The general ticket on-sale starts Dec. 1, while pre-sales begin Nov. 27 at www.frontiertouring.com/drake. "This show," its producers boast, "is going to be huge."
Drake is also enjoying a huge result on the U.S. charts. His collab on OVO-signing Makonnen Sheran’s "Tuesday" recently landed the Toronto native his 72nd entry on the Hot 100, lifting him past the Beatles (71) for sole possession of the eighth-most visits all-time. Earlier, he extended his record for the most No. 1s on the Rap Airplay chart, as "0 to 100/The Catch Up" gave him his 18th chart-topping title.
