The Canadian rapper/singer/actor continues the trek later this week in Dublin, Ireland (3/24), and pushes across Europe through the end of April.

The new U.S. portion of the outing kicks off May 7 in Concord, CA, and features 26 stops before wrapping up June 17 in Boston.

J. Cole will provide opening support for the North American run, beginning with the May 8 performance in Irvine, CA. Tickets for the excursion's new leg go on sale today (3/23) via Live Nation.


"I feel like this tour is coming at the perfect time," Drake explained in a press release. "It's taking place in the season that we all wait for. We're outdoors, and you've got every single artist you wait to hear in the club on one bill ... that's Club Paradise."


Drake unleashed "Take Care," his sophomore set, in November via Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records. The album, which follows his 2010 studio debut, "Thank Me Later," peaked at the top of The Billboard 200, as well as the magazine's Rap Albums and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts.
