After tackling a handful of summer fair and festival appearances, rapper/actor Drake will set out this fall on a headlining jaunt dubbed the "Dreams and Nightmares Tour."

The outing gets underway Sept. 21 in Miami, and is currently slated to hit a dozen cities by early November. Fellow rappers Clipse will hold down the opening slot.

Before setting out his "Dreams and Nightmares" run, Drake will give an Aug. 1 headlining performance in his home country at Toronto's OVO Music Festival. That show -- which takes its name from Drake's entertainment company, October's Very Own -- will also feature Young Jeezy, Francis & The Lights, and Bun B, among others.
