Drake concert chronology

The Would You Like a Tour? was a concert tour by Canadian rapper, Drake. It began on October 18, 2013 in Pittsburgh and continued until March 5, 2015 with its final show scheduled in Brisbane, Australia. Scheduled for 66 performances across North America, Europe, and Oceania, the tour was produced by Live Nation in conjunction with his third studio album, Nothing Was the Same.

The tour would begin two months after the fourth annual OVO Festival in Toronto, and featured various opening acts across the different legs of the tour, including Future, Miguel, Jhené Aiko, PARTYNEXTDOOR and The Weeknd.[1] Most of the track-list from Nothing Was the Same was performed, such as singles "Hold On, We're Going Home", "Started from the Bottom", and "Worst Behavior". Additional singles where Drake and the opening act had collaborated on were also performed, including "If Only They Knew", "Crew Love", and "Fo Real".

It would gross over $46,200,000 throughout its duration, making it one of the highest grossing hip-hop tours of all time.[2]

Background[edit]

Drake would hint an impending tour, tweeting "Would You Like a Tour?" on June 13, 2013.[3] Later that week, Drake would confirm the tour, announcing that the "Would You Like A Tour?" was set to feature in over 38 stadiums and arenas across the United States and Canada.[4] The tour was scheduled to begin on October 18 in Pittsburgh, and conclude on December 18 in Philadelphia.[5] The "Would You Like a Tour?" concert tour was in support of Drake's third studio album, Nothing Was the Same.[6]

On October 15, 2013, it was reported that Future had been removed from the tour due to disparaging comments made by him towards Drake during a Billboard interview. It was rumored that Future was demanding $1.5 million for lost wages, owing to a reported $40,000 guaranteed payout per gig.[7] Despite this, it was later revealed, however, that Future was not removed from the tour, with Drake confirming that the rapper would remain on the tour. He would later announce that PARTYNEXTDOOR would also be featured on the tour.[8] On October 29, the tour would be extended to a European leg, with The Weeknd performing as the opening act.[9]
