Drake might be coming to your city in 2023. The rapper announced on a live stream for his betting site Stake over the weekend that he will be hitting the road next year.
“Tour. Ah, man, I can’t wait,” he said in response to his plans for 2023. “You know, it’s so unfortunate. The other day I was rehearsing a bunch of days and one of the shows got pushed back. But yeah, man, I’m just looking forward to going. It’s like one thing to make the music but to see it is the most gratifying feeling.”

The last time Drizzy went on tour was with the Migos in 2018 for the Drake & The Three Migos Tour.
Before the announcement of this upcoming tour, Drake was originally set for a Nov. 11 concert in New York at the Apollo Theater but was pushed back due to it being the same day as Takeoff’s memorial service. The concert was then rescheduled for a Dec. 8 and 9 date that reportedly was delayed due to production per HipHopDX. The concert has now been rescheduled for Jan. 21 and 22 of 2023.
Drake has recently been up against some unforeseen circumstances and apparent production delays which have caused his plans to close out 2022 with some exclusive concert experiences to be delayed.
The Toronto rapper’s excitement for tour comes as no surprise as he has had two successful albums released this year. The emcee scored his 11th and 12th No. 1 albums with Honestly, Nevermind, which dropped in June, and his recent Her Loss collab with 21 Savage which was released last month.
