Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Let us, for a moment, put our dreams of a Drake and Kanye album away for a moment; here in Houston we have bigger Drake news to deal with.

Out of nowhere, much like his new mixtape, comes news that Drake is hitting the circular stage at the Arena Theatre, and tickets are onsale...now?

Happy Friday, Houston!

REWIND: Drake's Surprise Album Raises His Game Further Still

This would mark Drizzy's first solo show in Houston since Houston Appreciation Weekend and his super-intimate show over at Warehouse Live. Between then and now was the massive shindig up in The Woodlands with his mentor, buddy and fellow member of the "We're Not Happy With Cash Money Records Club" Lil' Wayne.

Is Houston Appreciation Weekend coming early this year? Will Houston ever get its own "[time] in [city]" track from the man who considers this one of his second homes?

Also, are you ready to pony up at least $124.50 per ticket (if there are even any still available)? Will the Arena Theatre stage spin? And seriously, a Drake x Kanye album?

Good luck getting your tickets, everyone. (Tip: The presale code is OVO.)

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
