Drake Brings Club Paradise Tour to US and Europe
College can be a confusing time. There are parties, whirlwind romances, drunken hook-ups and heartbreaks -- all of which figure into the music of Drake. It's appropriate, then, that the Toronto singer and rapper should launch a tour of campuses across America.
Earlier today (Dec. 13), Drizzy announced the Club Paradise Tour, a 17-date run of shows that will feature special guests Kendrick Lamar -- heir apparent to the West Coast rap throne -- and A$AP Rocky, one of the East Coast's fastest risers.
The trek begins Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, in Miami, and after the final show -- March 11, in San Diego -- Drake and his band head to Europe, where they'll play arenas and theaters throughout Ireland, England, Scotland, France, Belgium Germany, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
Drake hasn't performed in Europe since last January's Light Dreams & Nightmares Tour, so fans across the continent will finally get their first live taste of the Young Money signee's 'Take Care' material. They're bound to know the songs, as the MC's sophomore effort has been selling well and earning plenty of critical love on both sides of the Atlantic.
