The Weeknd is making a huge change to his 2022 After Hours tour.

On Monday, the "Blinding Lights" singer took to Twitter to explain that the After Hours tour -- which was previously rescheduled three separate times due to the pandemic -- is getting a major update.

The tour, which was last scheduled to launch in June of 2020, is now set to relaunch in January of next year with larger shows and added stadiums across the world.

"The tour dates are moving and will commence in the summer of 2022," the 31-year-old wrote along with new imagery that revealed the updated set of shows will be called the After Hours Til Dawn Stadium Tour. "Due to the constraints of arenas and the demand for more shows I want to do something bigger and special for you which requires more stadiums."

While The Weeknd hasn’t announced his newly rescheduled dates just yet, he explains on social media that they’re “forthcoming.”

“Due to constraints of arenas and the demand for more shows I want to do something bigger and special for you which requires stadiums,” he wrote.

“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.

The Weeknd accompanied the news with a video that features a brief snippet of a song from his forthcoming album.
