Jaunt will be rapper's first in the UK since 2014


Drake has pushed back the start of his ‘The Boy Meets World’ European tour.

The rapper was due to kick his jaunt off in Amsterdam Ziggo Dome tonight (January 26) and tomorrow.

The dates were originally set for January 20 and 21, but Drake rescheduled them last year.

A statement from Netherlands-based concert and festival organiser Mojo Concerts reads: “Earlier we informed Drake fans on the rescheduling of his Ziggo Dome concerts. We are very sorry to inform you again that the Drake concerts on January 26 (original date January 20) and January 27 (original date January 21) in the Ziggo Dome have been moved to new dates.

“Drake wants to bring a complete new show to Europe and not a copy of the shows in the US Unfortunately due to unforeseen production setbacks it will need a little bit more time to be ready. The international and local crew have been working on this production since January 17 in the Ziggo Dome and Drake was all set and has started his rehearsals this week. He can’t wait to start this new tour and show his fans this amazing concert.”

Last year, Drake also pushed back a number of UK tour dates due to “unforeseen production setbacks”.

Shows in Glasgow on January 25 and 26 were moved to March 22 and 23 respectively, while the London date on January 28 was rescheduled to March 20. All UK dates are due to go ahead as planned.
