Drake Announces Summer Tour With Future, 2016 OVO Fest Lineup
Drake fans will have much more than warm weather to relish this summer.
The Views From the 6 artist, whose new album is set for release on Friday (April 29), announced a new tour — for which he'll co-headline with Future — on Twitter this morning (April 25). The Summer Sixteen tour, named for Views' lead single, will kick off in Texas in July and wind through the United States until a final show in Vancouver in September. Roy Woods, DVSN and additional guests will support.
Drake and Future most recently collaborated on 2015's What a Time to Be Alive.
In the event a summer's worth of concerts isn't enough for Drake fans, the rapper also announced details for the 2016 OVO Fest, which will feature Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa. The seventh annual event will land on Toronto's Molson Canadian Amphitheater on July 29 and follow a 2015 lineup that included Future, Pharrell Williams and Kanye West.
Until then, fans will have to hold themselves over with Views From the 6, the cover of which Drake unveiled last night (April 24). Complex first noticed that some fans mistook the featured CN Tower artwork for stock imagery, but the site pretty much debunked the notion.
