Drake and Amsterdam are having a tough 2017. Although he opened his Boy Meets World Tour there in January, it was only after the initially scheduled two dates were postponed–twice. And on Monday, the first of the two re-rescheduled dates got called off only after fans were already in the building ready to grind to More Life's "Blem" and scream the new classic lyric "I DON'T TAKE NAPS!"

The 17,000-capacity Ziggo Dome saw a concert promoter take the stage to boos and thrown drinks, informing the #drizzyhive, "I'm really sorry to tell you that tonight's show cannot take place. Drake got sick. His doctor told him not to perform." She said Wednesday is the make-up show, "as he wishes to bring his fans the best show in the world."

Drake is also scheduled to play the Ziggo in Amsterdam tonight, in what would have been the final Boy Meets World Tour gig. He has only played three shows—one in London and two in Glasgow—since More Life dropped on March 18.
