The tour will begin about two weeks after its expected July 26 opening date in Utah. According to TMZ, the shows will now get underway on August 10 in Kansas City, MO. The St. Paul show is rescheduled to August 12, Toronto is rescheduled to August 20, 21, 22, Salt Lake City will now take place on October 10, and the Denver shows on July 28 and 29 have been postponed with replacement dates yet to be announced. An August 20 show in Chicago has been canceled.
“In order to deliver the high standard tour experience our fans expect and deserve, we have made the necessary decision to slightly adjust the beginning of the Aubrey & the Three Migos tour schedule,” a spokesperson for Drake said, per Pitchfork.

This news comes in the wake of Offset's arrest in Georgia for gun possession on July 20. He was reportedly pulled over for an illegal lane change and officers found three hand guns in the vehicle. A source close to the tour tells TMZ that the change in schedule has nothing to do with the arrest but was due to the show's production not yet being ready for fans to have a full experience.
Complex has reached out to Drake's reps for comment.
