Grammy-winning Drake has pushed back the start of his "Would You Like a Tour?" tour, rescheduling several of the initial performances for later in the year.

The Canadian performer cited an "intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements that will be part of the show" as the reason for the delayed start and rescheduled dates.

The new tour kickoff is slated for Oct. 18 in Pittsburgh, PA, and extends beyond the previously-scheduled end Nov. 25 in L.A. Rescheduled dates begin Nov. 28 in Vancouver and wrap up Dec. 16 in Auburn Hills, MI.
