The Weeknd announces March UK arena tour

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Singer The Weeknd has announced an arena tour in support of his third LP "Starboy" for March 2017.

The 26-year-old Canadian star - whose real name is Abel Tesfaye - is to head out on an arena tour in promotion of his forthcoming record "Starboy" in March, reported Contactmusic.

The "Can Feel My Face" hitmaker will bring his frantic live show to London's The O2 on March 7 and March 8, and will wrap up the small run of shows at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, north England, on March 14.

Fans of the R&B singer will no doubt hear songs from his new album, which will be released on November 25, at the shows.

The record's title track features electronic music legends

Daft Punk, which could mean the "Get Lucky" hitmakers may make a guest appearance on the tour.

The last time The Weeknd played the UK was at Radio 1's Big Weekend back in May.
