Drake hit with fine for going over venue curfew

Drake has reportedly been hit with a $13,000 fine after running past the concert curfew at his show in Texas.

The One Dance star took the stage long after his scheduled start time at Dallas' American Airlines Center on Thursday night (21Jul16), and consequently ended the show later than usual, walking off around 12:35am local time, according to TMZ.com.


However, the overtime is going to cost the hip-hop star thousands of dollars, since venue bosses enforce a strict cut-off time of midnight for all concerts.


Officials at the arena fined him $6,500 for every 15 minutes he played past 12am, but Drake apparently didn't care about the fine - he reportedly told the crowd he was going over the curfew in order to give fans a full set, and had no qualms about handing over the payment.


Drake's Summer Sixteen tour with rapper Future only kicked off on Wednesday (20Jul16) in nearby Austin. He is slated to go on as planned in Kansas City, Missouri on Saturday (23Jul16).
