A History of Drake Tours – Tickets Sold, Money Earned
When it comes to hip-hop tours, no one puts more butts in seats than Aubrey Drake Graham. The 6 God has headlined or co-headlined 10 tours (excluding his six-date promotional Jungle Tour in 2015) so far in his illustrious career, a time spanning from 2009 to 2023.
According to a Billboard feature published on Nov. 2, 2023, revealing the Top 20 Grossing Hip-Hop Acts of All Time, Drake is No. 1 on the list. He grossed $472.9 million in just over 300 tour shows performed. Those shows have been attended by 3.9 million raving fans. For his show at Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Penn., on April 9, 2010, Drake earned $191,000. Since then, Drizzy has leveled up. His biggest shows have raked in $13.5 million, including multiple dates at the O2 Arena in London in 2019.
The only thing that's stopped Drake from going on the road is the pandemic. Following his Assassination Vacation Tour in 2019, Drake returned to the stage and spent three months in 2023 on his widely popular It's All a Blur Tour with 21 Savage, during which he dropped his latest album For All the Dogs. One tour date earned the Drake the title of the first rapper to surpass $5 million for a single U.S. show. In November of 2023, Drake announced his latest tour, It's All a Blur Tour - Big As The What?, with J. Cole, which will find Aubrey taking on another 32 shows beginning in February of 2024.
