(UPDATE 7/20/16) Two of the biggest names in rap music will begin an epic jaunt through the U.S. and Canada tonight. Drake and Future are hitting the tour bus for the 55-date "Summer Sixteen" Tour, which launches at Frank Erwin Center in Austin. The tandem is finding a massive demand for tickets on the resale market, and fans will be paying big prices to see them live through mid-October.

According to TicketIQ, the average price for Drake and Future tickets across the entire tour is $282.59. The duo will play their most expensive shows at Madison Square Garden on August 5, AmericanAirlines Arena on August 30 and TD Garden on August 10. Each of the three gigs is averaging over $500, with the cheapest tickets listed from $130 and up.

Still, each has an average price just under the $200 plateau, making Drake and Future's co-headlining run one of the most expensive tours of the summer.
