Drake announces first Apollo Theater concert coming in November

On Tuesday (Oct. 4), the Certified Lover Boy announced a Nov. 11 concert at the legendary Harlem venue in partnership with SiriusXM.

The show will be Drake’s first performance at the storied Apollo Theater. A website for the event encourages fans to scan a QR code and listen to Sound 42, the rapper’s radio platform, on the SXM app anytime from now until 11 p.m. EST on Oct. 26. Fans should then watch for a pop-up message on how to enter for a chance to win tickets.

Drake launched Sound 42 in 2021 as a 24-hour “radio experience reflecting his interests in music and culture from all walks of life,” according to its website. The channel’s flagship show is OVO Sound Radio, which the rapper co-founded alongside Oliver El-Khatib and Noah “40” Shebib in 2015. In 2019, the platform moved from Apple Music to SiriusXM.

The forthcoming concert will be an intimate affair for Drake and concertgoers as the Apollo Theater’s capacity is just over 1,500 seats.

SiriusXM Radio has hosted numerous exclusive shows at the famed Harlem venue as part of its Small Stage Series. They have featured artists like Alicia Keys, H.E.R. and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

SiriusXM has also hosted many legendary pop and rock acts at the Apollo Theater for exclusive concerts over the years — icons such as Paul McCartney in 2010, Bruce Springsteen in 2012, and Metallica in 2013.
