Just hours before he was supposed to perform, Live Nation Ontario told fans that Drake’s Toronto show on Monday was being postponed.

The concert was to be the first of three stops for the ‘Aubrey and Three Migos’ tour in the city. The reason given for the cancellation was “circumstances beyond our control.”

There is no word yet on what those circumstances were nor when the show might be rescheduled, naturally leading to some very disappointed fans taking to Twitter to vent their frustration.

What made it worse for fans is seeing both Drake and Migos out and about, making no mention of the cancellation.

Drake was busy on a somewhat more forgivable mission — fulfilling the wish of a Chicago girl awaiting a heart transplant.

Drizzy visited 11-year-old Sofia Sanchez on Monday at the Lurie Children’s Hospital during his tour’s stop in Chicago. In a video posted on Instagram he says he cancelled his Toronto show to see her.

He shared photos on Instagram, saying they had talked about Justin Bieber and basketball.

Drake visited Sanchez after seeing the Downers Grove girl’s video version of his song, “In My Feelings,” which inspired a viral dance craze.

In her video, Sanchez dances in a hospital hallway while tethered to her IV pump, and she says she loves Drake’s music and asks if he can come cheer her up for her birthday. She turned 11 on Saturday.

Drake did not mention or post anything about the cancellation in Toronto or how it may have affected his fans.
