The rapper Miguel played an impromptu show on Saturday night after Drake pulled out of his own performance at the last moment.
Drake was scheduled to take the stage at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia when he pulled out one hour before the show.
Before the show was set to begin a spokesperson for Drake released the following statement:
“Due to the elaborate nature of tonight’s show and an unexpected technical issue, Drake’s ‘Would You Like A Tour’ concert at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia has been postponed until Wednesday, December 18th.”
Tickets for last nights show will be honored for Drake’s December 18 appearance.
While Miguel wasn’t able to simply step onto the Wells Fargo Center stage, he did throw an intimate impromptu show for 100+ fans at Ortlieb’s Lounge. In comparison, Drake was set to rap in front of more than 19,000 people.
The venue for Miguel’s performance was so packed that fans were able to tie his shoes together while he performed and one fan even kissed him on the cheek. Other members of the crowd dances around Miguel as he performed.
After his impromptu show was completed Miguel stuck around and chatted up fans while having a few drinks. He stayed at Ortlieb’s until it was closed down for the night.
While fans are likely still yearning to see Drake on December 18, at least 100+ lucky fans were treated to an extended double header.
Drake and his team have not yet explained what type of technical glitch led to cancellation of the show.
What would you rather see, Drake on a stadium stage with 19,000 screaming fans or Miguel performing an impromptu show with front and center seats for everyone in attendance?
