Drake Announces Australian Headline Tour Dates

The dormant Australian “Drake Tour” website has now sprung to life, announcing the rapper’s maiden Australian headline tour. Drake will perform all ages shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane when he’s in town for Future Music Festival 2015 in February/March. Supporting him on all dates will be fellow rapper and frequent collaborator 2 Chainz.

Drake is known for his impressive live productions, which include pyrotechnics, fire, lasers, and huge lighting and sound systems. The Canadian hip-hop artist recently toured the US on the Drake vs Lil Wayne co-headline tour, but will be headlining his own Australian tour next year, performing material from his three studio albums.

Drake released his latest album, Nothing Was The Same, in September 2013. Since then he has fueled a mini-feud with tennis player Nick Kyrgios, but has also shown his less serious side by disguising himself and asking for the public’s opinion of him and his music.

In July, Drake revealed to Billboard that he’s at work on his next album, titled Views From The 6. One of the richest stars in hip hop, he is now worth an estimated USD$33 million.

Drake is set to headline Future Music Festival in March, as the festival travels through Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane. 2 Chainz is also set to play at the festival. Other acts on the lineup include Avicii, The Prodigy, Die Antwoord and Martin Garrix.

Drake’s 2015 Australian tour begins in Sydney on Wednesday, 25th February, and wraps up in Brisbane on Thursday, 5th March. Tour and ticket details are available below.
