Due to the overwhelming success of the first half of Drake’s Away From Home Tour, the Toronto MC recently announced that he’s adding a slew of new dates.
The Young Money artist, who is now slated to open for Jay-Z at the MEN Arena in Manchester, UK on June 7 and the LG Arena in Birmingham, UK on June 9, has added his own European and Canadian tour stops as well. He’ll also participate in three European festivals – Hove, Roskilde, and Wireless- and end his tour with his own OVO Festival.
As previously reported, Drizzy originally planned to visit 25 cities this past April, making more than 15 stops at college campuses. The tour, originally scheduled to end May 8, will now be extended throughout July.
Heartbreak Drake has already performed in front of three sold out crowds in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Denver so far on this second run. His upcoming show in Philly sold out in five minutes.
His debut album Thank Me Later hits stores June 15.
