HYFR: Drake is coming to Buffalo on Sunday - UPDATED

Drake returns to Buffalo this October.

blog by Ben Kirst  • 

(Update: Drake announced that, due to a tight rehearsal schedule and the production requirements of the venues in which he was expected to play, his Buffalo show originally scheduled for Oct. 16 will be postponed until Sunday, Dec. 15. Tickets run from $50 to $100 and can be purchased here.)

If you wear every single chain even when you’re in the house, clear your calendar for Wednesday, Oct. 16—Drake’s coming to Buffalo.

The Grammy Award-winning artist, who spent the weekend partying in Atlanta with 2Chainz and T.I. and dropping into the MuchMusic Awards in Toronto, announced today his 41-city Would You Like A Tour? road show would kick off on Wednesday, Sept. 25 in Portland, Ore. The tour will then swing through western Canada, cut through the American Midwest and then cruise through the Rust Belt in mid-October.

Tickets for the Buffalo show at First Niagara Center go on sale this Friday.

 


Drake will not play his hometown, Toronto, on this particular tour. The 62-day excursion ends at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday, Nov. 25.

The announcement bookends a major 12-hour cycle in hip-hop news: Jay-Z’s three-minute spot for Samsung during halftime of Game 5 of the NBA Finals revealed that the rapper will be releasing a new record entitled Magna Carta Holy Grail with Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland

For his part, Drake hasn’t said much about the tour just yet—his only original tweet today is typically obtuse:


Drake will be supported on tour by R&B singer Miguel, a fellow Grammy winner, and Atlanta rapper Future. That’s right—Drake, Miguel and Future at the same damn time.

Drake is wrapping up work on his newest studio album, Nothing Was The Same, and his dad recently leaked a track list that includes contributions from heavy hitters like Justin Timberlake, A$AP Rocky, Jay-Z, Timbaland, Swizz Beats, James Blake (!) and many more. Should be huge.

His most recent single, ‘Started From The Bottom,’ reached the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100.
