Drake is cancelling the rest of his summer tour because of an ongoing ankle injury.

A spokeswoman for the rapper-actor says doctors have advised him to cancel the remaining dates of his Summer Sixteen Tour "to allow him time to recuperate his ankle injury."

The cancelled stops comprise Philadelphia on October 13 and Newark, New Jersey, on October 16.

The Hotline Bling singer previously postponed three concerts in New York and New Jersey because of the injury, as well as a show in Toronto.

Drake had announced that his 26-show The Boy Meets World Tour is set for January through March 2017 in Europe.
