He may still be living in shadow of the new music and controversy surrounding Beyoncé's surprise audio and visual album drop for Lemonade on Saturday night, but Drake is trying to steal some of that spotlight back before the release of his new LP Views From The Six later this week. To support the album, Drake is heading out on tour this summer, dubbed the Summer Sixteen Tour, which will find him linking up with his What A Time To Be Alive running mate, Future.
The tour will kick off in Austin, Texas at the Frank Erwin Center on July 20. Over the next two months, Drake and Future will take over arenas all across North America in cities like Detroit, Chicago, Toronto, Miami and Atlanta. Four cities are getting back-to-back showings with these two - Chicago, New York City, Houston and Los Angeles.
The tour will end of Sept. 17 in Vancouver.
Roy Woods, DVSN and other special guests will appear to support along the way.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 29 via Ticketmaster.
