Drake Cancels All Meet & Greets Following Christina Grimmie Murder

Drake has pulled the plug on all meet & greet sessions following the horrific murder of the vocalist Christina Grimmie.

Details on his decision below…

Fans who paid to secure access to the rapper on his forthcoming ‘Summer Sixteen Tour’ have learned that the VIP packages and meet & greet sessions which would have allowed them do so have been pulled.

Announced after the aforementioned Christina was shot by a fan named Kevin Loible as she spoke with supporters earlier this month, Drake’s move sees him stand as one of the first artists to tighten security in response to the murder, and the massacre of club goers at Florida’s Pulse nightclub by Omar Mateen.

The Daily Mail adds:

Fans who shelled out for VIP package were to get a seat in one of the first five rows as well as a ‘professionally taken individual photo with Drake,’ and goodies including a car freshener, a foam hand, a ‘floaty pen, disposable camera, a candle and an incense holder, according to the Ticketmaster website.

    Y’all care to know that Drake and future performing at the Madison Square Garden for 5 nights won’t make as much as the 2 shows Bey had in New York?

    I’m just trying to see why do y’all always find a way to force other artists’ names into post that have NOTHING to do w/them? People bringing up Mariah & Beyonce, like you must really have no life & nothing else to live for. Now folks bout to start arguing over NOTHING! Get a Job! Get in School! Read a Book! Pick up a Trade! Be Positive!

    I met JoJo last year at a very small venue and everyone was checked before JoJo was even ushered into the building. I upgraded my ticket for a TLC meet & greet at a much larger venue a couple years ago and there were numerous security checkpoints along the way. There were, however, some mistakes and oversights made and someone could’ve taken advantage of it if they knew what they were doing. Since Drake already promised the meet & greet, I think he should hire more muscle if he needs to and just give the fans what they paid for. I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the show if I were a fan and that was taken away from me.
