Drake, who has a new album “Views From the 6” due out Friday, has announced plans for his North American tour with Future set to go down this summer. And surprise! He’s kicking it off here in Austin on Wednesday, July 20.

Tickets to the show go on sale this Friday at texasboxoffice.com.

We’ve had a lot of Drake over the last couple years. First there was the “battle” with Lil Wayne in 2014. Then he headlined two weekends of ACL Fest last year. Most recently, he did a quick pop-in at the Fader Fort during SXSW 2016.

We’re starting to think he actually likes us. Perhaps one day we actually will sit down for a chat over some seared scallop tacos.
