The Weeknd plots massive ‘After Hours’ tour, 6 Canadian dates
Only a day after revealing the title of his upcoming album, After Hours, and its self-titled single, The Weeknd has just announced a 57-date world tour.
That’s right, to promote his highly anticipated fourth studio album, the Toronto-born musician will embark on the “After Hours” tour, hitting various countries across the globe between June and November.
On June 11, the 43-date spanning North American leg of the tour kicks off in Vancouver, before concluding three months later in New York City on Sept. 3. He will headline Madison Square Garden.
Before returning to the U.K. and Europe for 14 additional shows in October, The Weeknd (born Abel Tesfaye) will play five additional shows in Canada, across four different cities: Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto and Montreal.
Joining the Call Out My Name singer on the road as special opening acts for the tour will be American singer/songwriter Sabrina Claudio and Houston, Tex.-based rapper, Don Toliver.
The Weeknd’s last studio album was the Daft Punk collaborative effort, Starboy (2016). It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Canadian Music Chart. It also spawned two top 10 singles and was certified double-platinum by the RIAA.
Back in November, the 30-year-old released two songs in the span of only two days — making it the first original content from the musician since his 2018 EP, My Dear Melancholy.
The Weeknd’s latest singles, After Hours, Heartless and Blinding Lights are now available through all major streaming platforms.
After Hours, the album, will be released worldwide on March 20.
Select ticket presales for the ‘After Hours’ tour begin next Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 10 a.m. in each local time zone.
All remaining tickets go on sale to the general public that Friday, Feb. 28 at the same time.
