Drake and Future announced two summer shows at the United Center early this morning as part of their shared Summer Sixteen Tour. They'll play Chicago July 26 and 27. Tickets go on sale Friday, and according to the Tribune, they'll start at $49.50 and cost up to $179.50.

All told, the tour will cover 30+ cities and will kick off on July 20 in Austin, wrapping up in Vancouver on Sept. 17. The two rappers are touring together after releasing the mixtape What A Time To Be Alive together last September.

Technically (and strangely), this is more Drake's tour than Future's. Officially titled DRAKE: SUMMER SIXTEEN TOUR, the tour will feature Future as a "special guest."

Here's Drake's Twitter announcement of the tour:

Future hasn't posted an announcement yet, but his most recent tweet (as of 9 a.m.) was:

What a time to be alive, indeed!!!
