The Weeknd has unveiled the official tour dates for his long-postponed North American After Hours Til Dawn Tour, which is set to kick off this summer.
The chart-topper’s first-ever stadium tour begins on July 8 with a hometown show at Toronto’s Rogers Centre before heading to 17 additional destinations including New York, Philadelphia, Miami, Boston, Las Vegas and San Francisco, with a final stop at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium on September 2. Dates for Mexico, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa and the Middle East will be announced in the coming weeks.
Doja Cat, who recently enlisted The Weeknd for “You Right” on Planet Her, will accompany the Dawn FM vocalist on the tour.

Tickets for the tour will be available for purchase beginning March 10 at 10 a.m. local time on the official tour website. Fans who purchased tickets to The Weeknd’s canceled After Hours arena tour will be given a special presale access code on Friday, March 4.
Additionally, Abel has partnered with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to launch the XO Humanitarian Fund that will contribute $1 USD from each tour ticket sold in North America to the organization, which combats global hunger. The Weeknd will also make a donation of $500,000 USD and the World Food Program has pledged $1 million USD to the fund.
“The goal with this fund is to provide immediate life-saving support to people who are on the brink of starvation. I’m so thankful to have WFP as a partner and to further expand our reach to those who need it most,” The Weeknd said in a statement.
