wait to get back on stage.
