Global superstar The Weeknd broke the record for highest attendance across two nights with 160,000 at London Stadium.
The Weeknd also set the record for the highest single-night attendance for any show at the stadium with 80,000 fans.
The R&B star created the record with his sold-out back-to-back shows on July 7th and 8th as part of his After Hours Til Dawn Tour. Kaytranada and Mike Dean joined on both nights.
According to promoter Live Nation, the tour has already sold more than 2 million tickets for its European and forthcoming South America and Mexico dates – and 200,000 for both England and France.
The sold-out 2022 North American leg of the stadium tour grossed more than $148 million dollars. The global tour has now grossed over $350 million dollars to date.
“It’s incredible to see The Weeknd hit this milestone less than halfway through his massive sold-out European run,” Omar Al-joulani, President, Touring, Live Nation, said in an interview with Variety. “This historic moment in London shows the global fanbase he has cultivated over the years.”
The tour celebrates The Weeknd’s 2020 album After Hours, which includes his blockbuster hit single “Blinding Lights” as well as his critically-acclaimed album Dawn FM, which was released January 2022.
