Put to rest the months of rumors about Drake possibly or possibly not coming to Save Mart Center — the heartthrob rapper/singer is performing March 8 and his eager fans can get tickets soon, the arena announced this morning.
Tickets cost $39.75, $59.75 and $79.75 and go on sale at noon Friday at Ticketmaster outlets and the Save Mart Center box office. There’s a pre-sale for California State University, Fresno students beginning at 10 a.m. Tuesday, only at the arena’s box office.
It was a month before that when rumors started to swirl about Drake coming to Save Mart Center. He announced, then pushed back, his Club Paradise tour. Then he announced dates for the tour, but no details emerged from his camp about tickets.
Up until a few days ago, the online rumors were flying in both directions: that Drake wasn’t coming to Fresno anymore. Or that he was, but tickets were either already sold out or cost more than $700.
None of that, as we now know, is true. And that’s good news to Drake’s adoring fans — a large chunk of whom are women who appreciate his mellow hip-hop and melodic hooks. Some of them even remember Drake from his previous life as an entertainer, playing Jimmy on the teen TV melodrama, “Degrassi: The Next Generation.”
