Today in Hip Hop News, we excitedly report that The Weeknd and Doja Cat are teaming up for a stadium tour called "After Hours Til Dawn."
The Weeknd and Doja Cat are without a doubt two of the music game's most exciting performers, consistently putting on a performance when they take the stage. Individually, both musicians have had incredible success in recent years, and together, they've had a pair of massive hits that have topped the charts.
With the huge popularity of their latest collaboration, "You Right" from Planet Her, Weeknd and Doja have officially confirmed that they will embark on a global stadium tour together, launching this summer in Weeknd's home of Toronto.
The Live Nation-organized tour was officially confirmed (March 3) and will begin off on July 8 at the Rogers Center in Toronto before reaching other renowned stadiums across North America for the first part of the tour.
Following the conclusion of this tour, which concludes on September 2 in Los Angeles, additional dates in Mexico, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East will be announced.
Along with this statement, The Weeknd disclosed that, in collaboration with the World Food Programme, he has established the XO Humanitarian Fund.
Today, the artist made a $500,000 gift to battle the worldwide hunger issue, and the World Food Programme contributed an additional $1 million.
Each ticket purchased for the After Hours Til Dawn stadium tour will give one dollar to the XO Humanitarian Fund, which will be utilized to help families and communities in Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Ukraine.
"The goal with this fund is to provide immediate life-saving support to people who are on the brink of starvation. I’m so thankful to have WFP as a partner and to further expand our reach to those who need it most," said The Weeknd about this initiative.
The general public will be able to purchase tickets on March 10 at 10 a.m. local time. If you already have tickets for After Hours' North American arena tour, a special pre-sale begins today!
