The Weeknd announces After Hours Tour
He hits the road this summer.
With the release date for his After Hours album newly revealed, the Weeknd has now also announced his forthcoming North American and European tour of the same name. The “Blinding Lights” singer is scheduled to hit the road for an extensive 57-date tour, which will kick off a few months after the release of his album.
The After Hours Tour will launch this June, hitting North American cities such as Chicago, Toronto, Brooklyn, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, New Orleans, San Diego, Cleveland, Los Angeles and more, before moving onto its European leg. Running from October through mid-November, the Weeknd will perform in Scotland, Holland, England, Germany and Belgium, finally wrapping up in Paris on Nov. 12.
The Weeknd will joined by singer / songwriter Sabrina Claudio, rapper Don Toliver and the Canadian hip hop duo 88GLAM. The After Hours Tour marks the crooner’s first North American string of shows since supporting his Starboy album back in 2017. Two years ago, he also brought a mini tour to several stops in Asia.
The Weeknd began his After Hours rollout last November, with the release of his two singles, “Heartless” and “Blinding Lights.” However, it wasn’t until earlier this month that he announced his forthcoming project’s name. This week, he also revealed After Hours’ release date, cover art and dropped the album’s title track.
After Hours will arrive as the Weeknd’s fourth studio album, serving as the follow-up to his 2018 My Dear Melancholy, EP. The record will also mark his first full-length album since 2016’s Starboy, which saw appearances from Daft Punk, Lana Del Ray, Kendrick Lamar and Future.
On Tuesday (Feb. 18), Metro Boomin included After Hours in a round-up list of his current projects. The mega-producer is credited as a co-producer on “Heartless” and is expected to produce other songs on the album as well. Metro and the Weeknd last worked together on Future’s 2016 single “Low Life” and on the Weeknd’s Starboy record in the song “Six Feet Under.”
After Hours is expected to arrive March 20.
