Drake Goes Green with Headlining Tour

Now that Lil Wayne is off the road for the next year, Drake will fill in for his Young Money boss by launching his own headlining tour.

“The Away From Home Tour” will travel across the United States, stopping at 15 college campuses along the way. Drake’s first solo trek begins April 6 in Charleston, Ill., wrapping May 8 in Plymouth, N.H.

The “Successful” rapper is partnering with Reverb, a non-profit, eco-friendly organization, to promote environmental issues. As part of “going green,” Drizzy’s tour bus will be equipped with biodiesel fuel and eco-village tents will be set up to educate concertgoers at each show.

Canadian rapper k-os and synthpop band Francis and the Lights have been tapped as opening acts.
