In the summer of 2016, Drake will be touring North America with fellow rap icon Future on the duet’s Summer Sixteen Tour. The co-headlining enterprise is bound to be among the biggest hip-hop tours of the year, including stops at more than 20 arenas around the U.S. and Canada.
Take a look at all the Future and Drake tour dates at the bottom of the page for 2016.
Drake New Record “Views from the 6”
The announcement of Drake’s co-headlining tour with Future is a welcome surprise for fans because it also heralds the coming of his long-awaited studio album, “Views from the 6.” The record was released on April 29, following in the aftermath of singles “One Dance” and “Pop Style,” which featured Jay Z. and Kanye West.
Co-headliner Future also released a new studio album, “EVOL,” before this year. The record fell in February to become his second straight No. 1 album in the U.S.
DVSN and fellow OVO artists Roy Woods may also join the Summer Sixteen Tour as supporting acts.
Drake will reinstate his annual OVO Fest this summer in his hometown of Toronto, in addition to being on the road with his Summer Sixteen Tour. The three-day Caribana weekend music festival will kick off July 29 when Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa headline Molson Amphitheatre as part of their The High Road Tour. For the next two nights, the actions will move to Air Canada Centre for sets from Future, Drake, and other special guests.
