Drake has regained his title for highest-grossing rap tour ever after his ‘It’s All a Blur’ Tour surpassed Kendrick Lamar’s 2022 ‘Big Steppers’ Tour with $129.7 million in earnings.
Seeing as Drake just announced another leg of the ‘It’s All a Blur’ Tour, the record he just set will continue to improve. The ‘It’s All a Blur’ Tour has a total of 72 shows scheduled, only 30 of which have been accounted for so far. Experts expect the tour’s revenue to more than double once the numbers from the other 43 shows are counted.
Kendrick Lamar previously held the record for highest-grossing rap tour after his ‘Big Steppers’ Tour in 2022, which grossed $110.9 million. The ‘Big Steppers’ Tour lasted from July through September with 73 shows to celebrate Kendrick’s 5th studio album, ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.’
With Drake’s tour revenue far surpassing Kendrick’s without even being entirely added up, it is safe to say that Drake will likely hold the title for highest-grossing rap tour for awhile. Especially considering the tour recently got an extension to it for 2024 with J. Cole.
Drake also released yet another new project last night at midnight with ‘For All the Dogs Scary Hours Edition’ being dropped on all streaming platforms. The new project gives the newest ‘For All the Dogs’ album a new life with 6 brand new songs added to the tracklist. Drake continuing to produce and drop new work only seems like another reason for his touring numbers to continue to rise.
This upcoming January, Drake and J. Cole will hit the road again and continue the ‘It’s All a Blur’ tour with their special edition, ‘Big As the What?’ Tour.
