Drake comes to the big screen for a special one-night concert event, “DRAKE’S HOMECOMING: THE LOST FOOTAGE,” on Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. local time, presented by Fathom Events, SpectiCast, Rap-A-Lot Records and Young Empire Music Group.
Previously believed lost and destroyed, the footage for “DRAKE’S HOMECOMING: THE LOST FOOTAGE” was shot prior to Drake signing with Little Wayne’s Young Money (Cash Money/Universal) imprint during a live, sold-out concert at Toronto’s Sound Academy in 2009.
After its recent rediscovery, additional production and footage was added to the concert film including interviews with Rap-a-Lot Records CEO James Prince and his son Jas Prince, who is credited with the discovery of Drake and bringing him to the attention of Lil Wayne. The soundtrack includes the international smash hits, “Best I Ever Had” and “Successful.”
Tickets for “DRAKE’S HOMECOMING: THE LOST FOOTAGE,” are available at participating theater box offices and online at http://www.FathomEvents.com. The event will be presented in nearly 350 select movie theaters around the country through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
Jas Prince, CEO of Young Empire Music Group said, “When I first listened to Drake I had no idea he was on a hit show, I just fell in love with his sound and talent – it was unique and like nothing I had ever heard before. I told him during our first conversation I would make him a star. This film documents the beginning of that journey.”
