Drake Launches UK Tour In London At O2 Arena

The 'Take Care' rapper began his 11-date jaunt across the country this week with a huge London show.

Drake kicked off his headlining UK tour last night (26th March) with a crowd-pleasing performance at the O2 Arena in London.

The 'Miss Me' rapper took to the stage to perform tracks from his 2010 album 'Thank Me Later' and last year's 'Take Care' to the sold-out UK arena.

Drake led the crowd through all of his biggest hits to date, including 'Lord Knows' and 'Over' , before rounding off the opening show with a rendition of his 2011 hit single 'Headlines'.

The O2 Arena concert was notable attended by the likes of Florence Welch, The X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos and 'One Shot' boy band JLS.

The Canadian rapper is expected to premiere the music video for his Rihanna collaboration 'Take Care' sometime soon, after delaying the video's unveiling last Friday (23rd March).

Drake's UK tour continues tonight (27th March) with a second consecutive performance at London's O2 Arena.
