He was a mystery. Then he was Drake's protege. Soon after, he became the one-and-only The Weeknd.
The Weeknd announced his new headline world tour, The After Hours Tour, starting June 11, 2020 on the heels of his upcoming album, After Hours. The tour showcases state of the art production and one of the most innovative stage designs to date, containing the most LED lights and video for an arena show. The 57-date tour hits cities across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and France with support from Sabrina Claudio and Don Toliver in the US, and 88GLAM and Sabrina Claudio in Europe.
The Weeknd's sound has been described as hipster R&B (or PBR&B to some), and his tracks have sampled a huge range of artists from indie-rockers Beach House to R&B megastar Rihanna. His slow grooves and falsetto croon create a beautiful and sometimes creepy backdrop for what are often provocative lyrics.
The Weeknd seems a natural onstage, even when the stages he's playing are huge. Hard to believe that his 2013 album, Kiss Land, was just his second.
Though his star continues to rise, he's remained an enigmatic figure who avoids magazine and TV interviews. Fans basically have three ways to get to know him better: listen to his music, read his Twitter feed or pick up some tickets and see him in concert.
