Drake’s success within the hip-hop community has been impressive, but his most recent accomplishment might just solidify his place as the primary artist to represent our generation’s mainstream hip-hop artists.
According to Pollstar, Drake’s Summer Sixteen Tour took 11th place of highest-grossing 2016 worldwide tour, grossing $84.3 million.
This ranking places Drake significantly above Kanye West and the Saint Pablo Tour at 29th place grossing $52.8 million. According to Pollstar the Summer Sixteen Tour has sold 752,141 tickets at an average of $112 per ticket.
Regardless of whether you are a diehard Drake fan or found yourself siding with Meek Mill a few months ago, or you couldn’t care less about him, that is an impressive number of people who are willing to pay at least $100 to see Drake perform.
And yes I am very bitter that I was unable to be present at the Summer Sixteen Tour, but clearly it was a fantastic accomplishment.
