Rapper Drake has been forced to pull his entire European tour, including a scheduled slot at Oxegen in just over a week due to a family emergency.
He had this to say:
"Despite my best hopes, it is apparent that my mother will need surgery earlier than anticipated. In light of this news, I have made the difficult decision to cancel my European tour in order to support her during her recovery, just as she supported me through the years. I cannot thank my European fans enough and look forward to performing abroad soon. I ask everyone to please respect my family's privacy during this time."
The full list of cancelled dates is below:
Hove Festival (July 2)
Roskilde Festival (3)
London Wireless Festival (4)
Paris La Cigale (5)
Amsterdam Paradiso (7)
Les Ardentes Festival (8)
Oxegen Festival (9)
