2016 promises an epic homecoming for Drake. Drake, along with rapper Future, will perform five dates in Toronto in 2016. Their Summer Sixteen Tour kicks off on July 20 in Austin, Texas at the Frank Erwin Center. They conclude on October 15 in Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center. The July 29th show at OVO Fest in Toronto will mark Drake’s return to his hometown after several years. Drake has sold out shows for years now.
Born as Aubrey Drake Graham in Toronto in 1986, Drake grew up steeped in the vital Toronto rap and R&B music scene including Lloyd Moseby and Kardinal Offishall. Listed at 5th place in the Forbes Five, Drake stands as the fifth most wealthy Hip-Hop artists in the world. Drake has remained a dedicated son of Toronto music. Skipping the 2015 Grammy Awards ceremony, Drake attended the annual Toronto rap battle, The King of the Dot, instead. “There were important battles going on that day… itt was better than the Grammys,” Drake admitted during an interview with the Canadian reporter, Nardwuar.
Atlanta, Georgia-born Hip-Hop artist Future joins Drake on the Sweet Sixteen Tour. Future, born as Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn in 1983, made his name in joining forces with the Dungeon Family. He later recorded under Epic Records and A1 Recordings. He eventually created his own production company, Freebandz.
The Sweet Sixteen Tour debuts Drake’s new album, Sweet Sixteen. Drake produced the album at longtime friend, engineer, and musical collaborator, Noah “40” Shebib. Shebib’s father, a renowned cinematographer and artist, has been a mentor for Drake for years. Drake’s brother also helped produce the album.
Drake and Future will play one night in Edmonton, AB on September 20th at the venue, Rogers Place. Drake and Future will be joined by Roy Woods, DVSN, and other special guests. They will play a total of nine nights in Canada. Tickets are still available for the show at the new arena, Rogers Place. The concert at Rogers Place is produced by Live Nation Alberta.
