*Drake will hit the road for his first North American solo trek, dubbed “The Away From Home Tour,” an eco-friendly undertaking done in conjunction with Reverb – a non-profit organization that promotes environmental-friendly techniques.
The 25-city outing stretches from Apr. 6 through May 8 with feature performances from Canadian rapper/singer K-OS and the synth pop New York band Francis & The Lights.
The jaunt follows his participation in the “Young Money Presents: America’s Most Wanted Music Festival,” which was headlined by Lil Wayne.
The tour’s eco-friendly policy, dubbed the “Campus Consciousness Tour,” calls for the use of biodiesel fuel and biodegradable and recyclable products on the bus and backstage.
Drake will also showcase an “Eco-Village” with tents which will feature environmental and other socially-conscious groups educating on green technology, student carbon-offset programs and eco-friendly consumer sampling.
