Fan Falls From Balcony During Drake’s Apollo Concert Onto New York Giants Players, Rapper Pauses For Wellness Check

All relevant precautions were taken during the shocking incident.

On Sunday night (January 22), Drake paused his SiriusXM concert at the Apollo Theater after a fan fell from the balcony.

Page Six reports that when the Toronto rapper brought out Her Loss collaborator 21 Savage around 90 minutes into his set at the historic Harlem theater, a man fell from the balcony into the orchestra pit.

A source told the news outlet that a man did not actually fall from the balcony, but rather, he “jumped into the crowd from the balcony because he was so hyped.”

Another source said to Page Six that players from the New York Giants were within the area that the man fell, adding that they “landed on the New York Giants!”

Drake stopped the show right after being alerted moments later. Once it was clear that the fan was mobile and fine, he continued the show.
