Published Jul 08, 2013The Weeknd has been building up to the release of his sophomore album, Kiss Land, and now the Toronto noir & B crooner also known as Abel Tesfaye has confirmed that he will release it by the end of the summer and hit the road for a North American tour.
The tour is simply called "The Fall," although it technically begins in late summer. The trek kicks off with a two-night stand at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver. From there, Tesfaye and his band will head down in the U.S. for a string of shows before ultimately wrapping up with three consecutive hometown gigs at Toronto's Massey Hall.
According to a press release, the shows will find the Weeknd pairing "his chaotically sexy music with haunting and hypnotic visuals, making for an immersive live experience that spares none of the senses." Each show will feature opening sets from Aussie dance act Anna Lunoe and L.A. songwriter Banks.
This tour will reportedly follow the late summer release of Kiss Land via XO/Republic Records. The exact date is unconfirmed, but by the sound of things, it will be out sooner rather than later.
