Miguel delivered a surprise performance to less than 100 people at Ortlieb’s.
Drake canceled his concert in Philadelphia last night, pulling the plug an hour after the show was scheduled to start. Philly.com reports that fans had already entered the Wells Fargo Center when they were notified that Drake would not be performing that night.
A spokesperson for the venue issued a statement explaining the last-minute change: “Due to the elaborate nature of tonight’s show and an unexpected technical issue, Drake’s ‘Would You Like A Tour’ concert at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia has been postponed until Wednesday, December 18th.” The tickets for Saturday’s performance will be honored for the new date.
Miguel took a bad situation and made it awesome by deciding to host a last minute impromptu surprise show at Ortlieb’s Lounge. It might not have been 19k people, but the 100+ packed into Ortlieb’s famously intimate venue made for quite a memorable performance. And by intimate we’re talking about fans tying Miguel’s shoe onstage, kiss fans on the cheek, and some dances with the crowd. The young star stayed to meet and drink with every last fan till Ortlieb’s shut things down.
