By all accounts Drizzy had a tremendous 2016.  As he continues his run into 2017, it has just been announced that Drake and Future’s Summer Sixteen Tour is the highest grossing hip-hop tour ever, amassing $85 million USD with a total of 54 shows from July-October. Very impressive numbers for just a few months of work. It’s possible this number could have reached the $100 million USD mark if it were not for the ankle injury that led to the cancellation of tour dates. Kanye West and Jay Z’s Watch The Throne Tour previously held the top spot at $75 million USD. Drake will be starting the European leg of the tour in Amsterdam on January 21st. The European tour has been renamed Boy Meets World Tour.
