Grammy Award-winning and platinum-selling recording artist Drake today announced that he will be bringing his The Boy Meets World Tour to Europe in early 2017, with a date at Sheffield Arena.

The Canadian rapper, who has had a string of massive hits including Hotline Bling and Energy, is appearing at Sheffield Arena on Friday, February 17.

Weirdly, he's rumoured to be a fan of Sheffield Wednesday (although the owl tattoo on his back is the logo of his clothing brand OVOXO), so maybe he'll pop over to Hillsborough while he's here...

Tickets for the tour go on general sale on Friday 14th October from www.livenation.co.uk

Drake recently became the first artist to break one billion streams on Apple Music with his latest album Views, holding the record for most number one hits on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Chart in the USA and selling out arenas around the globe.

His promoters say: "Drake commands massive influence in the hip-hop and contemporary music space as he continues to create and dominate on a worldwide scale."
