Drake announces world tour – tickets on sale this Friday

Grammy Award-winning and platinum-selling recording artist Drake has announced that he will be bringing his The Boy Meets World Tour to Europe early next year.

Following the success of his Summer Sixteen tour across the US, Drake’s latest live show is growing to global proportions; kicking off in Amsterdam on 21 January 2017 before heading to London’s O2 for a staggering six-show run. This will be supported by multiple shows across the UK, including dates in Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield.

Drake’s trailblazing success has seen him become the first artist to break one billion streams on Apple Music with his latest album Views – he also holds the record for the most No.1 hits on Billboards RnB/hip hop chart. Last month Drake released a short film,  Please Forgive Me, inspired by his latest album.

How do I improve my chances of bagging tickets?

We’re expecting Friday morning to be exceptionally busy for this tour. So, here are some tips on how to best prepare and increase your chances of securing tickets. Notepads at the ready!

1. Open your account and log in now

Get the details out of the way before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. We recommend checking passwords, delivery address and billing information now, to reduce any stress when processing your order later on. Head to and log in to your account to get started.

2. Don’t refresh your screen

Stick to one window when you’re being pushed through the virtual queue and always resist the urge to refresh. Hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue and, as frustrating as it can get, patience is the only way to win this game.

Ticketmaster is equipped with sophisticated systems that are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen is actually doing something and will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.


3. Check when tickets are available – even once they’re on sale

Keep up-to-date with news at . If anything changes with Drake tickets – anything at all, even new dates – our social followers will be the first to know about it.

We send real time updates as the general sales happens, including any technical difficulties that might occur (there are a lot of Drake fans, remember) and alerts on when new tickets come available. When we have popular tours come on sale, we try our very best behind the scenes to secure as many tickets for you as possible and here’s where you’ll know if we’ve been successful.

5. Don’t oversleep on Friday

That would be disastrous.

Tickets for Drake’s The Boyd Meets World Tour go on sale at 09:00 on Friday 14 October. Get yours at
