Hip hop star Drake is set to perform a massive concert tour alongside recent album collaborator 21 Savage for the It’s All a Blur tour.

It marks the first tour for the rapper since 2018’s Aubrey & the Three Migos tour, which featured former rap group Migos, including the late Kirsnick Khari Ball, better known as Migos’ Takeoff.

Drizzy, known for hits including Hotline Bling and Laugh Now Cry Later, added a dozen more dates to his already jam-packed slate for his 2023 tour.

Among the cities that now have shows on the concert tour are Austin, Charlotte, Columbus, Denver, and Memphis.

He also added two more dates for Toronto, allowing him to close out the tour in his home city.

Along with that, some of Drake’s previously-scheduled shows were rescheduled to different dates, which has drawn the ire of fans based on the changes.

12 dates were added to Drake’s tour, with some shows rescheduled

Drake begins the Live Nation-produced It’s All a Blur 2023 tour featuring 21 Savage with a newly added show on June 29 at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee. A second of his new shows is scheduled for July 1 at Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Brooklyn’s Barclays Center gets a fourth show on July 21, with a new one added for Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum on August 3.

Along with those, Drake added a fourth show for Inglewood’s Kia Forum on August 16 and a second show in Glendale, Arizona, on September 16 at Desert Diamond Arena.

His other newly added shows are Denver’s Ball Arena on September 8, the Moody Center in Austin, Texas, on September 11, Charlotte’s Spectrum Center on September 22, and Nahsville’s Bridgestone Arena on October 1.

As mentioned, Drake wraps things up with two shows to close out the tour in Toronto at Scotiabank Arena. These take place on October 5 and October 7, although his touring partner, 21 Savage, will reportedly not be at those shows.

According to Billboard’s report, concert dates set for New Orleans, Nashville, Houston, Dallas, Miami, and Atlanta have been rescheduled. These were initially scheduled to occur between June 16 and July 2 but are now set to take place between September 14 and October 2.
