Over the course of 2019 and 2020, Drake will perform at least five shows at Vegas’ XS Night Club as part of a new partnership with Wynn Las Vegas.

The next two dates are scheduled for May 4th and May 18th.

The residency will provide fans a rare opportunity to see Drake perform in a more intimate setting than has been the case in recent years.

The XS Night Club has a capacity of about 4,800.

“Vegas! When I came back, I thought it’d be back at T-Mobile Arena or some [stuff]. But I’ll be back here at XS all year. You’ll have a lotta chances to see me,” he said, sending the audience into a frenzy over the news. “I make time to make that money!”

Drake made news during the Grammy Awards telecast on Feb. 10 with what was interpreted as an anti-Grammy Award message after winning Best Song for “God’s Plan.”

“I want to take this opportunity while I’m up here to just talk to all the kids that are watching this, aspiring to do music,” Drake said. “All my peers that make music from their heart that do things pure and tell the truth, I wanna let you know we’re playing in an opinion-based sport not a factual-based sport. So it’s not the NBA where at the end of the year you’re holding a trophy because you made the right decisions or won the games … Look, if there’s people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain, in the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don’t need this right here. I promise you, you already won.”

…Producers cut to commercial before he was able to finish.
