Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum selling, recording artist Drake announced his 41-city North American “Would you like a tour?” arena tour in support of his highly anticipated upcoming album release Nothing Was the Same.
The tour features two Los Angeles-area shows, Honda Center on November 21st and Staples Center on November 28th.

Drake’s Nothing Was the Same is due out later this year
The tour announcement comes as buzz for Drake’s new album Nothing Was the Same continues to escalate since the release of the album’s first track “Started From The Bottom.” The hit single burned up the charts landing in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Drake has since released two more songs, “5AM in Toronto” and “Girls Love Beyonce,” directly to fans online via OctobersVeryOwn.net.
Miguel hit the mainstream in 2010 with the infectious first single “All I Want Is You” from his major label debut album of the same name. The album also features “Sure Thing,” which hit #1 on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B chart and second US #1 “Quickie.” Miguel followed up on the success of his debut album with his critically-acclaimed, Grammy Award nominated, sophomore release, Kaleidoscope Dream, which features his third US #1 hit single “Adorn.”
In 2013 Miguel was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards. He was recently the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” garnering rave reviews across the board and was also included as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People.
