The Weeknd’s After Hours Til Dawn Tour Breaks Records Across Europe

    The Weeknd’s After Hours Til Dawn Tour has left a historic mark in the music industry, especially during its European leg. According to Touring Data, the tour has become “the highest-grossing tour by a Black artist in European history,” surpassing Beyoncé’s previous record.

    During the 30 overseas shows, The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel, generated an astonishing $158.1 million in revenue, selling over 1.6 million tickets. The recent concerts in France and Madrid, including Nice and Bordeaux, were all sold out, contributing around $16 million to the artist’s earnings for just four performances.

    Abel’s commitment to making a positive impact was evident when he collaborated with 35 local companies during a performance in Bogotá, Colombia, creating approximately 1,500 jobs to stimulate the local economy.

    The Weeknd’s record-breaking streak began in July when he set a new attendance record during a two-night run at London Stadium, attracting a total of 160,000 fans. Live Nation’s Touring President, Omar Al-joulani, praised the global fanbase Abel has cultivated over the years.

    In August, The Weeknd continued to break records, this time at London’s Wembley Stadium, where he sold an impressive 87,000 tickets, setting a new sales record for a traditional concert setup.

    The success of the After Hours Til Dawn Tour is a testament to The Weeknd’s undeniable talent and immense popularity. As the tour continues, with upcoming dates in Australia and New Zealand, fans can expect more memorable performances and possibly even more record-breaking moments from this Grammy Award-winning artist.
