Drake at the Apollo” has a nice ring to it, but fans will have to wait a bit longer to catch Drizzy at the famed New York City theater.

Originally scheduled for Nov. 11 — and postponed to Dec. 7-8 due Takeoff’s funeral processions — Drake, SiriusXM and Sound 42 released a statement to Complex detailing another delay for the OVO mogul’s forthcoming concert. The show will now take place Jan. 21-22, 2023 instead of next week.

“These upcoming shows for SiriusXM are so incredibly special for us. If you are going to play the world famous Apollo Theater, it has to be a world class production,” per the statement. “We as a team have been working around the clock not just putting together a concert, but an experience our fans deserve.”

With that said, we are up against some production delays that are just out of our control,” it continued. “The shows will now take place on January 21st and 22nd. The Apollo has been so incredibly gracious throughout this process and we look forward to bringing a legendary show to this legendary stage.”

The acclaimed Harlem venue holds a max capacity of 1,500 people, and is poised to be a much more intimate event than Drizzy’s previous outings at October World Weekend and the Young Money Reunion concert. Following two chart-topping records in Honestly, Nevermind and his new joint album with 21 Savage, Her Loss, the show’s announcement was met with an overload of excitement from fans and Drake’s peers alike.

Per usual, Drake dominated charts in 2022. Amid 2022’s Spotify Wrapped results this week, Drizzy was named the No. 1 most streamed artist in the United States and No. 3 in the world. Previously hopping on DJ Khaled’s God Did for the Bee Gees-interpolated “Staying Alive” with Lil Baby, which helped him surpass The Beatles to become the artist with the most Top 5 hits in Billboard Hot 100 history, it’s evident that Drizzy is in his most influential era — well over a decade into his career.

This story will be updated.
