SCROLL DOWN FOR UK DATES
Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum selling, recording artist Drake today announced that he will be returning to the UK in March 2014 for arena shows in seven cities with support on all dates from special guest The Weeknd.
The tour will start in Manchester on the 11th March and visit Sheffield, Nottingham, Birmingham, Liverpool and London .
Drake tickets for the UK dates of his 'Would You Like A Tour 2014' with THE WEEKND, will be available on Aloud.com from 9am on Friday November 1st
Drake’s new album ”Nothing Was The Same” – one of the most critically acclaimed and feverishly anticipated new albums of the year – debuted at number 1 on the US Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and entered the UK album chart at number 2. The album has already been certified Platinum in the US and also features his brand new single “Too Much”, due to be released on December 9th.
Debuting to widespread acclaim from music writers and critics, in its four-star review of NOTHING WAS THE SAME, Rolling Stone hailed, “Drake makes his best yet,” and the New York Times declared, “…Drake is on top now, the genre’s stylistic standard-bearer and its most reliable and versatile hit maker…”
Drake has enjoyed a landmark 2013, winning his first-ever Grammy Award in the category of "Best Rap Album" for his critically revered platinum album, “Take Care”, and has remained a distinctive presence across both hip-hop and popular culture.
Following their collaboration on the track “Live For”, fellow Canadian The Weeknd will be joining Drake as a special guest on all UK dates. The track – which clocked up over half a million plays on Soundcloud in one day when revealed online earlier this year – is taken from The Weeknd’s second full-length album “Kiss Land” which was released to critical acclaim in September.
Released in November 2011, Drake's second studio album Take Care debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 chart at #1 and was the biggest first-week Soundscan tally of Drake's career, with over 630,000 units sold. The eagerly anticipated album was the third highest selling debut of 2011, clocking in behind Lady Gaga's Born This Way (1.1 million sold) and label president and mentor Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV (964,000), which Drake also appeared.
Take Care arrived to a chorus of acclaim from critics and consumers alike with Rolling Stoneraving that Drake "seamlessly blends those genres (Pop, R&B, Rap) in fluid, rich tracks.", and New York Times anointing Drake as "hip-hop's current center of gravity".
