Drake To Refund Fans After Disastrous Show In London Sees Travis Scott Fall Off Stage
The chart-topping rapper is currently on his worldwide tour, but a gig at London’s O2 arena has left Drake with the possibility of refunding millions of dollars to let down fans.
He has offered to refund the extortionate amount of money after too many technical difficulties occurred at his gig on Wednesday, February 1.
The 30-year old artist was performing the second of seven nights at the famous venue for his ‘Boy Meets World’ tour.
He invited friend and fellow American rapper Travis Scott on to the stage as a surprise for his UK fans, but they were given more than they bargained for when Scott had a shocking fall in front of the 20,000 members of the audience.
Travis was in the middle of performing hit track ‘Goosebumps’ when he fell into a large hole in the middle of the stage.
Drake rushed to help the 24-year old artist when he disappeared out of sight, but luckily Travis stepped out uninjured and proceeded to carry on with his performance.
The unexpected fall caused damage to staging equipment, including a huge globe that was underneath the stage and was set to rise up during the show.
It also caused technical issues with the sound, causing Drake to apologise to his fans and tell them they could have the concert for free.
The 30-year old star told the audience,
I’m doing this s*** for free tonight, I don’t give a f**k. Because, you know what? It’s real love in here tonight. I don’t give a f**k about none of these people f*****g up. I’m giving all their s**t back. London England, I love you, I hope you enjoyed your free show!” Despite his accident, Scott was pleased with his appearance and later tweeted: “That s*** was fun london is wild. By far one of the most turnt and epic s**t ever f**k.
With approximately 20k fans at show, if Drake sticks to his word about refunding all the concert goers, he will have to fork out over $2.5 million.
This isn’t the first time during the highly anticipated tour that there have been issues – the ‘One Dance’ singer had to postpone shows in Amsterdam, Glasgow and London before the tour had even kicked off due to sound problems.
