In a highly anticipated event, Drake kicked off his It’s All A Blur Tour on Wednesday night at the iconic United Center in Chicago. The sporting venue, known for hosting major events, set the stage for an unforgettable night of hip-hop entertainment. Joining Drake on this tour is 21 Savage, with whom he collaborated on the successful “Her Loss” album released last fall.
As fans eagerly awaited the opening night, they couldn’t help but notice the captivating decorations adorning the United Center. Among them stood a remarkable statue honoring the late Virgil Abloh, a native of Rockford and Chicago, IL. Abloh, a fashion industry legend, tragically passed away at the age of 41 in the fall of 2021, after battling a rare form of cancer.
Known as the creative director of Louis Vuitton and the founder of Off-White, Abloh made an indelible mark on the world of fashion. His innovative designs and visionary approach continue to inspire artists and fashion enthusiasts alike. The inclusion of the Virgil Abloh statue inside the United Center pays homage to his profound impact and celebrates his connection to the city.
Drake’s It’s All A Blur Tour promises an extraordinary experience for fans, combining incredible performances with memorable merchandise. Last week, Drake gave fans a glimpse of the exclusive tour merchandise, which will be available at various tour dates. With this tour’s unforgettable opening night and the presence of the Virgil Abloh statue, it’s clear that Drake is setting the stage for an exceptional musical journey.
