Fans can’t get enough of hip-hop’s golden child. Before the curtains were raised for the second night of Drake’s Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour, fans chatted with MTV News about what exactly brought them out to Miami’s James L. Knight Center on Tuesday night.
“Oh my God,” Ymaday Marichal said. “I’ve been waiting for this moment since summer.”
Marichal’s friend, Lindsey Perez, explained the measures the pair took to ensure they had seats at the sold-out show. “We bought the tickets, like, as soon as possible. I had to wake up at 9 to get the tickets and, really, I’m hoping that he does really good,” she said.
Light Dreams is Drake’s second headlining trek, after his extended Away From Home Tour earlier this year. And fans were clear about what they were hoping his set list would look like.
“Personally, I can relate to Drake the most — his music, everything he’s doing right now,” said fan Luis Delvalle. “He’s on top of the hip-hop game … Drizzy’s the man.” Delvalle went on, “Honestly, I’m a fan of Drake everything … I want him to do his whole album tonight,” he said, referring to the rapper’s successful Thank Me Later debut.
Other fans expressed similar sentiments, praising Drake’s overall style.
“I just really wanted to come out. I like his music. I like his collabs a lot,” Josh Matthews told us. “And I just like the way he puts it together. The show tonight is going to be amazing.”
