The Weeknd announces a new 'After Hours Til Dawn' 2023 tour

Canadian singer The Weeknd has a highly loyal fanbase, and following the success of his After Hours Til Dawn US tour, the singer has decided that he wants to take it to the people of Europe and South America for a stadium tour.

Taking to Twitter, the singer posted, “LEG TWO IS HERE!! After Hours Til Dawn Tour comes to Europe and Latin America!!!” This tour will see the singer bring his US concert tour to over 10 countries, including The Netherlands, Sweden, France, Argentina, Brazil and Spain.

The tour will see the Canadian artist perform a setlist consisting of material from his fourth and fifth albums, respectively, entitled After Hours and Dawn FM. Other acts that will be accompanying him on the tour include Kaytranada and Mike Dean, both artists that he has worked extensively with.

The Weeknd’s 2020 album After Hours which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, was shrouded in controversy as it was not nominated for a Grammy award in any capacity. This caused an uproar from the industry and fans alike, who began to question the validity of the Grammys, with some even calling it corrupt.

In an interview with Billboard magazine, the singer expressed his indifference towards the Grammy’s, stating, “Look, I personally don’t care anymore. I have three Grammys, which mean nothing to me now. Obviously…It’s not like, ‘Oh, I want the GRAMMY!’ It’s just that this happened, and I’m down to get in front of the fire as long as it never happens again. I suck at giving speeches anyways. Forget awards shows.”

Irrespective of whether his 2020 album won a Grammy, The Weeknd’s music is amazing, and that is evident as his European and South American stadium dates are selling out fast. See where tickets are available for After Hours Til Dawn in the tweet below.
