Drake and rap trio Migos have unfortunately been forced to cancel a trio of upcoming shows on their Aubrey and the Three Migos North American tour. The three (already rescheduled) shows in Saint Paul, Salt Lake City and Denver will no longer happen, with no real explanation given by the artists or their representatives, leading to more unfortunate press as disappointed fans as the tour continues on Monday night in Phoenix.
The two popular hip-hop outfits have seen their co-headlining run experience numerous cancellations and postponements beginning with the initial start of their tour and again with gigs in Toronto and Miami shortly thereafter. Refunds for the three newly canceled shows can be claimed through the point of purchase. The tour is still set to stop in Los Angeles for two shows at the STAPLES Center on Oct. 12-13, followed by regularly scheduled performances in Oakland, Seattle, Vancouver, Edmonton and two final gigs in Atlanta on Nov. 16-17.

Both Drake and Migos have celebrated big album releases so far in 2018, with Drake returning with Scorpion back on Jun 29, and Migos sharing Culture II back in late January. Songs off the new albums have been setlist staples throughout the tour thus far, in addition to surprise guests ranging from Travis Scott to Big Freedia. More recently, Drake appeared on a track titled “Never Recover” from Lil Baby and Gunna's collaborative album, Drip Harder. Back in September, a collaborative track featuring Drake and Jorja Smith titled "I Could Never" appeared online, but was quickly taken down on most sights as it was not one of those planned-leaks with approval from the artist or their label. Oops.
In other news, Drake’s Scorpion broke records upon its release as the first album or EP to have singles spend 29 cumulative weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with "God's Plan,” "Nice for What" and "In My Feelings.” The record had been held previously by Usher and the Black Eyed Peas, so Drake’s still got that going for him, which is nice.
