UPDATE: More dates have been added to New York, Los Angeles, Washington, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Oakland, and Vancouver. The new shows are included in the list below.

EARLIER: Drake will release his next album, View, on Friday, and ahead of the collection, he’s already announced plans for a summer tour with Future. (The two released the collaborative album What a Time to Be Alive last year.)

The dates will kick off July 20 in Austin, Texas, and run through September with stops in cities like Chicago, New York, Nashville, Toronto, Los Angeles, and Vancouver. Tickets go on sale Friday. The bill also promises fellow OVO labelmates Roy Woods and DVSN, and other “special guests.”

Drake announced that he would tour in support of a forthcoming collection in March during a surprise set at the Fader Fort at SXSW. At the time he told the crowd, “Views From the 6 coming in how many weeks? I hope you enjoy that s—.”

Most recently, Drake released “Pop Style” featuring Kanye West and Jay Z, “One Dance” featuring Wizkid and Kyla, and the official version of “Controlla” featuring Popcaan, which had been floating around the internet. “Summer Sixteen,” for which the tour is named, debuted in January.
