Drake fans, would you like a tour? If so, you're in luck, because he has a brand new one coming soon. Following up on the success of his previous Club Paradise Tour, the 41-city "Would You Like a Tour" arena tour kicks off on September 25 at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, OR, and ends on November 25 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. The tour features stops in St. Louis, Newark, Miami, Phoenix, and more. R&B; artist Miguel will open on all dates, and there will be other special guests, including Future, on select dates.
Since the end of the Club Paradise Tour last June, Drizzy has been busy with his upcoming album, Nothing Was the Same, to be released later this year. He released the first single, "Started from the Bottom," in February.

Last summer I did an analysis of how far people travel to get to a festival, thinking that most people were willing to go far from home to get to them. In fact, people did not travel very far. As it turned out, the largest chunk of people was only willing to travel up to 150 miles from home to attend a festival.
That was festivals; what about regular concerts? Well, at the time I generally knew that people traveled only short distances to get to them. What hadn't been done was an actual analysis. Now one has been done and the results are pretty stark.
Not only are people also willing to travel only up to 150 miles to get to a regular concert, it is the upper limit pretty overwhelmingly. While the numbers for festivals varied a lot (between 33% and 90% depending on the festival), with regular concerts the norm is almost always 60% of attendees only traveling 150 miles or less.
In case you missed him earlier this year (or just want to see him again), fear not because Drizzy is back on tour this spring. The Club Paradise Tour runs from May 7 to June 17 and includes stops in cities such as Phoenix, AZ; Dallas, TX; Clarkston, MI; and Camden, NJ. J. Cole, Wack Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, and French Montana will join Drake during the tour.
The current average selling price for this year's tour is $123*. The tour dates are below. Visit the Drake tickets page to place an order.
