The Rogers Center says all tickets will be honored for the new date and apologizes for the inconvenience, noting that they understand how disappointing this is.
The Weeknd’s seventh tour, titled After Hours Til Dawn, was scheduled to kick off Friday night in his hometown, Rogers Centre.
The Toronto date was one of only two set for Canada.
The tour was delayed twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so dates in Edmonton, Winnipeg and Montreal had to be taken off the schedule.
The Weeknd will travel to the United States next week before returning to Canada to play at BC Place in Vancouver on August 25.
The announcement comes as Canadian spectators had to register or print their tickets, as a widespread network outage at Rogers Communications blocked mobile internet access for several customers.
The widespread outage has affected other shows, for example Scotiabank Arena in Toronto has suggested people attending tonight’s Roger Waters show save their mobile tickets to their Apple Wallet or Google Pay, depending on the phone model they have. they dispose.
