Drake cancels tour dates due to injury
Drake has canceled the three remaining Summer Sixteen tour stops —Toronto on Oct. 9, Philadelphia on Oct. 13 and Newark on Oct. 16 — because of an ankle injury.

For the tour, Drake performed at the Joe Louis Arena in August, shocking the crowd when he brought Eminem on stage to join him for their 2009 collaboration “Forever.” He also performed at The Palace of Auburn Hills in July. On Monday, Drake announced a Boy Meets World Tour in Europe that will kick off in January. Also on Monday, he earned 13 American Music Awards nominations, breaking Michael Jackson’s record of 11 nominations in 1984.

Michigan filmmakers debut film on drug abuse
This month, two Metro Detroit filmmakers who’ve struggled with drug addiction are premiering their film, “Life Prescribed,” based on the true story of Waterford resident Joseph Atwell, who suffered from prescription drug abuse. The premier will be held at the Landmark Main Art Theatre in Royal Oak at 7 and 9 p.m. Oct. 20. “We hope this film brings the skeletons of substance abuse out of family closets,” director Kyle Couch of Pontiac said in a statement. “It is a very dark world, and ‘Life Prescribed’ doesn’t gloss it over. Our hope is that lives will be impacted after watching our film.” The $30 tickets for the screening, which includes hors d’oeuvres and a panel discussion with the cast and crew, will benefit Grace Centers of Hope, a Pontiac-based homeless rehabilitation and recovery organization that helped Couch and writer Matthew Santia of Fraser on a path to sobriety.
■The Detroit Symphony Orchestra will perform pieces from “Stars Wars” noon to 1 p.m. Saturday at Somerset Collection’s Grand Court. The performance coincides with the building of a Star Wars LEGO installation, where children and adults are welcome to help LEGO Master Builders construct a large-scale model of the Millennium Falcon spacecraft Friday through Monday.
