Drake and 21 Savage’s It’s All a Blur tour stop in Memphis has been canceled.

As fans will recall, the Memphis show at the FedEx Forum was previously slated for June 29. In April, the would-be stop was announced as the new first show of the tour after a routing tweak and the shufling of several other dates.

Now, following its pushback to Aug. 6, the show has been deemed "logistically impossible," spurring a cancelation.

"Unfortunately, the event organizer has had to cancel your event," a message on the show's Ticketmaster page states as of Tuesday. "No action is required to obtain a refund. It will be processed to the original method of payment used at time of purchase, once funds are received from the event organizer, which is usually completed within 30 days."

Per a report from the Commercial Appeal, a local paper, spokespeople for Drake told the 19,000-capacity venue that it wouldn’t be possible to put together the show as intended.

"Due to the magnitude of the production of the Drake concert, it is logistically impossible to bring the show as designed to the FedExForum on August 6th,” the reported statement read. “Unfortunately, the show is canceled."

Complex has reached out to Live Nation for comment. This story may be updated.

It's All a Blur will touch down in Nashville in October for two nights at Bridgestone Arena. Additional remaining stops on the blockbuster tour—which marks the "Summer Games" sequel denier's first extensive tour in five years—include Atlanta, Houston, Austin, Las Vegas, and more.

Both Drake and 21 are currently fresh off memorable appearances on Travis Scott's long-awaited Utopia, which hit streaming services last Friday. Drake, specifically, made a slew of headlines shortly after the album's release due to lyrics from his "Meltdown" verse.
