Drake & Future's 'Summer Sixteen' Tour Is Highest Grossing Hip Hop Tour In History
The "Summer Sixteen" is making Drake and Future win all 2017.
These guys can't stop winning. According to Poll Star Pro, Drake and Future's "Summer Sixteen" tour is now the high-grossing hip hop tour of all time.
Between the months of July 2016 and October 2016, both rappers toured the country and performed in one sold out show after the next. In total, they hit up 54 tour dates and made a reported $85 million in ticket sales. Drizzy dethroned Jay Z and Kanye West’s "Watch The Throne" tour, which brought in $75 million from October 2011 to June 2012.
This feat is quite major when you consider the fact that Drake had to cancel the remainder of the tour because of an ankle injury. “Drake suffered a severe ankle injury during the tour which he did his best to power through. By doing this, he made his injury worse," the spokesperson previously told PEOPLE.
Nevertheless, the 6id God and Hendrick still had music history, in the end. Props to them!
