The Weeknd has postponed his tour once again, pushing the dates back to summer 2022 - and here's why.
The Weeknd’s tour was first rescheduled to early 2022, but the ‘Blinding Lights’ singer has postponed his dates yet again, moving them back to later in the year.
Fans will now have to wait until this summer to see the star on stage again and will receive refunds for the tickets already bought.

New dates are yet to be announced, but fans want to know why The Weeknd postponed his ‘After Hours til Dawn’ tour.
Why did the Weeknd postpone his tour again?
The Weeknd announced on 18 October his plans to move his tour dates back, telling fans the change is ‘due to constraints of arenas’.
Instead, the 31-year-old wants to head on a stadium tour to give people an even bigger show.
He said in a statement: “The tour dates are moving and will commence in the summer of 2022.
“Due to constraints of arenas and the demand for more shows I want to do something bigger and special for you which requires stadiums.

“Current tickets will be refunded automatically and all ticket holders will be given priority to buy tickets for the stadium shows when they go on sale.”
He added: “New dates forthcoming.”
The Weeknd has since confirmed his new album 'Dawn FM', which is set to drop on January 7 and is an album that he previously told GQ, is one “[he’s] always wanted to make.”
Fans are divided over the star’s decision to change to a stadium tour, expecting prices of tickets to soar even more.
He’s already given a hint at what to expect from his new era with new single ‘Moth to a Flame’ with Swedish House Mafia.
