Phase One of the tour kicked off on February 17 in Stockholm, Sweden and wrapped on June 9 in Cincinnati, Ohio. VARIETY named The Weeknd “a bonafide pop star and an undeniable influence on his contemporaries,” while BRITISH GQ hailed, “this was without-doubt one of the best shows we’ve seen from a mega star in a seriously long time.” The Weeknd released his fourth full length studio album, Starboy, on Nov. 25, 2016 through XO/Republic Records to rave reviews. The Starboy album has since been streamed over 5 million times and certified 2x-platinum, while the title track ‘Starboy’ is now 5x-platinum.
Starting off his career anonymously, The Weeknd first broke into the music scene with the 2011 mixtape House of Balloons followed by studio album Kiss Land in 2013 and the widely recognized Beauty Behind the Madness that earned him two Grammy Awards in 2015, an RIAA triple-platinum certification for cumulative sales in excess of 3 million, 16 RIAA certifications from tracks alone with “The Hills” [7x-platinum], “Can’t Feel My Face” [5x-platinum], “Often” [2x-platinum], “In The Night” [platinum], and “Acquainted” [platinum]. “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)” even garnered The Weeknd his first ever Academy Award nomination in the category of “Best Original Song.” Late last year, The Weeknd released his fourth full-length album “Starboy” [2x-platinum] which quickly rose to #1 in 90 countries, sold over one million albums globally and broke the global streaming record all in less than one week.
