Drake and Migos have pushed back their tour following Offset’s arrest.
The 31-year-old rapper and the hip hop trio – made up of Takeoff, Quavo and Offset – have postponed their ‘The Aubrey and the Three Amigos Tour’ by 15 days to ensure they can deliver a “high standard” on the road.
A rep for Drake said: “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.”
Their run of shows was due to begin on July 26 in Salt Lake City Utah based on the schedule posted on their Instagram, but the first gig will now be in Kansas City, Missouri, on August 10.
Offset – who is married to Cardi B, – was arrested for gun and drug possession last week after police officers said they witnessed him performing an improper lane change.But his lawyer Drew Findling believes he was “targeted” by police. He said: “It’s a common theme. We’re talking about a young, African-American man driving a shiny, beautiful luxury car and clad in designer clothes and watches and jewellery.
“Unfortunately people in his genre become a target for law enforcement who think that lifestyle is connected to some illegal activity … and that is a sad statement.”
