Two years after his After Hours album dropped, the Toronto pop star plans to hit the road
The Weeknd is banking on arena concerts returning in early 2022.
The Toronto pop superstar has rescheduled his After Hours tour (again) after cancelling and rescheduling due to COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021.
The 104-date global tour is now set to take place throughout most of 2022 and 39 more dates have been added, including a fourth hometown show at Scotiabank Arena on April 11.
The After Hours album came out in March 2020 and the subsequent tour was supposed to feature a stage set with the “most LED lights and video” ever seen in an arena show.
Despite joining the venerated group of Grammy-snubbed artists like Prince and Mariah Carey, The Weeknd is keeping up the promotional momentum during COVID-19.
He’ll perform at the Super Bowl half-time show on February 7 and is dropping a compilation album called The Highlights (that he says is not a greatest hits collection) on February 5.
Tickets go on sale February 8 at 10 am via theweeknd.com/tour.
The Toronto tour dates are below:
February 1 – Toronto, ON at Scotiabank Arena
February 2 – Toronto, ON at Scotiabank Arena
April 10 – Toronto, ON at Scotiabank Arena
April 11 – Toronto, ON at Scotiabank Arena
