As of this writing, a search for “Drake” and “Drake Summer Sixteen” and “Drake Detroit” turns up no results on the Ticketmaster website.
However, that hasn’t stopped folks from making their desperate plans to earn the money to pay for Drake and Future concert tickets. One fan joked that she’d sell a kidney to see Drake and Future in concert.
“Y’all know anyone trying to buy a kidney because I’m trying to go see Drake and Future in concert.”
Drake and Future are being called a rapping dynamic duo, with rumors that Future might appear on Views From the 6. The fact that Drake and Future toured together years ago and now are set to go on tour again – with Future having gained a lot more recognition since that time – is being called inspiring by fans.
Already those fans are begging one another to attend the Drake and Future concert with them – with Drake and Future’s fans not wanting to attend the concert alone.
“Someone come with me to Drake and Future on August 16.”
Other fans are calling a concert starring Drake and Future their perfect first concert to attend as a fan. Some are writing on Twitter that only if their “bae” loves them will they take them to see Drake and Future in concert.
Most fans are tweeting about buying Drake and Future concert tickets as soon as they are available, however, with the Live Nation page showing an error at this point, one wonders if the concert information was inadvertently posted too soon – or if so much traffic to the site is causing the error.
Drake and Future have plenty of songs together that they could perform for their fans – but with only one city date for the concert being announced thus far, fans are getting anxious.
As seen in the top photo above from Saturday, June 20, 2015, Future and Drake were together, performing at the Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash 20 at Philips Arena in Atlanta. The reaction to the news of Drake and Future going on a concert tour has fans hoping the duo will hit their cities.
“Everyone is so hyped about a Drake and Future tour now but 3 years ago when Drake went on tour with Future and PND no one was as hyped lol.”
“I don’t want to see Drake and Future, I NEED to see Drake and Future.”
