Today, Diamond certified and award-winning artist The Weeknd announced new dates for the expansion of his After Hours Til Dawn Tour with special guests Mike Dean and Chxrry22. The next leg of the tour will kick off Monday, November 20 in Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium, with stops across Australia and New Zealand.
The completely sold out global stadium run has been an incredible success, breaking attendance records and grossing more than $350 million dollars in revenue to date. The tour recently broke London Stadium’s attendance record with 160,000 concertgoers across two nights. The Weeknd also just wrapped with his largest headline show to date, breaking Wembley Stadium’s record for sales with a traditional concert set up with the stage at one end with 87,000 tickets sold. In Milan, The Weeknd sold over 159,000 tickets, making him the first artist to sell out two nights at Ippodromo La Maura and his shows in Paris marked the biggest sales for Stade de France this year, totaling to 151,000 across the two dates. In addition, The Weeknd’s shows in Nice, France sold 70,000 tickets across two shows – the highest in the city’s history.

United Nations World Food Programme Goodwill Ambassador Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye will again contribute funds from this next leg of the tour to the XO Humanitarian Fund, which supports the organization’s response to the unprecedented global food crisis. Over $1 million was raised for the fund via ticket sales during the recently wrapped European leg of the tour.
The fund also raised money during the North American leg of the tour through ticket sales, proceeds from an exclusive tour t-shirt, and a $500,000 donation directly from The Weeknd. The Weeknd’s corporate partners, tour venues, World Food Program USA board of directors and supporters also stepped up to contribute, as well as tour sponsor Binance, which contributed US$2 million to the fund. The first grant of $2 million will help provide emergency food and nutrition assistance to the most food-insecure regions of Ethiopia.
The tour celebrates The Weeknd’s 2020 album After Hours (it’s hit single “Blinding Lights” was named the new No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 song of all time, surpassing Chubby Checker’s 1960 hit “The Twist”), as well as his critically-acclaimed album Dawn FM, which was released January 2022.
The After Hours Til Dawn Tour is brought to you by Binance, revolutionizing the live entertainment industry with cutting-edge Web 3.0 technology. Binance users in Australia and New Zealand will have access to a special ticket presale for select shows, while supplies last. As a token of appreciation, eligible ticket holders in these countries will also receive limited-edition souvenir NFTs.
