Following on the heels of the conclusion of the North American leg of The Club Paradise Tour, Drake will head to Europe, marking Drake’s first foray back into the European markets after his inaugural European headline tour, the bestselling Light Dreams & Nightmares Tour, in January of 2011. Featuring Drake complete with his full band, the European leg of The Club ParadiseTour will make stops at arenas and theatres throughout the United Kingdom and Western Europe, beginning in Dublin, Ireland on March 24, 2012 at the 02 Arena, concluding on April 25, 2012 at the Nottingham Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England.

Released in November 2011, Drake’s second studio album Take Care debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 chart at #1 and was the biggest first-week Soundscan tally of Drake’s career, with over 630,000 units sold. The eagerly anticipated album was the third highest selling debut of 2011, clocking in behind Lady Gaga’s Born This Way (1.1 million sold) and label president and mentor Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV (964,000), which Drake also appeared. Take Care arrived to a chorus of acclaim from critics and consumers alike with Rolling Stoneraving that Drake “seamlessly blends those genres (Pop, R&B, Rap) in fluid, rich tracks.”, and New York Times anointing Drake as “hip-hop’s current center of gravity”. 2012 The Club Paradise Tour North American Dates: Date City/State Venue 2/14/2012 Miami, FL BankUnited Center 2/15/2012 Gainesville, FL Stephen C.
