Logistically impossible" – Drake abruptly cancels 'It's All a Blur' tour Memphis Show
Drake's Memphis concert, part of his 'It's All a Blur' Tour, has been abruptly cancelled due to logistical difficulties, leaving fans awaiting automatic refunds.
In a surprise move, rap superstar Drake has given his Memphis fans quite the jolt. The much-anticipated concert, slated for August 6 at Downtown’s FedExForum, is no more, as per Ticketmaster's update – "the organizer has cancelled the event."
'It's All a Blur' in Memphis: A Concert That Wasn't
The reason behind this abrupt cancellation was explained by Drake's representatives as, "Due to the magnitude of the production of the Drake concert, it is logistically impossible to bring the show as designed to the FedExForum on August 6th. Unfortunately, the show is cancelled." The statement, given to FedExForum, leaves fans in the lurch, who were looking forward to the 'It's All a Blur Tour,' featuring 21 Savage.
Fans who had already secured their spots to the sold-out show need not worry about their pockets though. Automatic refunds are underway, and according to Ticketmaster, the funds should return to the original method of payment within a span of 30 days.
From Postponement to Cancellation: Drake's Memphis Misstep
Ironically, this isn't the first time Drake's 'It's All a Blur Tour' had a hiccup in Memphis. Earlier, the tour was set to kick off at the FedExForum in late June, but the event was postponed at the last minute. Despite the postponement, Drake was in Memphis accepting a ceremonial key to Shelby County.
Although the Canadian rapper has other tour dates pencilled in for September and October across the South, a rescheduled Memphis event is yet to be mentioned. But for the Tennessean Drake fans, it's not all bad news. His scheduled performances at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on October 1 and 2, seem to be going ahead as planned.
This sudden cancellation is certainly a blur in Drake's usually smooth tour plans. For more updates, keep an eye on Ticketmaster.com.
