Following 21 Savages appearance alongside Drizzy to perform songs off of Her Loss, a fan fell from the second-floor balcony onto the orchestra pit floor. The footage of the fall began circulating immediately but according to Insider, the incident prompted a pause in the show. Just gotta make sure somebodys OK, Drake said after a crew member informed him of the fall. A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) Drake later paused the show for nearly 15 minutes to ensure the safety of fans in the venue. The fan took out a light during the fall, and a crew member removed it. Then, they cleared out the cords hanging over the balcony. Over the speaker, someone announced that there were no injuries.

But I got even better news for you: Were at the Apollo so the show must go on. After acknowledging that there werent any injuries, Drake and 21 Savage said they would extend their set to make up for the delay. Lets just make some noise that everybodys OK, Drake said. I feel like they had to wait like 10 minutes, we should go up a little more. Drake had to pause his show tonight after someone accidentally fell off the balcony. Hes okay and they kept on preforming.
