Drake postpones remainder of North America tour due to injury

Drake has postponed the last few dates of his North America tour due to an ankle injury.

The singer pulled a number of shows last week, but a new statement confirms that the rest of his Summer Sixteen dates have now been postponed.

A statement read: "Drake suffered a severe ankle injury during the tour which he did his best to power through. By doing this, he made his injury worse.

"Under doctors orders and to ensure Drake only ever gives fans the performances they deserve, he will be postponing the remaining three dates of his Summer Sixteen tour to allow him time to recuperate his ankle injury. Drake's fans mean the world to him.

"Seeing their faces and performing his music for them is what he loves to do the most and he can't wait to get back on stage."

The shows were due to take place in Brooklyn and Newark.

Drake meanwhile on Monday (October 10) announced a series of UK and Ireland tour dates.

The shows will take place in January and February.
