There’s the 27 Club and the Sophomore Slump — music curses that have eerily predicted the future based on the past. But over the weekend, a new music curse surfaced when two of the biggest rappers in the world — Kanye West and Drake — were forced to cancel the second night of both of their respective tours. Drake canceled night two of his Would You Like A Tour? tour in Philadelphia for technical reasons, while West cited “unforeseen circumstances” for bowing out of a Vancouver stop on his fresh Yeezus tour. They’re not alone. Rihanna fell victim to the second show curse earlier this year as well, when she was diagnosed with laryngitis, while Justin Bieber canceled the second night of a Portugal run.
The curse of the second show is real. Who will be its next victim?
