BROOKLYN (JUNE 17, 2013) – Grammy® Award-winning, multi-platinum selling, recording artist Drake will bring his WOULD YOU LIKE A TOUR? show to Barclays Center in Brooklyn on October 28. The show will also feature Grammy® Award-winning rising R&B star Miguel and special guests including rapper Future.

Tickets are also available at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center, located at 620 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, starting Saturday, June 22 at noon (if still available).

The tour announcement comes as buzz as Drake’s new album NOTHING WAS THE SAME continues to escalate since the release of the album’s first track “Started From The Bottom.” The hit single burned up the charts landing in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Drake has since released two more songs, “5AM in Toronto” and “Girls Love Beyonce,” directly to fans online via OctobersVeryOwn.net.

NOTHING WAS THE SAME follows the critically acclaimed and multi-platinum selling TAKE CARE (Young Money / Cash Money / Universal Republic), which earned Drake his first Grammy® Award for “Best Rap Album” and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in 2011. Drake’s full-length album debut, 2010’s THANK ME LATER, also bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart week of release and has been certified Platinum by the RIAA. The album earned Drake multiple Grammy® nominations, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, and Best Rap Solo performance.

Miguel hit the mainstream in 2010 with the infectious first single “All I Want Is You” from his major label debut album of the same name. The album also features "Sure Thing," which hit #1 on Billboard's Hip-Hop/R&B chart and second US #1 "Quickie." Miguel followed up on the success of his debut album with his critically-acclaimed, Grammy Award nominated, sophomore release, KALEIDOSCOPE DREAM, which features his third US #1 hit single "Adorn." In 2013 Miguel was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards. Lead single "Adorn," garnered his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and resided at #1 spot on the R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart for more than 23 weeks. He was recently the musical guest on SNL garnering rave reviews across the board and was also included as one of Time's 100 Most Influential People.
