Drake and Future

Now DRAKE Cancels On Us!  

Rap star Drake has canceled the rest of his summer 2016 tour, including concert dates scheduled for Oct. 9 at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center and for Oct. 16 in Newark.

A spokesman said Drake's doctors had advised him to end his tour "to allow him time to recuperate his ankle injury." 

The two local dates were near the end of his Summer Sixteen tour with special guests including Future. A third date, in Toronto, also was canceled.

No word yet on rescheduling or ticket refunds. The concert is now listed as "postponed" on the Wells Fargo Center site
