Drake ensured that the show proceeded as planned in Los Angeles on Saturday night, despite encountering a logistical hiccup. 

The much-anticipated performance, part of his Blur tour's four-date run at the Kia Forum, faced a last-minute snag in production. 

Taking center stage, Drake disclosed to the audience that the event almost faced cancellation due to these unforeseen challenges. 

Determined to avoid disappointing the capacity crowd, the 36-year-old Hotline Bling rapper expressed his commitment to finding a resolution. 

He recounted how intricate stage setup issues had arisen, prompting his crew to consider calling off the show.

However, Drake's determination prevailed. Resolute in his decision, he instructed his team to devise a solution, ensuring that the show went on without a hitch. 

This wasn't the first encounter with logistical setbacks for the artist; his August 6 show in Memphis had been postponed due to similar challenges. 

The rapper's five-year-old son, Adonis, was present in the audience. It proved to be an emotional milestone for the Rich Flex singer, as it was the first instance Adonis had the opportunity to witness his father's live performance. 

"I can't discuss certain topics tonight in L.A.," Drake remarked, alluding to the typical display of enthusiasm, "because my son is at the show for the first time ever."

He jovially implored the crowd to maintain a family-friendly atmosphere, stating, "So we've got to keep this real PG tonight. Y'all keep your bras on."

Drake, offered a serenade to his young son.
