All tickets for Monday’s show — which was supposed to be the first of two performances of Drake’s ‘It’s All A Blur’ Tour in Vancouver — will be honoured on Wednesday, according to Live Nation.

The concert scheduled for Tuesday is expected to go ahead as planned.

Some fans, many of whom travelled into town or waited in line outside the stadium today to score tickets, were understandably upset about the late-breaking news.

Others have been left wondering if they will receive a refund if they are unable to attend Wednesday’s make-up show.

According to Live Nation’s web page, refunds for postponed shows “are determined on an event-by-event basis by the event organizer.”

“If the event organizer approves refunds and/or credits, we will send you a notification explaining your options, and you may submit a request for a refund or credit. Alternatively, you may simply keep your ticket(s) to the postponed, rescheduled, or moved event.”

If a show has been postponed for more than 60 days — and no rescheduled dates have been announced — a 30-day window for refunds will open at that time.
