Drake becomes latest victim of on-stage attack as he is hit by cell phone

Drake announces ‘It’s all a blur’ tour with 21 Savage

Drake was hit by a cell phone while performing, making him the latest victim of an on-stage attack following a string of incidents involving other musicians.

The 36-year-old kicked off his It’s A Blur tour in Chicago this week but while he was performing a cover of Ginuwine’s So Anxious, a phone hit him on the wrist and fell to the ground.

Thankfully, the Hotline Bling singer wasn’t injured and didn’t stop singing, carrying on with the first concert of his four-month-long tour.

The rapper hasn’t toured since 2018 with the Aubrey & The Three Migos tour and has since released four more albums.

He is far from the only star to fall victim to bad behavior from his audience either as these attacks have grown more common, sadly.

It was even more terrifying for singer Ava Max, 29, when a stage invader jumped up during a performance in Los Angeles and slapped her across the face.

She tweeted afterwards: “He slapped me so hard that he scratched the inside of my eye. He’s never coming to a show again. Thank you to the fans for being spectacular tonight in LA though!!”

In November, Harry Styles was in the middle of a concert, blowing kisses to fans, when his head suddenly went back and he clutched his eye as someone had thrown a Skittle at him.

Adele, 35, addressed the rising issue of audience members acting out during one of her own concerts.

She told a crowd at her Las Vegas residency Weekends with Adele: “Have you noticed how people are like, forgetting f***ing show etiquette at the moment?

“People just throwing s**t on stage, have you seen them?

Adele then joked: “’I f*****g dare you. Dare you to throw something at me and I’ll f*****g kill you.”
