On a cold Saturday night in February, things soon heat up when Drake’s “Boy Meets World Tour” hits Manchester (or “Galchester” as he calls it halfway through the show due to his love of Manchester’s ladies).

However, the latter does get a little annoying at times when he keeps pointing out various people in the crowd and what they are wearing, saying things like “Girl in the River Island top I see you,” rather than just simply carrying on through the remaining half...
