21 Savage Will Not Be on Canadian Dates for Drake's It's All a Blur Tour
21 Savage will not be coming to Canada on Drake’s upcoming It’s All A Blur Tour.
Drake’s It’s All A Blur Tour is scheduled to hit Montreal on July 14 and 15 and Vancouver Aug. 28 and 29. Details for the Toronto show are “to be announced.”
Savage is not listed on Ticketmaster’s page for the Canadian shows, nor on the websites for Rogers Arena and the Bell Centre. A source has confirmed he will not be on those dates.
21 Savage has a well-publicized immigration and legal situation that could prevent him from entering the country.
In 2019, 21 was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). It was revealed he was a citizen of the United Kingdom who overstayed an H-4 visa that expired in 2006. That case is still pending.
It was also later revealed during that initial incident with ICE, he was charged with gun and drug possession. He turned himself in for those charges in 2021. 21 Savage continues to fight those charges.
There was some hope among Canadian music fans that the Drake factor would come into play again. The Canadian superstar posted that he “runs the border” on the screen during the Young Money reunion in Toronto last year, when it seemed like Lil Wayne wasn’t going to make it, only to appear triumphantly.
The pair dropped collaborative album Her Loss last year.
