Drake has definitely set the mood for the summer with songs like “Controlla,” “One Dance,” “Summer 16,” and “For Free.” If you purchased the VIP packages looking to catch some vibes with the man himself on his upcoming Summer Sixteen Tour, it’s now looking like you’ll have to wait for the next tour. The Canadian star has reportedly canceled all meet and greets for his Summer ’16 tour due to scheduling conflicts.
It’s unclear whether Drake has canceled all of the tour’s meet and greets, but fans will be issued a refund for the ones canceled. The Summer Sixteen Tour is set to begin in Austin, Texas on July 20. Meet and greets are purchased as VIP packages which cost up to $1,000 and include a guaranteed seat in the first five rows, plenty of tour merchandise, and meet and greets with Drake and Future, who’s set to tour with his What A Time To Be Alive co-star.
Fans with canceled meet and greets will be notified and refunded. It’s unclear whether or not the fans will be able to keep their seats in the first few rows, or if they will have to repurchase tickets and buy their own tour merchandise.
The cancellation follows shortly after Justin Bieber canceled his meet and greet packages, claiming they were draining and did not make him “happy,” plus the tragic death of The Voice star Christina Grimmie, who was fatally shot during her meet and greet in Miami earlier this month.
