Drake unveils 2013 U.S. tour dates with Miguel -- Minneapolis in December
Chart-topping hit-maker Drake has been generating plenty of excitement and anticipation for his forthcoming new album, Nothing Was the Same, with each hot new single released. And now, the Grammy-winning Canadian rapper has just announced a large-scale U.S. tour in support of his new record, and he's bringing soulful crooner Miguel and R&B visionary Future along as his opening acts.
The 41-city jaunt has been dubbed by Drake the "Would You Like a Tour?" North American arena tour, and chances are they will be making a stop somewhere near you at some point this fall during their exhaustive cross-country run of shows.
After a few Northwest and Canada dates, Drake and Miguel and Future are set to bring their musical stylings to the Target Center on
October 5, a mere eight stops into their planned musical assault on the States December 8. The rapper postponed the original date and a dozen others due to "an intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements."
Hopefully, Miguel's poorly planned and terribly executed leap at the recent Billboard Music Awards won't prevent him from making the tour, as a potential lawsuit is being mulled over by the woman Miguel unfortunately landed on during a performance of his hit single, "Adorn."
But after a stint opening for Alicia Keys, Miguel and his music have never been hotter, and this coveted opening slot on Drake's massive tour will only cause his profile to grow.
