Seriously: Drake Will Play Houston Again May 24

What wasn't happening is apparently happening again. A few months back following the release of Drake's If You're Reading This It's Too Late album, the Arena Theatre posted that the Toronto rapper was going to perform at the venue on May 17. That date was determined to be false according to sources, prompting the theater to issue refunds and there hasn't been word of another Drake show coming to town since.

Until today. The rapper decided to announce via Instagram that he, along with Plutonian and former "Would You Like a Tour"-mate Future, are hitting the road again for six North American dates.

The tour, dubbed the "Jungle Tour" after Drake's short film and woozy IYRTITL slow jam, will kick off in Houston on May 24 -- ironically a week after the bogus Arena Theater date.

Drake may want to hit the road as quickly as possible to try and forget about that kiss Madonna laid on him at Coachella over the weekend.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. this Saturday, April 18 via Ticketmaster.
