Drake, Future coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa
All the excitement over Beyonce's Lemonade this weekend has overshadowed the fact that one of the OTHER Biggest Albums of 2016 comes out this week: Drake's Views From the 6, his long-awaited proper follow-up to 2013's Nothing Was the Same.
On Monday, Drake sought to reclaim a bit of that spotlight by announcing a headline tour with fellow smash rapper Future and "special guests." It'll hit Tampa's Amalie Arena on Aug. 27. Tickets are $49.50 and up, and they go on sale Friday. Click here.
While Drake is the big draw here -- with hits like Hotline Bling and Started from the Bottom, the guy has a legit claim to the title of North America's biggest rapper -- Future has arguably risen to the arena level himself this year.
The prolific Atlantan recently played Saturday Night Live and has a hit with the Weeknd in Low Life. When they hit the stage together for Jumpman, the arena will be as lit as it'll be all year. (And who wants to take some guesses as to those "special guests?")
