It sounds like Drake is finally giving the people what they want and has plans to hit the road in 2023. Although no dates are confirmed, the One Dance singer recently shared in an interview that he's excited to perform his new music for his fans. Considering his last tour was back in 2018 with Migos for their Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour, we can confidently say this tour is long overdue. Here's what we know so far.
The certified heartbreaker himself has given fans something to look forward to in the upcoming year. Since his 2018 tour with Migos, Drake has dropped a whole lotta music, from Dark Lane Demo Tapes in 2020, Scary Hours 2 and Certified Lover Boy in 2021, Honestly, Nevermind this year, and his latest collaborative album Her Loss with 21 Savage in November. Champagne Papi has been dropping hit after hit after hit, but with the exception of a few shows here and there, the artist has not been on tour in years. And sounds like he's missing the road.
During a recent live stream with the gambling company Stake, the 36-year-old rapper was asked about his plans for 2023 by Twitch Streamer Roshtein, when he revealed he's most excited to share his music with his fans. "Tour. Ah, man, I can't wait. You know, it's so unfortunate, the other day I was rehearsing a bunch of days, and one of the shows got pushed back," he said, referring to his upcoming shows at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York City. He continued, "But yeah, man, I'm just looking forward to going… it's like one thing to make the music but to see it is the most gratifying feeling." Okay, Drizzy, we hear you!
The Rich Flex singer was initially supposed to perform at the Apollo Theater in November, but the show was postponed to not overlap with Takeoff's funeral. After a second date was added and slated for December 6th and 7th, they were postponed to January to have "a world-class production," according to Drake, SiriusXM, and Sounds 42. The statement continued, "We as a team have been working around the clock not just putting together a concert but an experience our fans deserve. With that said, we are up against some production delays that are just out of our control." Regardless, we're just ready to see Drake work, work, work, work, work his magic on tour this year. Stay tuned.
