Drizzy complied, then took to Twitter to show his love to concertgoers: “Police made me cut the show short but I love you all for rocking with me Irvine,” Drake tweeted early Wednesday morning.
Before the show, he urged ticketholders via Twitter to arrive early to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. With a jam-packed bill that included J. Cole, 2 Chainz, French Montana, Waka Flocka Flame and Meek Mill, Drizzy warned fans that they wouldn’t want to miss any of it. Apparently, Drake and his tourmates had too much planned, and Irvine police had to shut down the show early.
A representative from the Irvine Police Department confirmed to MTV News that they had to wrap it up at approximately 11:45 p.m., forcing the MC to cut about three songs from his set. There were no incidents at the event, but because of the amphitheater’s close proximity to several residential areas, police asked Drake to end his show after he went past his scheduled stop time. The “Marvins Room” MC complied.
This leg of Drake’s tour, in support of his latest album, Take Care, kicked off Monday and will run through June 17. “I tried to put together a tour that consisted of … everybody that you hear in your spare time,” Drake told MTV News on the set of 2 Chainz’s “No Lie” video in L.A. just before the tour.
“These are the guys that are currently on the top of the game, so I tried to bring ‘em all out [for] one night. And that’s why the tour’s called Club Paradise, because I want it to feel like you’re gonna hear every song that you wait to hear in the club.”
The tour resumes Thursday night in Phoenix. Get there early.
