The Apollo Theater performances by Drake have been rescheduled a second time.
After initially postponing his performance on November 11 in order to attend his friend and fellow rapper Takeoff's death that day, the Her Loss musician has upcoming gigs booked for December 6 and 7.
The most recent alteration, according to a joint statement by Drake, his radio station Sound 42, and broadcasting corporation SiriusXM released to People magazine, is the result of production delays.
"These upcoming shows for SiriusXM are so incredibly special for us. If you are going to play the world famous Apollo Theater, it has to be a world class production. We as a team have been working around the clock not just putting together a concert but an experience our fans deserve. With that said, we are up against some production delays that are just out of our control," the statement read.
The statement goes on to say that the choice was made following numerous "difficult meetings" and discussions and that doing so would give the project the time it needed to be finished.
