Drake might be hitting the road for the first time in five years when 2023 rolls around.
In a recent livestream appearance with Stake, The Boy was asked by Twitch streamer Roshtein about what he’s looking forward to the most next year. “Tour. I can’t wait,” he answered, further confirming with Roshtein that his last tour engagement was in 2018 (with Migos for the “Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour”). “You know it’s so unfortunate, the other day I was rehearsing like, a bunch of days and one of the shows had gotten pushed back,” Drizzy further stated, possibly referring to the already-rescheduled Apollo Theater shows meant to take place on December 6 and 7. “But yeah, man, I’m just looking forward to going,” he continued. “It’s like one thing to make the music but to see it is the most gratifying feeling.”
His shows at the Apollo Theater were initially meant for November 11, but had to be delayed after the sudden death of Takeoff. Drake’s team added a second date meant for December, but were rescheduled again to January 21 and January 22, 2023 as they wanted to ensure that they can deliver “a world class production.”
Drake’s setlist and the extent of his upcoming tour are yet to be confirmed, but with the releases of Certified Lover Boy, Honestly, Nevermind and Her Loss with 21 Savage, fans are hoping for an updated setlist.
