The Weeknd’s After Hours Til Dawn Tour is proving to be a massive success.

The chart-topping singer has grossed more than $350 million so far on his worldwide tour, according to a press release. The sold-out 2022 North American leg of his stadium tour brought in $148 million. As he embarks on the tour's second leg across Europe and Latin America, The Weeknd has now surpassed the $350 million mark.

The Canadian singer also broke London Stadium's attendance record with 160,000 concertgoers across two nights. The two shows, which took place on July 7 and 8, featured Kaytranada and Mike Dean as support. Despite facing some tough competition with the likes of Beyoncé, Bad Bunny and Taylor Swift dominating ticket sales, The Weeknd's $350 million victory makes After Hours Til Dawn the fourth highest-grossing tour of the 2020s so far, inching out Ed Sheeran. Elton John's five-year-long farewell tour, which just ended in Sweden, takes the crown not just for the highest-grossing tour of the decade, but of all time with an adjusted gross of nearly a billion dollars.

The Weeknd's second leg begins today in Manchester and will continue with shows in Brussels, Barcelona, Milan, Paris, and more. His Latin American run will start in the fall with shows in Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and more before ending on Oct. 25 in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Aside from touring, The Weeknd has also been pushing one of his newer projects, the controversial HBO series The Idol. The singer plays Tedros, a self-help guru and cult leader opposite aspiring pop idol, Jocelyn, played by Lily-Rose Depp. He recently hinted that the show will return for a second season, contrary to reports that indicate it might be canceled due to its negative reviews. "The finale. Grateful to share this moment with you all as the season comes to an end," he wrote on Instagram ahead of the show's season finale. "Continue to push the vision no matter how bumpy the journey. Jocelyn Forever."
