Drake heads up "Dreams and Nightmares Tour"
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.
Also on Drake's dance card is an Aug. 13 performance at the Indiana State Fair and a Sept. 6 slot at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival. Details for all of the upcoming dates are shown at right.
Drake -- whose full name is Aubrey Drake Graham -- continues to work the road behind his latest album, "Thank Me Later." Released last month, the set features production from heavyweights such as Lil Wayne, Kanye West and Birdman.
