Drake Hits Austin
Drake drops dates for summer tour — and it kicks off in Austin
There's a 100 percent chance of Drizzy in Austin. On Monday, Drake announced the schedule for a massive North American summer tour, and it includes four Texas dates.
The Summer Sixteen tour kicks off in Austin on July 20 at the Frank Erwin Center, featuring special guests Future, Roy Woods, and DVSN. In the past year, Drake has shown Austin some major love. The Grammy Award-winning rapper headlined Austin City Limits Music Festival in 2015 and surprised audiences with a show at Fader Fort during SXSW.
Following his appearance in Austin, Drake plays the American Airlines Center in Dallas on July 21. He stops in Houston on the last leg of the tour, playing the Toyota Center on September 3 and 4.
The tour includes more than 30 dates in the U.S. and Canada in support of his upcoming album, Views from the 6, which will be released on April 29.
Tickets for Drake's tour also go on sale to the public on April 29. American Express card members can purchase tickets during a pre-sale, starting April 26 at 10 am.
