Drake's "Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour" Comes to a Close

Last month, Drake surpassed The Beatles for holding the most Billboard Hot 100 top 10 records in a single year. His feature on Bad Bunny's "MIA" landed him his 12th top 10 in 2018, topping the Beatles' record of 11 in 1964. "MIA" also marked his 32nd top 10 overall, the most achieved by any solo male artist, and the third overall following Madonna and The Beatles, respectively.
Drake's domination extends beyond the charts and crystallizes on the road. His "Aubrey and the Three Migos" tour just wrapped up its 55th show in Atlanta last night. Of those 55, Drake sold out 7 back-to-back nights in New York, and another 7 in Los Angeles. JEEZ.
Watch his team surprise him on stage last night as he said some closing words:
Though his most recent studio album, Scorpion, is still charting and breaking records of its own, Drake announced plans to go straight back to working on his next:
"Tour is over...but I promise you, it's nights like this that make me love what I do. After this, I don't know how long its gonna take me, but I'm gonna work on the best album you've ever heard, and I'm gonna come back to Atlanta and perform it for y'all"
While the numbers are still being crunched, the Migos-assisted tour has grossed an average of 5 million USD a night, expected to top his last "Boy Meets World Tour," which raked in a total revenue of 55 million USD.
That's a lot of bank. But you gotta spend some to make some... and Drake's team certainly spent some. If you haven't caught a glimpse yet, the tour featured over-the-top production features including a transformative LED stage floor, drone shows, and a flying Ferrari.
Drake and his production team sought to break new ground when it came to live shows and the fan experience. The basketball court-inspired stage design allowed Drake to get up close and personal with fans on all sides of the venue. The show's "halftime" intermission actually did transform the stage into a basketball court, where Drake invited fans to participate in a free throw shoot-out with prize giveaways each night.

Accompanying the mega-hit "In My Feelings," the stage transformed to a massive iPhone display projecting an Instagram feed scrolling through viral dance videos to the song. When the Lil Baby-featured "Yes Indeed" came on, a yellow Ferrari LaFerrari - which is mentioned in the song - began floating over the crowd and around the venue. It all sounds insane, so watch the tour's production team explain how they pulled off these impressive stunts:

It seems as though with every project, album, and tour, Drake sets out to one-up his last effort. After all, who would've thought anything would top his 2017 OVO Fest stage design, which featured a life-sized replica of Toronto's CN Tower. As Drake continues to skyrocket towards superstardom, so do all his accompanying efforts.
As Aubrey mentioned himself, tour may be over, but that doesn't mean he'll be gone for long. As an artist on the cusp of breaking all chart records and going down in history as one of the world's largest superstars, we shouldn't expect him to start slowing down anytime soon.
