Drake’s Summer Sixteen Tour Was Highest-Grossing Hip Hop Tour Ever

Toronto rap superstar, Drake has shattered is for the highest-grossing Hip Hop tour for his Summer Sixteen Tour with Future.

Drake grossed $84.3 million over 56 shows in 38 cities between July 20 and October 8, according to numbers from Pollstar. The average show on the tour drew a crowd of 19,793 fans who paid an average ticket price of $112.08. In total, there were 752,141 tickets sold.

The numbers would’ve been higher if not for an ankle injury that sidelined Drake from the last six shows of the tour.

Despite breaking the all-time record for Hip Hop, Drizzy just missed cracking the Top 10 out of all genres for 2016, coming in at #11. Beyoncé came in at #2 for 2016 by grossing $256.2 million with her Formation Tour’s 49 shows, while Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band took the top spot with a tour that grossed $268.3 million over 76 shows.

Kanye West’s Saint Pablo Tour was the second-highest grossing Hip Hop tour of 2016, pulling in $52.8 million over 41 shows to land at the 29 spot.

Kanye had previously held the record with Jay Z for their Watch The Throne Tour over 2011 and 2012.

Drake’s now prepping to head back on road for his European tour, which kicks off in Amsterdam on January 21 and ends in Cologne on March 16.

Drake’s promoted the upcoming tour by saying “special guests” will be announced, although Young Thug has strongly hinted at his own inclusion on Instagram.

eNEWS: Beyonce reportedly calls Kim Kardashian & Kanye “pathetic & talentless.”

  

Back in November, Kanye went off on one of his rants during the Sacramento stop of the “Saint Pablo” tour, and called out Jay Z & Beyonce for not having talked on the phone yet. Well it’s being believed that Kanye was referencing the fact that when Kim got robbed in Paris, Hov or Bey didn’t show their support or even check up on her with a simple phone call.
Now fast forward to today, and Radar Online is reporting that Beyonce is getting her revenge for his Ye’s outcry on stage last month. According to today’s report, Kim has since tried to mend their relationship with Beyoncé & Jay Z, but Queen Bey ain’t having it.

“Beyonce flipped out on Kim when Kim called her to try and soothe tensions after Kanye’s hospitalization. Basically she told Kim to never, ever, contact her or her husband again and said stuff like she thought that the two of them are made for each other because they are both talentless and pathetic!” – RadarOnline 
Radar also reports that Kanye & Kim felt awful about going off on Hov & Bey, so they wanted to try one last time to make things better, and mailed Bey and Jay invites to the Kardashian’s holiday party last week. But the source claims, “The invite was returned to Kim and Kanye’s house with ‘Return To Sender’ written on the envelope!”
Again, who knows the true accuracy behind this report, but sure is interesting to think about, and it does kinda add up & make sense. Read the full report here
