Drake Returns to the UK
DRAKES BEST SELLING LIGHT DREAMS & NIGHTMARES TOUR TO HIT UNITED KINGDOM WITH SPECIAL GUEST J.COLE
Grammy-nominated, Aspire/ Young Money/ Cash Money recording artist Drake, in the midst of his critically acclaimed Platinum debut album Thank Me Later, a high charting radio single “Find Your Loveˇ, a national advertising campaign for Kodak and a recent top selling North American Tour, has announced details and dates for his 2011 European tour, Light Dreams & Nightmares. Although Drake has performed as support to JAY-Z in the United Kingdom, this will be Drake’s first headline tour across Europe. Earlier this year Drake had planned a few dates in The UK but had to cancel the tour before it even got started to attend to family matters back home in North America.
Drake returns to the UK will feature special guest, Roc Nation artist J.Cole, and Drake’s full band.
The Light Dreams & Nightmares tour will make stops at theatres throughout the United Kingdom and Western Europe, beginning in Glasgow, Scotland on January 5, 2011 at the O2 Academy, concluding on January 23, 2011 at the Forest National Club in Brussels, Belgium. The tour, which includes two nights at the Hammersmith HMV Apollo in London, will also make stops through England, France, Germany and Holland with additional dates to be added.
Currently a successful tour across North America, The Lights Dreams & Nightmares tour hit over 20 cities including two sold out nights at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
