Drake & migos
Drake has announced a 41-date tour with his Walk It Talk It collaborators Migos that will stop at the Air Canada Centre over two nights in August.
The Toronto rapper is hitting the road on the Aubrey And The Three Amigos Tour in support of his upcoming fifth album, Scorpion, which is expected to be released in June.
Drizzy appeared during Majid Jordan’s April show at Rebel and told the crowd OVO Fest would take place at the Air Canada Centre, but it’s not clear if the Amigos tour will double as OVO Fest (as Drake and Future’s Summer Sixteen Tour did in 2016).
OVO Fest has generally been more fun when the crowd can soak up the summer vibes at the outdoor Budweiser Stage (formerly Molson Amphitheatre). Fans can still hold out hope that will happen: presently, there are no concerts booked on the August 6 long weekend at Budweiser Stage, which is when OVO Fest has been held for the past eight years.
Then again, maybe Drake is happy to lock into the predictable machinations of a pre-planned arena tour after outdoing himself with a massive replica of the CN Tower for OVO Fest 2017.
August 10 and 11 at Air Canada Centre (40 Bay). $TBA. On sale Friday, May 18. ticketmaster.ca.
