The release date wasn't the only nugget Drake revealed during his performance -- the Toronto-raised MC also performed a new track from "Thank Me Later" titled "Fireworks."
So far, Drake's only released one single from the set, a track titled "Over," which is currently No. 13 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and No. 22 on the Hot 100. A song titled "Shut It Down," featuring The-Dream, leaked on the internet last month.
The "Away From Home Tour," Drake's first North American solo trek, runs from April 6 through May 8 and features performances from Canadian rapper/singer K-OS and synth pop New York band Francis & The Lights.
