SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — While concerts don't appear to be returning to most places this year, The Weeknd is preparing to kick off his world tour at the top of 2022, with a stop in San Diego planned.

Days before he's set to perform at the 2021 Super Bowl, The Weeknd announced his "The After Hours" world tour more than a year after the release of his album, "After Hours," which has spent 45 weeks on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

The 104-date global tour will start off on Jan. 14, 2022, in Vancouver, British Columbia, before making its way through Canada to North America and then Europe. A handful of rescheduled dates from 2021 are included in the 2022 slate of stops.

San Diegans will get their chance to see the musician in action on March 13 at Pechanga Arena. Tickets for the tour will go on sale on Monday, Feb. 8 at 10 a.m.

The concerts will come nearly two years since the coronavirus pandemic shuttered large-scale gatherings, though it's unclear what the landscape for concerts will look like next year.

Members of Verizon's loyalty program, VerizonUp, will also get special access to tickets for concert stops, which will be made available closer to the date of each event.
