Twin Cities fans will be among the first to see the Weeknd on his his newly announced tour, which will hit Xcel Energy Center on June 22.

The Monday night show will only be the fourth stop on the “Can’t Feel My Face” hitmaker’s After Hours Tour, which kicks off June 11 in Vancouver and will also land in Winnipeg on Jun 17. Opening acts on the tour will be Miami R&B singer Sabrina Claudio, who landed the 2018 hit “Don’t Let Me Down” with Khalid, as well as Houston rapper and Travis Scott protégé Don Toliver.

Tickets for the St. Paul date go on sale next Friday, Feb. 28, at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster and the arena box office. VIP, platinum and American Express pre-sale seats will be available Uesday. Once again, tour promoter Live Nation is not revealing ticket prices to the public ahead of time in keeping with its "dynamic pricing" practices.

Toronto native Abel Tesfaye, aka the Weeknd, finally issued details of his new album “After Hours” earlier this week. His first album since 2016’s “Starboy” will arrive March 20 and already has a good build-up in the form of first singles “Heartless” and “Blinding Lights.” He’ll add to the buzz with a March 7 appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”

This will be his second headlining show at Xcel Center, following a 2017 performance that drew 14,000 fans.
