The Weeknd announces 2022 After Hours Tour
The Weeknd’s postponed After Hours Tour will kick off next January.
Though the Coronavirus pandemic prevented him from touring his award-winning album After Hours last year, The Weeknd will make up for lost time and hit the road on a mega world tour in 2022. The Canadian-born star announced his After Hours Tour on Wednesday (Feb. 3) and unveiled its North American and world dates.
According to The Weeknd’s post, the tour kicks off next January in Vancouver, BC. The Weeknd will then go on to stop in multiple U.S. cities before traveling to Europe in September and will finally wrap things up at the O2 in London on Nov. 16.
The announcement arrives a few days before The Weeknd will take the stage at the Super Bowl as the Halftime Show headliner. According to Billboard, the singer spent $7 million of his own money to “make this Halftime Show be what he envisioned.” So, the performance surely won’t disappoint. A collection album called The Highlights is also being “curated for the Super Bowl” and will be made available on Feb. 5.
While The Weeknd is still receiving praise for After Hours, he recently revealed that he’s already working on the March album’s follow-up.
“I have been more inspired and creative during the pandemic than I might normally be while on the road,” he told TMRW about his next project. “The pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement and the tensions of the election have mostly created a sense of gratitude for what I have and closeness with the people near me.”
The star also reflected on his No. 1-debuting album After Hours and his career.
“I was laser focused back then and I’m laser focused right now. This has been the story of my 20’s.” he said. “I feel like I spent the last 10 years creating a sound and most of my career, I’ve either been running away from it or duplicating it. After Hours was the perfect piece of art for me to show my tenure in the industry.”
See The Weeknd’s post and his After Hours Tour dates below. Tickets for the tour will go on sale on Feb. 8 at 10 a.m. local time on his official tour site. According to the site, tickets purchased for The Weeknd’s canceled 2020 tour will be honored for the new string of dates.
