Drake's Summer Sixteen tour, which was announced April 25th with Future co-headlining, kicks off on July 20th in Austin, but fans who bought a pricier meet-and-greet option with Drizzy are now out of luck.

Ticket options initially included a special VIP package-- "6 God Meet and Greet"-- that includes a photo with Champagne Papi himself and assorted Aubrey merch. But, alas, as People reports via "an industry source" (Meek?), that option is no longer.

According to the source, Drake's meet-and-great portion of the VIP package has been axed due to "logistical issues."

The new VIP package consists of one close seat ticket (first five rows) and "6 God" merchandise -- including a candle, incense holder, disposable camera (and frame), foam hand and car freshener -- among other stuff that will probably be tossed out immediately by the people rich enough to afford the $1000 package.

Future's VIP package offering remains the same, with meet and greets still on the schedule for Summer Sixteen.

Meanwhile, here's what Drake's Views co-star Rihanna's fan meet-and-greets look like:

No new friends indeed.
