Drake's seven-date residency kicking off tonight has resulted in The O2 Arena upgrading their name to The O3.

The Canadian rapper is hosting seven shows at London's O2 Arena, starting tonight (1 April), and the venue has celebrated his arrival by changing the name to The O3 Arena.

Replying to someone who had spotted the name change on Twitter, O2 Music wrote, "We’re following God’s Plan. Just for Drake, we’ve turned The O2 into The O3. #DrakeTheO3."

Fans have also been speculating over the possibility of Drake bringing out Future at his shows, after the rapper has been posting about being in London on his Instagram story.

Last week Drake turned up and played a 2,000 capacity afterparty show at Leicester's Club Republic after cancelling one back in 2017. He had just played the 16,000 capacity Resorts World Arena in Birmingham beforehand.

Drake plays his first of seven shows at London's O2/O3 Arena tonight (1 April), through to 11 April. Find out more.
