One of the hottest stars in today’s hip-hop scene, Drake has finally announced plans to go on tour in 2015. The Toronto native confirmed the details of his Jungle Tour on April 13, revealing five major arena dates for the spring starting May 24 at the Toyota Center in Houston. Find a full list of Drake’s upcoming tour dates featuring opening act Future, in addition to his upcoming festival appearances, at the bottom of this page.
Among the newly announced Drake tour dates for 2015 will be stops in Auburn Hills, Mich., Chicago, and Montreal. Drake is also scheduled to return home to Toronto on June 2 to headline the Air Canada Centre. It’s likely the OVO Founder will extend the Jungle Tour with additional dates later in the year, but currently the rest of his summer schedule is filled with festival sets.
Drake confirmed the Jungle Tour just a day after his performance at the first weekend of Coachella, and he’s booked to return for the second and final weekend this coming Sunday, April 19. Later in the summer he’ll headline New York’s Governors Ball for the first time in his career alongside The Black Keys, Deadmau5, and Florence and the Machine. In August, Drake will co-headline the sixth edition of his OVO Fest in Toronto with J. Cole, Big Sean, and Kevin Hart, before wrapping up the summer at the Squamish Valley Music Festival.

Previously only released digitally, the mixtape debuted at No. 1 on the mainstream album charts in both the U.S. and Canada when it dropped in February.
