Drake is without a doubt one of the most popular rappers on the planet and he is also regarded as one of the most influential musicians of his time having won numerous awards including four Grammys. Drake recently took New York City on a journey through his career at a SiriusXM concert at Harlem’s iconic Apollo Theater. However, his show was cut short when a fan fell from the balcony.

Drake performed an intimate show live from Harlem’s Apollo Theater on Sunday, January 22. Drizzy performed his hits and B-sides while bringing out artists such as Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, and Dipset. However, near the end of the night, the entertainment came to a halt when a fan fell from the second floor upper deck and landed on the audience below.

In the video, Drake is about to introduce 21 Savage for their collaboration “Rich Flex” when something that appears to be a phone or a shoe falls from the upstairs balcony, followed quickly by a whole person, who appears to drop head first with his feet in the air. Drake took a break from the show to check on the individual.

“Alright, we gotta make sure somebody’s OK,” Drake tells the crowd with 21 Savage by his side. At the time not all concertgoers were aware of what had happened with some in the crowd thinking an in-house camera setup capturing the show had collapsed.

The show was postponed for roughly 20 minutes as the individual was tended to. A second video shows the individual being helped out by Apollo workers while he appeared to walk shakily.

Drake finished the event a short time later, stating that he and 21 Savage will go on a tour this summer in support of their Her Loss album. Drake’s Apollo gig was originally scheduled for November 11, 2022, but was postponed due in part to Takeoff’s memorial ceremony being held on the same day.
