After finishing the first leg of his Away From Home tour, Drake announced a number of new dates to extend the traveling show. The Canadian rapper has started the second leg of his tour on May 17 at Ogden Theater in Denver.

Unlike previous dates which only listed live concerts across North America, this string of new dates will include Drake's live performances across the pond. He will rock several major cities in Europe, ranging from Manchester, London, Paris as well as Amsterdam and open for Jay-Z on June 7 and 9 in the United Kingdom. Additionally, he will fly to Canada to hold concerts in the country.

The first leg of Drake's tour was an eco-friendly college tour. It was kicked off on April 6 and finished on May 8. He showcased several new materials from his upcoming album "Thank Me Later" with K-OS and Francis & The Lights as supporting acts.

In another related news, Drake has announced the third single of his June 15 release. It's called "Miss Me" and has rap mogul Lil Wayne on the hook. On top of that, Drake has added new verses to Alicia Keys' single "Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)" and the remixed track has hit the web.
