Canadian singer-songwriter The Weeknd is coming to Asia this year for the first time - and he's chosen the 852 as his debut city! The Hong Kong concert will take place on November 30 at Asia-World Expo.

The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, first came to public attention with his 2011 mixtape House of Balloons. His second album Beauty Behind the Madness, earned him two Grammys in 2015, while his single Earned It, led to an Oscar nod for Best Original Song.

The tour will support his critically acclaimed studio albums Beauty Behind the Madness and Starboy, and this year's EP, My Dear Meloncholy. After he plays Hong Kong, the star will perform in Bangkok, Singapore, Manila, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo.

Tickets go on sale on at 10am on August 30 from HK Ticketing, priced from HK$698 to HK$1,398.
