The Weeknd has become one of the biggest pop stars in the world over the last few years with his albums After Hours (which contained the smash hits "Blinding Lights" and "Save Your Tears") and Dawn FM, the 2022 project that just might be his masterpiece. There were plans for a massive, hundred-plus date world tour that the pandemic botched at least twice, but hope springs eternal: today, The Weeknd has shared the first leg of his After Hours Til Dawn tour, a more manageable 17-dates spanning North America this summer. Joining him on the dates as a special guest is none other than Doja Cat, who shares a hit with The Weeknd in "You Right."
Tickets for the shows go on sale here Thursday, March 10 at 10 AM local time. Ticketholders for The Weeknd's canceled shows will have access to a special presale starting tomorrow, March 4. $1 from the sale of each ticket will go to the XO Humanitarian Fund, a new philanthropic endeavor from Abel Tesfaye "to support the U.N. World Food Programme’s critical food assistance to communities on the brink of starvation, in countries like Ethiopia, Madagascar and Yemen." Tefaye will contribute $500,000 of his own money to the fund on top of a $1 million donation from World Food Program USA.
