Drake Postpones European Tour Due To Mother's Illness

Drake eschews the European leg of his tour to take care of his mother.

Young Money rapper Drake announced Thursday (July 1) that he will be postponing the European portion of his Away From Home Tour, which was set to begin Friday, in order to take care of his sick mother.

The rapper's mother is currently fighting an arthritic condition, and an illness that leaves her extremely fatigued.

"Despite my best hopes, it is apparent that my mother will need surgery earlier than anticipated," said Drake in a released statement. "In light of this news, I have made the difficult decision to cancel my European tour in order to support her during her recovery, just as she supported me through the years. I cannot thank my European fans enough and look forward to performing abroad soon. I ask everyone to please respect my family's privacy during this time."

The rapper has rescheduled shows in Paris, Amsterdam and London for November 2010. However, several of his European stops were festivals, which means the rapper will not be able to make them up.

Drake will be back on tour July 16 for the Canadian portion of the tour, which includes stops in Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver.

    Much respect to taking care of family before business. Although some of these comments are ridiculous, ok ok, i know its your opinion, but your opinion is not based off enough information, your missing out on alot of music if you think Drake is anywhere near the best or is gonna be on top for the next 10 years. Matter fact, with the way todays society is going, the massive amounts of stupidity thats being seen, it very well could be that he stays on top, who knows. The only music i appreciated of Drake's was "So Far Gone" before he got with lil wayne The Worst Rapper Alive

    Handle your business Drake with taking care of your mom. This is what it's all about. Who cares how many records you sell? Family is very important and if someone is on the blog saying anything negative about your situation, they MUST hate the woman who gave them birth. I'm proud of you as a young man to know that you love your mom. God Bless-

    drakes father played drums for jerry le lewis who sang great balls of fire and admitted he was a huge satan worshipper... jerry had interviews on how he says he is doing the devils work...... It is no fluke way drake is on top of the game his dad and uncle who were famous musicans know the industry.
