He isn't feeling well...
Drake has been forced to cancel his scheduled headlining appearance at Wireless Festival in the UK. NME reports that the rapper will not be performing at the Birmingham and London stages of the show on Friday and Saturday and will be replaced in London by Kanye West. Rudimental will play an extended set to replace him in Birmingham, where West was already set to perform.
Drake said in a statement, "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."
Ticket holders at the Friday show will recieve £20 of ‘Wireless Credit' upon arrival at the site, redeemable anywhere on site for food, beverages, merchandise and funfair rides. Refunds are be available from the point of purchase before the show.
