27-City Trip to Support 'Take Care' Will Also Feature J. Cole, Waka Flocka Flame and Others

D rake is hitting the road for a 27-city, cross country tour of U.S. amphitheaters in support of his chart-topping album "Take Care." Dubbed "The Club Paradise Tour," Drake is bringing J. Cole, Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz and French Montana along for the ride that starts May 7 in Concord, Calif.

"I feel like this tour is coming at the perfect time," Drake announced on Thursday. "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."

Tickets go on sale March 23, but Citi card users already have access to presale tickets here.

The "Paradise" tour follows Drake's sold out European arena and U.S. college tours. "Take Care," Drake's sophomore album, debuted atop the Billboard 200 in November and has sold over 1.5 million copies in the U.S.
