He might be overdosed on confidence: Drake is headed to Europe next year for the “Boy Meets World Tour,” and he has tacked on a few more stops in the United Kingdom.

Drizzy recently added a show in Glasgow Jan. 25 to the original routing, and now has gigs in Leeds Feb. 9 at  and  in London Feb. 14-15.

The artist recently had to cancel a number of shows in the U.S. due to an ankle injury. He had already postponed a number of those shows to allow himself time to recuperate and fans are still waiting on new dates.

The next place to catch Drake is at  in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve.

The 2016 Soul Train awards are also set to feature Drake prominently, as the artist was nominated for 12 different categories. That show airs on BET Nov. 27.

Billy Joel can still sell tickets, in case anyone was wondering. When tickets went on sale for the re-opening Long Island’s newly renovated  they were gone almost as soon as they were available at 10 a.m.

The venue is still undergoing redevelopment after closing with a Billy Joel concert Aug. 4 last year. The upcoming gig will be the artist’s 33rd at the venue, and he sold it out nine times in 1998.

New York has had major concerns with its secondary ticketing market, so the quick purchase of tickets may be related.

You can learn more about the artist at BillyJoel.com and the venue at NassauColiseum.com.

Yes indeed will feature its full-time drummer Alan White on its upcoming Japanese tour, as he feels sufficiently recovered from back surgery.

The band has six shows lined up in the nation, four of which are at  in Tokyo. The opening weekend, Nov. 21-22, and the closing weekend on Nov. 28-29, are both at that venue. In between the band also plays  in Osaka Nov. 24 and in Nagoya at  Nov. 25.

The band is also set to headline the , which embarks on Feb. 7 from Tampa, Fla.

White had to sit out on Yes’s recent U.S. tour and Jay Schellen, formerly of Hurricane, hit the skins in his stead.

“I’m greatly looking forward to getting back on stage with my bandmates to play Yes music once again for our devoted audiences” White said.

Tickets to the Japanese gigs are on sale now and you can learn more about the band at YesWorld.com.

Prine and Isbell played together a number of times this year, including a pair of California gigs in May, so the two no doubt will draw on each other for a high-energy show.

Tickets are on sale Oct. 21 at 10 a.m. local time. The artists’ websites are JohnPrine.com, JasonIsbell.com and KaceyMusgraves.com.
