The Weeknd Breaks Major European Tour Record

The Weeknd’s “After Hours Till Dawn” tour has been raging on since early last year. He’s completed both and North American and European legs of the tour and is currently making stops in Latin America. He’s set to conclude 2023 by playing a series of dates on a new Oceanic leg of the tour. The singer achieved a number of major milestones along the way, particularly in the European leg. He’s broken various records for attendance and revenue gained at particular stops, highlighted by his breaking the attendance record for London Stadium by drawing over 80,000 spectators.

Now he’s pulled off an even more impressive accomplishment. With the European leg of his tour in the books his total gross was tallied up. When all was said and done he broke the record for the highest-grossing tour by a black artist in the continent’s history. He brought in $158.1 million across 30 shows with over 1.6 million tickets being sold. With many focusing on major tours this year from Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and Drake, it’s worth remembering just how much of a commercial force The Weeknd is.
