Kansas City rap and hip-hop fans got some big news on Monday. Two of the biggest names in the industry announced their summer and fall tour dates and Kansas City made the cut. Drake and Migos will be bringing their show, “Aubrey and the Three Amigos”, to the Sprint Center on July 31.
The 31-year-old Drake will be teaming with Migos for a 41-city North American tour, kicking off in Salt Lake City on July 26. As the third city on the tour, Kansas City will be one of the first lucky locations to preview the new show. Born Aubrey Graham, the Canadian-born Drake will join the rap trio Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff, known to fans as Migos.
American Express cardholders will get the first crack at the tickets through the exclusive pre-sale offering beginning at 10 am on May 15 and continuing through 10 pm on May 17. Tickets will be made available to the general public beginning at 10 am on May 18. Show tickets can be purchased through the Sprint Center.
Fans will get a preview of what is in store when Drake releases his fifth studio album on June 28. The album, “Scorpion”, has been revered after the release of two singles, “Nice for What” and “God’s Plan”. Both singles have already reached the top of the Billboard singles chart, achieving Platinum status.
Migos is riding high after the release of their second studio album, “Culture II”. Released in January, the album debuted at the top of the Billboard albums chart, solidifying its claim as one of the top acts of the last few years. Drake made a cameo appearance on the Migos “YRN” mixtape in 2013, helping to launch the group to fame.
