Drake Postpones Start Of Tour For More Rehearsal Time

Drake's 'Would You Like A Tour?' has been postponed until October so the recording artist can have more time to rehearse and plan for shows.

The singer's beloved fans will now have to wait a little longer to see the anticipated 2013 tour, which is in support of his upcoming 3rd studio album.

Drake has rescheduled his North American 39-ctiy tour with Miguel and Future, which was originally planned to star on September 25th in Portland, Oregon, but has now been pushed back to commence in Pittsburgh on 18th October 2013. Dates in Saskatoon, Winnipeg and Cleveland have been cancelled due to the postponement, however refunds for the cancelled dates are available.

The 'Take Care' singer announced the postponed via his reps who said the reschedule changes are "due to an intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements that will be part of the show," in a press release.

The young Canadian's schedule has been full as of late due to the upcoming release of his third studio album 'Nothing Was The Same' that includes hit singles 'Hold On, We're Going Home' (released August 13th 2013) and 'Started from the Bottom' (released February 6th 2013).

Drake's busy week started on Friday (Sept 20th) with a performance and chat on 'The Ellen Degenerous Show' and he will perform yet again on Saturday (Sept 21st) at 'IHeartRadio Music Festival' in Las Vegas, as well as making guest appearance on 'Chelsea Lately' this Monday (Sept 23rd).

On September 24th, when 'Nothing was the Same' is released Drake will be stopping by NEW York City's 'Best Buy' at 622 Broadway for an in store appearance.
