DENVER — The Weeknd has announced new opening acts for his global stadium tour.
R&B soul singer Snoh Aalegra, Canadian electronic artist Kaytranada and DJ-producer Mike Dean will join select dates of the "After Hours Til Dawn Tour."
Singer and rapper Doja Cat announced in May that she will leave The Weeknd's tour so she can recover from surgery on her tonsils.
“Unfortunately I have to have surgery on my tonsils asap,” tweeted Doja Cat. “The surgery is routine but the recovery is going to take awhile due to swelling. That means I have to cancel my festival run this summer as well as The Weeknd tour. I feel horrible about this but can't wait for this to heal and get back to making music and create an experience for y'all.”
In previous tweets, Doja Cat said her tonsils became infected after drinking wine and vaping following a cut.
This 2022 stadium tour marks the first time The Weeknd will be touring his album "After Hours" whose 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.”
Tour organizers said The Weeknd's stadium tour "will see his most ambitious production to date reflecting the creative journey that continues to unfold for both these albums, creating worlds within worlds as we have all been watching unfold in various television performances, music videos and short films bringing these first two pieces of his trilogy to life."
