The Weeknd’s Australian tour has been extended again.

The award-winning Canadian artist announced last month that he was bringing his global stadium tour to Australia and New Zealand this year. Stops in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland through November and December were initially confirmed, and now The Weeknd has added a fourth show in Melbourne due to overwhelming demand.

He’ll now perform at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium on Tuesday, December 5th. The Weeknd will be supported by special guests Mike Dean and Chxrry22 on the upcoming tour.

Tickets to the newly announced show go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, September 13th at 2pm local time. The Vodafone and Binance pre-sales begin on Tuesday, September 12th at 1pm local time.  Foxtel Rewards members can also access exclusive reserved tickets from Wednesday, September 13th at 2pm 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.
