First world tour announced for 2022 includes extended outing in North America & Europe

Tickets on sale following his historic headlining Super Bowl performance, starting Monday, Feb. 8 (10 a.m. local time) at TheWeeknd.com/Tour

Global music superstar and Super Bowl LV halftime show headliner The Weeknd announced his 104-date global tour will kick off on Jan. 14, 2022, in Vancouver at Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena. Additional stops include Buffalo, Toronto, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Paris and Berlin, before wrapping Nov. 16 in London at The O2.

The worldwide tour announcement comes just days ahead of the multi-Platinum singer’s headlining Super Bowl performance, and also includes a handful of rescheduled dates shifting from 2021 to be a part of the “After Hours World Tour” in 2022.

With the addition of 39 new tour dates, The Weeknd will also release “The Highlights” on Friday, Feb. 5. The collection is a way to present some of The Weeknd’s most notable works in one place. While this isn’t a “Greatest Hits” album, his team said, it does provide a new listener a rich foray into some of the iconic artist’s best and favorite work.

Fans can presave and preorder the album HERE.
