Drake‘s upcoming shows at New York City’s Apollo Theater have been postponed for a second time. According to a statement obtained by Complex, the recent delay has everything to do with production issues.

“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,” reads the statement from Drake, SiriusXM and Sound 42. “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.”

Drake’s show was originally planned for November, but changes were made as it coincided with the funeral of friend and one-third of MigosTakeoff; the concert was moved to December and a second date was added.

“After many difficult meetings and conversations” regarding the recent production delays, Drake and his team have decided to reschedule for January 21-22.

“The Apollo has been so incredibly gracious throughout this process and we look forward to bringing a legendary show to this legendary stage,” they said.
