Drake left fans in Philadelphia devastated on Saturday after cancelling the second gig of his Would You Like A Tour? trek less than an hour before show time.

Concertgoers had reportedly already started taking their seats at the Wells Fargo Center when it was announced that technical difficulties had forced the star to postpone the set until December, according to Billboard.com.

Rebecca Goodman, spokeswoman for the venue, said, “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, Dec. 18.”
