Western New York Get Ready, Because Drake Is Coming To Buffalo
Buffalo and Western New York had a nearly perfect string of concerts, shows, and events come through the 716.
Whether it's a good comedy show or a fantastic concert, you can always find something fun and exciting to do in Western New York.
2023 saw Kevin Hart, Patti Labelle, Pitbull, 50 Cent, Bell Biv DeVoe, Post Malone, Ludacris, Sommore, KC & The Sunshine Band, Jodeci, Chubby Checker, Salt-N-Pepa, Katt Williams, Rod Wave, and countless more come to town and the year isn't over with yet.
For as good as 2023's concert season is, the lineup for 2024 is looking even better, thanks to a new concert announcement that was just issued.
Buffalo, It's Time To Get Ready For Drake
Drake is one of the biggest names in the music business and one of the most successful hip-hop artists in the world; after selling more than 170 million records, he has just announced that he's bringing his talents to the 716 to put on a show.
Drizzy, whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham, has wrapped up his North American It's All a Blur Tour featuring 21 Savage, and now he's decided to head back out on the road, and this time, he's going to swing by the 716.
The It's All a Blur Tour marked Drake's return to headlining shows, which hadn't happened since 2018's Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour, and took him to 21 cities over four months.
This Isn't Drake's First Time Performing in Buffalo
Champagne Papi's connection to Western New York is pretty well documented, and this show isn't the first time Drizzy has blessed Buffalo with his presence on stage.
