Press Release: Drake White Rocks New York City And Boston With Sold-Out Shows

NASHVILLE, TN (March 27, 2017) – Drake White brought his high-energy SPARK TOUR 2017 to sold-out crowds at New York City’s Gramercy Theater on Thursday (3/24) and Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on Friday (3/25). Fans in the Northeast embraced his raucous 90-minute set. Alongside his band The Big Fire, the foot-stomping performer proved once again why Rolling Stone claimed he is “one of the genre’s most captivating live entertainers."
In New York, Drake performed tunes from his debut album SPARK and had the packed audience singing along the entire time to Top 15 single “Livin’ the Dream,” “Heartbeat,” “Back to Free,” “I Need Real” and his current single “Makin’ Me Look Good Again.” Highlights of the nights came with a show-stopping cover of George Michael’s “Faith” and the closing number “It Feels Good.”
Feeling the room's energy even after the lights came up, Drake came back out for an impromptu encore featuring his soulful “Waitin’ on the Whiskey to Work.” It was a perfect ending for his loyal following, the Firestarters, who waited hours in the cold for a prime spot next to the stage to see the magic up close.
AXS said of the performer following the show, “Drake White wasn't born a star. But he was born with a whiskey-soaked voice the monumental size of which can crumble mountains, part the Red Sea and send even the most high of dignitaries to their knees.”
Drake treks south over the next two months with a stop at the Tortuga Music Festival in Ft. Lauderdale on April 9 before the SPARK TOUR 2017 resumes with back-to-back sold-out shows in Drake’s hometown of Nashville on April 12 and 13 at Exit/In.  For additional information and tour dates, visit

About Laura Lou

Laura Lou Journalist

Beginning about age 13, music always been my “safe place”, my “escape”, it became a part of who I am. My background includes being a photographer/journalist for newspapers, magazines and radio stations and more recently I have been an artist manager. What I continue to strive to learn is, what is important to the fans/readers? I find that the answer is always that they want to feel close to the artist they are supporting. The human contact that we all need is something that I want to deliver to anyone that happens to read something I write or see a photograph I shoot. It is important to me to provide that experience, because I am, after all, still always a “fan” and that giddy 13-year-old girl is simply amazed! I never imagined that my passion and love for music would lead me where I am today! I use the hashtag #iamtheluckiestgirliknow because I cannot believe how blessed I am! I’m excited to see “what happens next” and take you all along with me! This is going to be amazing…
