Drake and Future are coming to St. Paul

You've called "Hotline Bling" — now it's time to see Drake in the flesh.

You've called "Hotline Bling" — now it's time to see Drake in the flesh.

Drake may have started from the bottom (not really), but he's reached the pinnacle of the Twin Cities concert scene — really!

The Canadian-born rap superstar announced plans Monday for a joint tour with fellow rap hitmaker Future. Their 32-date Summer Sixteen Tour will hit St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center on July 24. Tickets — $47-$127 —go on sale Friday, April 29, via Ticketmaster and the Xcel box office.

Drake — who scored massive 2015 hits with "Hotline Bling" and "Jumpman" (feat. Future) — will be touring in support of Views from the 6, his fourth full-length set to drop Friday. Future — who will also appear May 29 at Rhymesayers Entertainment's Soundset Festival — will be supporting EVOL, his fourth album that arrived in February. 

The rhymin' buddies are currently dominating the Billboard rap charts.

Drake headlined Xcel back in 2013, a show our reviewer described as visually stunning, occasionally corny, and always strikingly earnest. Future opened that gig, as did R&B phenom Miguel.
