If you haven’t already figured out that 2017 is going to be The Weeknd’s year, his new tour announcement might do a good job in letting you know. The “Starboy” star has announced the first leg of his massive “Starboy: Legend of the Fall” world tour that is set to kick off in Vancouver at the end of April.
Touted as “Phase One,” the first leg will span across North America, hitting various cities in the United States and Canada until wrapping up the run in Cincinnati on June 9th. There’s not many places The Weeknd doesn’t step foot in during this tour, so the second leg will most likely take place overseas when it gets scheduled for the summer or fall. Either way, given its dramatic and intriguing tour title, the production and theme of the shows are going to be quite the spectacle to watch. You can check out the dates on his website.
What’s even better than the tour announcement though is what’s written on the flyer for the tour: “Surprise special guests to be announced.” So, not only are we getting The Weeknd live, but it looks like more than one support artist is going to be joining him to share the stage. Though nothing is hinted at or confirmed yet, maybe one of the musicians he’ll be bringing along will be electronic artist Cashmere Cat, considering he lent vocals to Cashmere’s single, “Wild Love,” a few months back. April is a long time away, but luckily we’ll have The Weeknd’s new album, Starboy, to keep us company when it comes out on November 25th.
