Off the back of a very successful year, Drake has announced a 22 show European tour alongside friend and fellow Canadian artist Tory Lanez. The tour starts on March 10th with two nights in Manchester before Drake takes the show to the continent with dates in Paris, Antwerp and Amsterdam.

His Instagram post, below, shows six dates in London and three in Birmingham – meaning half of the European shows takes place in England. The highly anticipated tour, named “Assassination Vacation” will be Drake’s first tour to touch down in the UK since 2017.
