Drake three new dates to his UK arena tour in March 2014.

The Canadian rapper, who released his new album 'Nothing Was The Same' earlier this year, will now play 11 shows on the tour, adding extra gigs in London, Birmingham and Manchester after tickets went on sale earlier today (November1). Starting in Manchester on March 11, the tour will now end in London on March 26. The Weeknd will support on all dates.

The UK dates will come off the back of Drake's huge 'Would You Like A Tour?' dates in North America. The US leg of the tour, which sees Miguel and Future support, got off to a rocky start though when a planned gig in Philadelphia on October 19 was cancelled an hour after it was due to start. Gig-goers had already been admitted to the 20,000-capacity Wells Fargo Centre when they were informed that Drake would not be performing that night.

A statement from the venue explained: "Due to the elaborate nature of tonight's show and an unexpected technical issue, Drake's 'Would You Like A Tour?' concert at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia has been postponed until Wednesday, December 18."

'Nothing Was The Same' came out on September 24 and debuted at Number One on the US Billboard 200 albums chart and at Number Two on the UK's Official Albums Chart – Drake's highest position yet in the UK.

Drake will play:

Manchester Phones 4u Arena (March 11/12)
Sheffield Motorpoint Arena (14)
Glasgow The Hydro (15)
Nottingham Capital FM Arena (16)
Birmingham NIA (20/21)
Liverpool Echo Arena (22)
London O2 Arena (24/25/26)
