(AllHipHop News) Drake has announced tour dates for his 2012 Club Paradise Tour, which kicks off on Valentines Day 2012.
The Club Paradise Tour starts off in Miami, FL and ends in San Diego, CA and will feature A$AP Rocky, along with a host of other artists throughout the tour.
Drake, who is promoting his new album Take Care, will hit 17 different cities, with the tour rapping up the second week of March.
"I spent a lot of time out there [in Toronto]; that's what this album is about," Drake told MTV News. "That's what I'm gonna showcase. It's the same thing with the tour: I wanna bring Kendrick, I wanna bring A$AP, those are guys that I love. It has nothing to do with people on my label," he explained.
The Young Money/Cash Money Records artist wanted to make this tour more intimate as opposed to performing in large stadiums, in hopes of giving back to the fans that have supported him from his earliest days.
