LOS ANGELES, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Grammy^® Award-winning,
multi-platinum selling, recording artist Drake today announced his 41-city
North American WOULD YOU LIKE A TOUR?  arena tour in support of his highly
anticipated upcoming album release NOTHING WAS THE SAME, due out later this
year. The tour starts Wednesday, September 25^th at Portland's Rose Garden

support on all dates and feature special guests including rapper Future.
Tickets for the Live Nation produced tour go on sale beginning Friday, June

The tour announcement comes as buzz for Drake's new album NOTHING WAS THE SAME
continues to escalate since the release of the album's first track "Started
From The Bottom." The hit single burned up the charts landing in the Top 10
on the Billboard Hot 100. Drake has since released two more songs, "5AM in
Toronto" and "Girls Love Beyonce," directly to fans online via
OctobersVeryOwn.net.

NOTHING WAS THE SAME follows the critically acclaimed and multi-platinum
selling TAKE CARE (Young Money / Cash Money / Universal Republic), which
earned Drake his first Grammy^® Award for "Best Rap Album" and debuted at #1
on the Billboard Top 200 chart in 2011. Drake's full-length album debut,
2010's THANK ME LATER, also bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart week of
release and has been certified Platinum by the RIAA. The album earned Drake
multiple Grammy^® nominations, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, and
Best Rap Solo performance.

Miguel hit the mainstream in 2010 with the infectious first single ALL I WANT
IS YOU from his major label debut album of the same name. The album also
features "Sure Thing," which hit #1 on Billboard's Hip-Hop/R&B chart and
second US #1 "Quickie." Miguel followed up on the success of his debut album
with his critically-acclaimed, Grammy Award nominated, sophomore release,
KALEIDOSCOPE DREAM, which features his third US #1 hit single "Adorn." In 2013
Miguel was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards. He was recently the
musical guest on SNL garnering rave reviews across the board and was also
included as one of Time's 100 Most Influential People.
