Grammy® Award-winning, multi-platinum selling recording artist Drake today announced his 41-city North American Would You Like A Tour? arena tour in support of his highly anticipated upcoming album release Nothing Was The Same, due out later this year. The tour starts Wednesday, Sept. 25, at Portland’s Rose Garden Arena and will include a stop at Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre   on Tuesday, Oct. 22. The tour will feature Grammy® Award-winning rising R&B star Miguel, who will support on all dates and feature special guests including rapper Future. Tickets for the Live Nation produced tour go on sale Friday, June 21, at 10 a.m.

The tour announcement comes as buzz for Drake’s new album Nothing Was The Same continues to escalate since the release of the album’s first track Started From The Bottom. The hit single burned up the charts landing in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Drake has since released two more songs, 5AM in Toronto and Girls Love Beyoncé, directly to fans online via OctobersVeryOwn.net.

Nothing Was The Same follows the critically acclaimed and multi-platinum selling Take Care (Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Republic), which earned Drake his first Grammy® Award for Best Rap Album and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in 2011. Drake’s full-length album debut, 2010’s Thank Me Later, also bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart the week it was released and has been certified Platinum by the RIAA. The album earned Drake multiple Grammy® nominations, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album and Best Rap Solo performance.

Miguel hit the mainstream in 2010 with the infectious first single All I Want Is You from his major label debut album of the same name. The album also features Sure Thing, which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B chart and his second U.S. No. 1 Quickie. Miguel followed up on the success of his debut album with his critically-acclaimed, Grammy Award nominated sophomore release Kaleidoscope Dream, which features his third U.S. No. 1 hit single Adorn. In 2013 Miguel was nominated for a total of five Grammy Awards. Lead single Adorn garnered his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and resided at the No. 1 spot on the R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart for more than 23 weeks. He was recently the musical guest onSaturday Night Live garnering rave reviews across the board and was also included as one of Timemagazine’s 100 Most Influential People.
