The Weeknd Announces Massive Tour With Stop in New Orleans This Summer

Alt-R&B/pop singer/songwriter The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesafaye, is bringing his ballads and dance moves to the Smoothie King Center on July 23, 2020.


The Weeknd made his breakthrough in the early 2010s after uploading videos anonymously to YouTube, and also released several mixtapes in 2011 including House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence. His dark wave-style of R&B grew massive mainstream popularity and thus, The Weeknd was born. 

With a seemingly never-ending discography going back to early 2010s, The Weeknd is on the cusp of a new album. He’s since released 3 different singles from said album, “Heartless,” “Blinding Lights,” and “After Hours.” The three take his music in a more upbeat disco-funk vibe, one that is similar to his massive hit “I Can’t Feel My Face.” 

Joining The Weeknd on his After Hours Tour is Sabrina Claudio and Don Toliver. It’s been quite some time since he’s been in New Orleans, his last visit having been in 2016 at Voodoo Music + Arts Experience.
