While there might have been some apprehension, the nearly 2,000 fans who decided to come out Thursday to Club Republic, the same venue as the previous canceled show, heard and watched Drake perform seven songs, including “Sicko Mode,” “Nonstop” and “God’s Plan.”

"It was just packed in there. It was great - the atmosphere was amazing. It's something that's going to be heard about here for a long time," organizer Sukh Singh told Leicestershire Live. "It was legendary, that room was crazy."

Drake performed earlier that night in Birmingham as part of his Assassination Vacation Tour. That show ended around 11:30 p.m. and Drake arrived in Leicester around 1:20 a.m., Leicestershire Live reported.
