The Weeknd Announces North American Stadium Tour With Doja Cat E! News UK
The Weeknd is set to tour North America with Doja Cat as part of the “After Hours Til Dawn” tour.
The ‘Save Your Tears’ hitmaker has unveiled the first leg of the world tour in support of his ‘After Hours’ and Dawn FM’ albums, which will see him and the ‘Say So’ hitmaker perform in stadiums this summer.
The ride will kick off in his hometown of Toronto on July 8 and is set to wrap September 2 in Los Angeles.
The megastar – whose real name is Abel Tesfaye – is expected to announce further dates in Mexico, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
The 32-year-old humanitarian is donating $1 from every ticket sold for the tour to the United Nations World Food Program (WFP), which he has partnered with to launch the XO Humanitarian Fund.
The Weeknd said: ‘The purpose of this fund is to provide immediate lifesaving support to people on the brink of starvation.
“I am so grateful to have WFP as a partner and to further extend our reach to those who need it most.”
The ‘Blinding Lights’ hitmaker is also pledging $500,000 of his own money to the fund.
The Weeknd and Doja released the duet “You Right” on Doja’s “Planet Her” album in 2021.
Meanwhile, the Canadian star recently announced that ‘Dawn FM’ is part of a trilogy.
The “Tears in the Club” singer appeared to reveal a third album was set to follow 2020’s “After Hours” and “Dawn FM.”
Alongside the artwork for his latest LP, which is a photo of himself, The Weeknd tweeted, “Wonder…did you know you’re experimenting with a new trilogy?”
The “Take My Breath” hitmaker has yet to provide further details, such as the three albums that will make up the trilogy.
