The Weeknd recently announced that the next leg of his Starboy: Legend of the Fall 2017 world tour would arrive in Australia. Now, the details, venues and dates have been revealed. Abel Tesfaye’s first ever visit to Australia and New Zealand will commence in Auckland on November 29, before visiting Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
Both French Montana and Nav will be coming along for the ride, as support for all dates.
The tour is in support of his chart-topping fourth LP Starboy, which came out last November to critical acclaim. Previously, Tesfaye had found early online fame with anonymous mixtapes and a compilation album Trilogy, before releasing two incredible chart-topping albums, 2015’s Beauty Behind The Madness and Starboy. He’s enjoyed mega chart-topping hit after hit, including Often, The Hills, Can’t Feel My Face, Starboy, Earned It and I Feel It Coming, picking up two Grammys along the way as well.
Tickets go on sale on Friday June 30 at 3pm local time, with a 48-hour Telstra pre-sale from Monday, 26 at midday local time – more details here.
