The Canadian singer Abel Makkonen Tesfaye more commonly known by his stage name ‘The Weeknd’, is a singer-songwriter and producer known for his R&B, Pop, and Electronic music. He began his tour named “After Hours til Dawn” on July 14, 2022, in Philadelphia.

The tour will consist of 74 concerts in total. 21 across North America and 30 in Europe in 2022, it was recently publicized that the tour will continue in South America and Oceania in mid to late 2023, across 7 countries including Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Australia, and New Zealand. The tour’s setlist will consist of different songs from records and several from his two new albums “After Hours” and “Dawn FM” which the tour is promoting.

“I don’t listen to The Weeknds’ music, but I’ll admit he has a few good songs.” Said Noah Rosen, a Junior at Coral Glades High. “Starboy is his best song in my opinion, it’s unique.”

The hit single “Blinding Lights” reached the No. 1 song on Billboard’s “Greatest Songs of All Time Hot 100” in 2021. In 2022 received the Diamond certification from the “Recording Industry Association of America” for selling 10 million units.

He also received multiple Grammy’s beforehand as well as many awards for songs such as “Earned It, Starboy, and Often.”

The Weeknd featured guests Mike Dean, Kaytranada, and Snoh Aalegra in the months June-August and the tour continues in late 2023 in the upcoming months of November and December, in this period Ethiopian singer Chxrry22 will join Mike Dean and The Weeknd himself in stage.

“I went to the tour last August and I thought that it was the most intense show I’ve ever been in and I’d go again if I could.” Says Daniela Rubio, Senior at Coral Glades High School who is a big fan of The Weekend.

All in all, the After Hours tour excites many people across the globe and allows millions to enjoy his music live.
