The Weeknd postpones down under dates due to "unforeseen circumstances"

The Weeknd has postponed a tour of Australia and New Zealand two weeks before it was due to start, citing “unforeseen circumstances”. New dates for the shows are yet to be announced.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, we must reschedule the Australia/New Zealand tour”, reads an email from the musician that was sent to ticketholders. “New dates will be announced next year and current tickets will be valid for the new shows. Refunds will be available for those unable to attend the new dates. [I’m] deeply disappointed but can’t wait to be there with you!”

The tour’s promoter Live Nation added in a statement: “We understand fans will be disappointed, and Live Nation is focused on working with The Weeknd to secure a new tour schedule. We will make a further announcement as soon as possible”.

The first date on the antipodean leg of the tour was due to take place in Brisbane, Australia on 20 Nov, with shows running into December, ending with two nights at Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand. UK shows took place this summer.
