Drake Kicking Off Second Leg of Club Paradise Tour in May
After a couple of months of rest, Drake is ready to hit the road again. The Canadian rapper will embark on the second leg of his Club Paradise Tour in May. His first outing was a huge success and featured opening acts A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar.
The 27-city jaunt launches May 7 in Concord, Calif., and wraps up June 17 in Boston, Mass. Tickets go on sale March 23, so have your credit cards ready.
On his second leg, Drake is also bringing along some big-name rap stars. Rappers J.Cole, Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, French Montana and 2 Chainz are the opening acts. Wow! This is major. With all of these artists on one bill, Drizzy should call his trek the Hip-Hop Paradise Tour instead.
"I feel like this tour is coming at the perfect time," Drake said. "It's taking place in the season that we all wait for, we're outdoors and you've got every single artist you wait to hear in the club on one bill … that's Club Paradise."
Meanwhile, Drake recently filmed a video in Miami for the song 'HYFR' (Featuring Lil Wayne) from his platinum-selling album 'Take Care.' According to RapDose, the clip features guest appearances from Weezy, DJ Khaled and Trey Songz. Director Joseph Labisi shot the video at Temple Israel's school and daycare center where they reenacted Drizzy's childhood bar mitzvah. After the shoot, Drake was kind enough to sign autographs for fans and take pictures with students and teachers at the school. Mazel tov!
