Drake Headlining Solo Tour this Spring (Tour Dates Included)

Posted: Wednesday – February 10, 2010

Drake, hip hop’s most hyped lyricist of the moment, will headline his first North American solo tour this spring.

According to his spokesperson, the Grammy Award nominated Lil Wayne-cohort will take fellow Canadian rapper K-OS and New York City based synth-pop band Francis & The Light out on ‘The Away From Home Tour,” starting April 5 in a city to be determined.

This marks the 23-year old’s first concert outing since tearing his ACL (knee ligament) while performing as part of Lil Wayne’s ‘Young Money Presents: America’s Most Wanted’ music festival last July.

He’s since had to endure knee surgery and undergo rehabiitiation and thereby took a brief hiatus from recording his eagerly anticipated debut album, which may finally see the light of day next month.

The upcoming 25-city tour is in tandem with The Campus Consciousness tour, hitting colleges & Universities across the country and promoting green technology. Not only will the former ‘Degrassi’ star’s tour bus use bio-diesel, but he’s also decided to adopt biodegradable and recyclable products on the bus and backstage.

Drake has also vowed to make his tour rider agreement more eco-friendly.

Note-worthy stops are planned for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, as well as Bamboozle.
