The Weeknd is bringing his global stadium tour to Australia and New Zealand this year.

The award-winning Canadian artist has expanded his worldwide trek to include stops in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland through November and December (see full dates below).

The Weeknd will be supported by special guests Mike Dean and Chxrry22 on the upcoming tour.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 1st at staggered times – Melbourne from 10am, Brisbane from 11am, and Sydney from 12pm.

Vodafone customers can access a pre-sale on Friday, August 25th at staggered times – Melbourne from 19am, Brisbane from 11am, and Sydney from 12pm. And Foxtel Rewards members can also access an exclusive pre-sale on Friday, September 1st at 10am local time.

Before reaching Australia and New Zealand, The Weeknd’s global stadium run has regularly been shattering records. The tour recently broke London Stadium’s attendance record thanks to 160,000 fans attending across two nights.

In France, The Weeknd’s shows in Nice, which sold 70,000 tickets across two shows, became the highest in the city’s history, while he became the first artist to sell out two nights at Milan’s Ippodromo La Maura in Italy.

A United Nations World Food Programme Goodwill Ambassador, The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – will again contribute funds from this new leg of his tour to the XO Humanitarian Fund, which supports the organisation’s response to the unprecedented global food crisis.

The Weeknd’s tour belatedly celebrates his 2020 album, After Hours, as well as his 2022 album, Dawn FM, both of which topped the albums charts in Australia and New Zealand.
