Drake Will Miss Wireless Festival Performance Due To Illness


The Wireless Festival, a three-day concert festival in Birmingham, UK, will be short one headliner as Drake has cancelled due to an illness. The event organizers released a statement stating that Drizzy had become sick over the past few days and while he is feeling better, he has not been cleared by doctors to fly or perform. Drake sent the following message to his fans:

To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won’t be able to perform as planned at Wireless and Roskilde this weekend. I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me. I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can’t wait to come back to make more incredible memories together.

Concert goers should not fret as Kanye West has agreed to take Drake’s place and will now be giving a full headlining set all three days of the festival. Drake is scheduled to host ESPN’s ESPY Awards and, as of now, has not cancelled.
