The Weeknd Breaks London Stadium Record

Canadian recording artist, The Weeknd has broken a record over the weekend at an overseas venue.

According to Variety, the man born Abel Makkonen Tesfaye has broken a record at London Stadium for having the highest amount of people to watch him perform over two nights. This took place last week on Friday, July 7, and Saturday, July 8 when he drew 160,000 fans to watch his show over the two nights as part of his After Hours Till Dawn Tour. The tour is very successful as the promoter, Live Nation, has stated that his tour has already sold more than 2 million tickets for the European part of it as well as the upcoming South America and Mexico section of the tour. And also 200,000 for both England and France. This is on top of his North American portion of the tour which has grossed more than $148 million. The tour has now brought in over $350 million.

Omar Al-joulani, Live Nation’s president of touring said, “It’s incredible to see the Weeknd hit this milestone less than halfway through his massive sold-out European run. This historic moment in London shows the global fanbase he has cultivated over the years.”

The Weeknd will continue touring as the After Hours Til Dawn Tour will be heading to Brussels, Belgium at King Baudouin Stadium before it goes to Barcelona, Milan, Paris, and several more places. It’s not gonna stop there as more dates will be added. The “Earned It” crooner is also heading to Latin America where he is slated to perform his music in places like Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and more. As of now, he is scheduled to end this tour on October 25 at Estadio Akron in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The Weeknd has also been making waves with his HBO show, “The Idol” which has caused controversy based on several shocking scenes that have captivated audiences watching it.
