The Weeknd is coming to Rogers Arena during his first-ever world tour on April 25.
The Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer emerged from obscurity in 2011 through his anonymous YouTube account. His debut mixtape House of Balloons caught the attention of another famous Canadian – Drake invited The Weeknd to perform at his first two OVO festivals and enlisted the young singer to work on his album Take Care.
The Weeknd started doing his own studio albums two years later. His second album Beauty Behind the Madness earned him two Grammy Awards, and RIAA triple-platinum certification for more than $3 million in sales, and 16 RIAA certifications from his tracks alone.
On November 25, The Weeknd will release his fourth album, Starboy. His world tour by the same name will start a few months after in Sweden.
