Drake recently made history when his ‘It’s All a Blur Tour‘ stopped in Washington, D.C. for two sold-out concerts on July 28 and 29, earning more than $5 million in ticket sales across both nights – making it the highest grossing concert of Drake’s career — as well as the first time a rapper has earned over $5 million from a single arena concert in U.S. history.
According to Touring Data, each night banked an average of $5.032 million with an average ticket price of $293.40 and a total attendance of 34,303 people across both shows.
In reference to the success, Drizzy even alluded to the record-breaking haul during his Montreal stop while performing his 2013 hit “Started From The Bottom,” ironically highlighting how far he’s come since making only $500k a show.
With such impressive figures already under his belt, the 6 God is likely to continue at this pace and might even surpass Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Big Steppers Tour’ as the highest-grossing Hip Hop tour of all time. K. Dot broke Drake’s ‘Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour‘ record earlier this year after his 2022 trek pulled in $110.9 million from 929,000 tickets across 73 shows.
Unfortunately, the scheduled Memphis stop on August 6th is cancelled due to “logistically impossible” production demands according to FedExForum’s statement about the matter.
“Due to the magnitude of the production of the Drake concert, it is logistically impossible to bring the show as designed to the FedExForum on August 6th. Unfortunately, the show is cancelled.”
The tour resumes August 12th in Inglewood, California at KIA Forum.
