The Weeknd Revamps, Expands After Hours Til Dawn Tour for 2022

The 2022 After Hours Tour was previously postponed in February but saw the three-time Grammy award winner adding dates in North America and across Europe in France, Germany, Norway, Switzerland and more. The new After Hours Til Dawn Stadium Tour will feature new dates in Asia, Australia, Africa, South America and the Middle East, according to the new tour poster.

Abel Tesfaye accompanied the tour news with a video that features a brief snippet of a song from his forthcoming album, as planet Earth rotates and is illuminated by twinkling lights. “You know I love it when you’re angry,” the singer croons on the audio, which then morphs into a galactic instrumental by the video’s end.

The tour’s expansion — and rebranded name — likely serves to incorporate Tesfaye’s tentatively titled Dawn album. On the Oct. 5 episode of his Apple Music 1 radio show Memento Mori, he shared  major album updates and revealed that working on the project caused him to pause the weekly show.

“A lot has been going down, a lot of moving pieces. Been settling in a new home. Been shooting videos. Been working on pre-productions for another world. Working on music for the pre-productions for the other world. Taking time to myself so I don’t completely lose my mind. But now we’re back.” he said, adding, “I hope you had a great summer. Some exciting features coming out in the fall before the album drops. … Some Dawn updates: Album is complete. Only thing that’s missing is a couple of characters who are key to the narrative — some people that are near and dear to me, some people that inspired my life as a child and some that inspire me now. More to come in the following months.”
