The Weeknd Announces Massive After Hours Til Dawn Global Tour

The singer will embark on his first ever global stadium tour.

The world has waited long enough for The Weeknd to tour his After Hours album. After postponing his original After Hours arena tour in October 2021 in order to rework the show for a larger audience, the time has finally come. Presenting The Weeknd’s massive After Hours Til Dawn summer 2022 tour, the star’s first-ever global stadium tour that will be bringing to life his last two albums — After Hours and 2022’s Dawn FM — into one massive, dynamic, and world-building show.

Kicking off in his hometown of Toronto on July 8, the slew of shows will take the “Blinding Lights” singer to iconic venues throughout Canada and the U.S. including New York’s MetLife Stadium, Chicago’s Soldier Field, Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, and many more. Doja Cat was scheduled to open for the singer on all of the dates, however pulled out from the tour in May to recover from tonsil surgery.

When The Weeknd first announced the postponement of his After Hours arena tour, he wrote on Instagram that he wanted “to do something bigger and special for you which requires special stadiums.” It appears he did just that as a press release teases the new show will be “creating worlds within worlds [...] bringing these first two pieces of his trilogy to life.”

So far, only the dates for the North American leg of the tour have been released. Subsequent dates in Mexico, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East will be announced soon.
