Fans who answered “yes” to Drake”s “Would You Like A Tour” forthcoming concert outing will have to wait a little longer to see the Canadian rapper live.

Citing “an intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements,” Drake announced that the outing, which was supposed to start Sept. 25 in Portland, Ore. will now start Oct. 18 in Pittsburgh.

The 16 dates affected by the shift have now been tacked on to the end of Drake’s tour, according to Pitchfork.
Now that he”s pushed back the tour, Drake found time to go on “The Ellen Show” yesterday and awkwardly answer her “Who Has Drake Dated” questions and plug his new album, “Nothing Was The Same,” which comes out Sept. 24. He clammed up a little about Rihanna, but was more forthcoming about Nicki Minaj.
