Drake Announces New 2024 Tour with J. Cole: ‘It’s All a Blur Tour – Big As The What?’
Drake ’s making sure 2024 starts on the right foot, courtesy of his new It’s All a Blur tour.
Drake, 37, spent most of this year on the road with 21 Savage , but he decided he wasn’t done yet. On Monday, November 13, he announced It’s All A Blur – Big As The What? , a sequel tour that kicks off on January 18, 2024, in Denver. Joining Drake this time around is J. Cole , the rapper who helped “The 6 God” land his 13th No. 1 song on Billboard Hot 100 with their collab “First Person Shooter,” tying him with the late Michael Jackson.
This new It’s All a Blur tour will take Drake and J. Cole, 38, across the United States including the Midwest and Southern states. In February, the tour will hit Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena for the rescheduled dates from the first leg of It’s All a Blur . (Drake was initially set to perform in Music City in June, first postponing to October before pushing the show a second time.)
J. Cole will dip on the final four dates, leaving Drake to perform solo for his fans in Belmont Park, New York; State College, Pennsylvania; Sunrise, Florida; and Birmingham, Alabama. While other support acts have yet to be confirmed, fans are hoping for Drake’s 6-year-old son, Adonis, to land an opening slot to perform his first hit, “ My Man Freestyle ,” on the road.

The first It’s All a Blur tour commemorated Her Loss , the joint album between 31-year-old 21 Savage and Drake. On Friday, November 10, their work earned them a handful of Grammy nominations. “Rich Flex” was nominated for Best Rap Performance, while “Spin Bout U” was nominated for Best Melodic Rap Performance. “Rich Flex” was nominated for Best Rap Song — a songwriters’ category — and Her Loss scored a nomination for Best Rap Album.
Drake’s most recent solo album, For All The Dogs , was released on October 6, after the September 15 cut-off date for 2024 Grammys eligibility.
Her Loss will compete against Killer Mike ’s Michael , Nas ’s King’s Disease III , Travis Scott ’s Utopia and Metro Boomin ’s Heroes & Villains . Considering Drake’s rocky relationship with the Grammys , it’s unclear whether he will attend the 2024 ceremony.
Drake was nominated for Best Rap Performance (“Way 2 Sexy”) and Best Rap Album (Certified Lover Boy) in 2022 but withdrew himself from consideration after previously hinting that there’s a “disconnect” between the music that makes an impact and the music that wins awards. Kendrick Lamar and B aby Keem won Best Rap Performance for “Family Ties” at the 2022 ceremony, while Tyler, The Creator won Best Rap Album for Call Me If You Get Lost.

Blur (formed in 1989) is an English Brit-pop and alternative rock band who stormed to musical success in the ‘90s with their traditional English style and ideology, hailing from London, England, UK.
Prior to the formation of Blur, vocalist/keyboardist Damon Albarn performed in the group Circus alongside drummer Dave Rowntree, which later enlisted the help of guitarist Graham Coxon. Shortly after, whilst the members were studying at London’s Goldsmiths College, the name was changed to Seymour, and Alex James joined on bass to complete the line-up. After recording a number of demos and live performances in 1989, the band caught the attention of Andy Ross of Food Records who subsequently offered to sign the band provided they changed their name.
Blur was ultimately born and began touring in 1990 in support of the Cramps, later releasing the single “She’s So High”. The band’s sound was distinctly of the Madchester genre, drawing influences from the soaring psychedelic pop of The Stone Roses combined with the guitar drive of the Who. After releasing the No. eight charting single “There’s No Other Way” and the No. 24 single “Bang”, Blur released their debut album “Leisure” in 1991.
Following the release, the band embarked on a two-month tour of the States after which Albarn and the band aimed to move away from the sound and scene of their debut, which proved problematic. “Pop Music” was the band’s first single to step into the shoes of English pop however failed to find an audience in either the UK or the U.S. Blur’s sophomore album “Modern Life Is Rubbish”, produced by Stephen Street, was issued in 1992 to generally good reviews.
“Modern Life Is Rubbish”, whilst failing to achieve its intended success, paved the way for Blur’s breakthrough album “Parklife”. Released in 1994, “Parklife” shot to the top of the UK charts, aided by the lead single “Boys & Girls” and considerable BBC radio airplay. The album remained in the charts for a total of 90 weeks, earned rave reviews from the musical press, and has long been regarded as one of Britpops’ defining albums.
During this time Blur developed a musical rivalry with Manchester-based band Oasis, marked by both band’s releasing new singles on the same day. Blur’s “Country House” ultimately outsold Oasis’ “Roll With It”, however Blur’s subsequent album “The Great Escape” failed to compete with Oasis’ sophomore “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?”. 1995’s “The Great Escape” once again earned positive reviews and topped the UK charts, however with the popularity of Oasis in the U.S., Blur were increasingly losing relevancy and public support.
After a year or so out of the spotlight, with influences taken from American indie-rock, Blur reincarnated themselves and released a self-titled album in 1997. Despite the UK No. 1 single “Beetlebum”, the album failed to reignite the popularity of its predecessors, however did find popularity in the U.S. With the significant success of the single “Song 2” in the States, hype for the band crossed the Atlantic and Blur enjoyed a resurgence of success in Britain. The album “13” followed in 1999 after which Albarn focussed on the hip-hop side-project Gorillaz with cartoonist Jamie Hewlett.
Graham Coxon departed the group ahead of the band’s seventh studio album “Think Tank”, which marked the end of Blur until a reunion tour in 2009. The documentary “No Distance Left to Run” was released in January 2010, followed by a new recording for Record Store Day entitled “Fool’s Day” also in 2010.
Blur, icons of the 90's Britpop revolution have enjoyed one of the most critically and commercially celebrated careers of any British artist. Their music has been the soundtrack to a generation and fans old and new continue to sell out their tours in mass force to see Damon Albarn and co perform the classic songs.
From the offset, the audience are excited and remain in a sense of hushed anticipation before the iconic group begin their show. The lights go down and deafening cheers ring out to the opening bars of 'Boys & Girls'. It is a risky move opening with one of your most prolific hits but Blur simply energise the crowd as they remain engaged with the show throughout. Albarn thanks them briefly between tracks but with seven albums to fit into a 20 song setlist, time is of the essence.
Luckily all the big hitters are included, a mass sing/clap along to 'Country House' nearly rips the roof off the Civic Hall before 'Parklife' causes mass jostling within the crowd. It is the anthemic introduction to 'Song 2' which receives perhaps the greatest reaction of the evening. Blur's music does not seem to age and the quartet proves why they are considered titans of Britpop.
Report as inappropriate
Blur as a band is a British icon, which enjoyed most of their success in the 90s. Legends from the Britpop revolution, Blur are a wonder to watch live. Their music redefined a generation, and they continue to be one of the most successful British rock bands today. When Blur rocked on to stage to screams of ‘Woo Hoo’ by the excited crowd, it felt like an incredible moment and memento to British music history. Blur opened with ‘Song 2’, to the crowd’s absolute delight. They rocked the stage, strumming on guitars and bass and slamming on drums. Although Blur opened with arguably their most prolific and, best, hit, the rest of the show by no means felt like a let-down after such a fantastic opening. If anything, the show went from strength to strength as the band missed up their set list, interspersing slower songs with more up tempo tracks. ‘Coffee and TV’ and ‘Girls and Boys’ also had massive crowd reactions and were two highlights of the night. The crowd begged for an encore at the end and Blur obeyed, coming back to perform ‘Song 2’ one last time for the exultant crowd.
It was amazing! I loved every song they played, and I can´t stop being excited, yet. I think they really know how to make a show and how to make people feel the music they are playing, they know that for many people that went to see them, there are songs that have listend for so many years, and the fact that after so much time, they were listening Blur playing it alive, listening many people singing the lyrics at the same time, and they are there, living that moment, with the people that must be there with them, it´s something amazing that words simply cannot discribe. That´s the best part of every concert, and is something Blur really knew how to gave us.
Blur. Ah, the first thing that comes to mind is Beetlebum. Blur has a song for each mood you're in, however, be warned there is a bit of grungy, dive-bar listening type of feel.
I've had the great fortune of seeing Blur once, and it was beyond memorable. One moment you are jumping up and down, moshing, the next you and the entire crowd are singing along to Song 2. Some artists don't sound anything like their album music, but for Blur it's so point on and more! Let's just say I lost my voice for 2 days after the concert.
So grab your 90's clothes - necklace choker, ripped jeans, & simple tee and kick it with Blur - promise you won't regret!
Best band I've ever seen live, we didn't have the best seats but it was still an incredible experience. Genuinely made me cry it was so amazing. I'm so upset there aren't anymore UK dates as if there where id be booking them all.
Amazing! They're the best!

The Internet Reacts to Drake and J. Cole Skipping Canada On Their 2024 Tour
The closest Canadian date is Buffalo on Feb. 27.
Drake is heading back on tour, this time around with J. Cole for 22 shows, but not one of them is in his hometown.
The pair announced today dates for the It's All A Blur Tour – Big As The What? tour headlining with J Cole. It starts Jan 18-19 in Denver at Ball Arena, before making stops in Nashville, Columbus, Buffalo, and many more cities wrapping up in Birmingham.
With the tour dates being announced for select cities, some were surprised to not see his hometown of Toronto or any other Canadian dates on the 2024 tour. Drake did play in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal on the 2023 leg of It's All A Blur.

"L city list" commented one fan on Champagne Papi's IG post.
Others, like artist Mouraine, flashed some Canadian flags in the hopes of getting some dates added for the north.
"No Canada?" Also asked another commenter.
"Drake can u come to Vancouver," said one.
The mood was similar on Drizzy's X feed.
"Bruh who put these random ass stops together," went one well-hearted reply.
"This can't be the whole tour list," added another.
North America still has it better than the rest of the world. Europe and Asia have yet to see any dates on Drake's ongoing tour.
Other comments include: the inevitably high ticket prices, no Cali, no Chicago, and questions about whether we'll see "In the Morning" live.

Toronto fans feeling left out can cross the border to nearby Buffalo on Feb. 27. Popular Instagram account Toronto Rappers openly wondered in the comments if Benny the Butcher might make an appearance in the Griselda home base.
The tour also does cities like Columbus and Nashville a solid, since those shows on the It's All A Blur tour were postponed and never rescheduled.
Here's the list of full dates to Drake and J. Cole's It's All A Blur Tour – Big As The What? tour for 2024.

Andrew Scott Doesn’t Want to Play Purely Antagonistic Roles After Bond Villain Performance in ‘Spectre’: I ‘Wasn’t That Good in It’

Andrew Scott is not particularly interested in playing an antagonist similar to his James Bond villain C from 2015’s “ Spectre ,” starring Daniel Craig. In a recent interview with British GQ , the actor expressed his desire to continue playing more nuanced roles.
“If I’m honest, it’s not a territory that I feel like I would want to go over again. Now I know who I am a little bit more, I feel like the work that I’m just interested in doing is more in the grey areas,” Scott said. “I suppose it’s just that I didn’t think… I just maybe wasn’t that good in it.”
“I was looking forward to it enormously,” said Brosnan. “I thought it was too long. The story was kind of weak — it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did.”
While several of Scott’s past projects have involved him playing supporting roles to bigger stars like Craig, Benedict Cumberbatch in “ Sherlock ” and Phoebe Waller-Bridge in “Fleabag,” he takes center stage in Andrew Haigh’s “ All of Us Strangers ,” premiering Dec. 22. The film follows Scott’s Adam as he enters a relationship with Harry, portrayed by Paul Mescal. Switching between reality and the supernatural, Adam returns to his childhood home to find that his parents alive and well, despite their supposed deaths when he was 12.
Scott discussed how filming “All of Us Strangers” was “gratifying and cathartic” because he revisited several of his own experiences. Specifically, in the scene where Adam comes out to his family, Scott said he found himself reflecting on his own experience coming out to his parents.

Blur bassist says Hong Kong barred indie band from ending live tour in city
Posted: November 7, 2023 | Last updated: November 7, 2023
The bassist for Blur has said that the British indie band was unable to end their current live tour in Hong Kong this year, as the authorities denied them a visa.
During a Monday BBC Radio 6 show, bassist Alex James said that the band had hoped to finish their live tour in Hong Kong: “[W]e were gonna finish it off in Hong Kong, which we thought would be brilliant because ‘The Magic Whip’ – the album prior to ‘Ballad of Darren’ – was all recorded in Hong Kong… but then, apparently, the Chinese government consider us to be bad actors, so we’re not allowed back in Hong Kong sadly.”

The Immigration Department did not respond to enquires on Tuesday.
It comes as the government seeks to attract talent , relaunch the city after the Covid-19 pandemic, and roll out the “ Happy Hong Kong ” and a “ Night Vibes ” campaign to boost the flailing economy.
Among the international acts that have embarked on Asian tours recently, whilst appearing to skip Hong Kong, are Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Harry Styles and Lewis Capaldi.
The last gig of 2023 listed on Blur’s website is on November 26 in Argentina.
The band were last in Hong Kong in 2015.

A History of Drake Tours – Tickets Sold, Money Earned
When it comes to hip-hop tours , no one puts more butts in seats more than Aubrey Drake Graham.
The 6 God has headlined or co-headlined 10 tours (excluding his six-date promotional Jungle Tour in 2015) so far in his illustrious career, a time spanning form 2010 to 2023. According to a Billboard feature published on Nov. 2 revealing the Top 20 Grossing Hip-Hop Acts of All Time , Drake is No. 1 on the list, grossing $472.9 million in just over 300 tour shows performed. Those shows have been attended by 3.9 million raving fans. For his first recorded show, at Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Penn., on April 9, 2010, Drake earned $191,000. Since then, Drizzy has leveled up. His biggest shows have raked in $13.5 million, including multiple dates at the O2 Arena in London in 2019.
The only thing that's stopped Drake from going on the road is the pandemic. Following his Assassination Vacation Tour in 2019, Drake returned to the stage and spent three months in 2023 on his widely popular It's All a Blur Tour with 21 Savage, during which he dropped his latest album For All the Dogs . One tour date earned the Drake the title of the first rapper to surpass $5 million for a single U.S. show. On Monday (Nov. 13), Drake announced his latest tour, It's All a Blur Tour - Big As The What? , with J. Cole, which will find Aubrey taking on another 22 shows beginning in January of 2024 with his "First Person Shooter" collaborator.
With Aubrey ready to set sail again, XXL puts together a history of Drake's past tours, including the total number of tickets sold and the money brought in on each cross-country jaunt.
