Drake officially began his 28 day tour “It’s All A Blur” with fellow rapper 21 Savage. The pair will perform in 54 cities, including Miami, as of June 16 through Oct. 9. 

Drake is a popular Canadian rapper who has entertained his fans since 2006 with new albums and features. With 12 number one albums his fan base has continued to grow overtime attracting large crowds across the U.S. 

“He’s been to New York, Boston, Chicago, the Northeast and the Midwest,” Luke Labell, sophomore, said. 

There have been over 20,000 ticket scams since Jan. of 2022. To prevent this, concert attendees advise using well known apps and websites with background checks before purchasing.

“I’m thinking about buying from this app called Gametime or StubHub, or you could get tickets from SeatGeek, those are the safe websites I know of,” Doug Uccellini, JHS teacher and coach, said. 

Tickets are averaging around $300, making Drake the first rapper to make at least $5 million from a single arena concert. 

“My ticket was about $1000,” Isabela Prado, junior, said. “I have a suite view, but it’s still crazy.”

Drake and 21 Savage released their first ever collaboration with “Sneakin,” in 2016. 

“I think they work really well together especially in the album ‘Her loss.’ I really like that one,” Riley Curtis, sophomore, said.

Drake has released a few albums since 2022 such as “Honestly, Nevermind” and “Her Loss.” He announced on his Instagram his new album coming out this year, “For All The Dogs,” on Aug. 21.

“I didn’t know there was a new album out until I heard people talking about it and I always look forward to new music. I liked his last two albums,” Curtis said.

The show has stemmed controversy due to the use of profanity and suggestive lyrics. 

“I’ve seen a lot of videos on it. I just heard it was inappropriate and he uses a Snapchat filter on his fans making it look like they are crying he is super interactive,” Prado said.

If planning on attending pack light to avoid long security check lines and head straight to the merchandise stands as specific sizes are not promised. Arrive at the venue early to find parking, get food and drinks and to find your seat before the crowd.
