UPDATED 1/16/24, 11:15 p.m. ET: J. Cole and Drake’s joint tour has been postponed just two days before it was set to kick off in Denver, Colorado.

Billboard reports that the It’s All a Blur Tour — Big As the What? experience will now launch in Tampa, Florida on Feb. 2. This bumps the Jan. 18-19 dates in Denver three months back, to April 15-16.

The other shows that would’ve gone down before they hit Florida—Jan. 22-23 in San Antonio, Jan 25-26 in Oklahoma City, and Jan. 29-30 in New Orleans—have also been rescheduled.

Just last month, Drake and Cole linked up for the For All the Dogs track “First Person Shooter,” which went on to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. As Drake’s 13th chart-topper, the track gave him the distinction of tying a record long held by the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

In a recent A Safe Place discussion with Lil Yachty, Cole reflected on the track’s success, specifically it having given him his first-ever No. 1 hit on the Hot 100 chart.

"I’d almost feel better not having my first No. 1 be off a Drake alley-oop, you know what I mean?" Cole told Yachty. "Like, I love Drake and I love that I’m a part of that moment with him with Michael Jackson. But it’s like, bruh, I’m grateful I’m a part of it."

Over the summer, Drake surprised fans at a tour stop in Montreal by bringing Cole out as a special guest. Revisit that moment here.
