The Weeknd has been on the road for the last several months, making stops across the Unites States, Europe, Canada and South America. With an extensive touring schedule, the Weeknd is still able to maintain his passion for philanthropy, by donating to causes he supports, even while on tour. The Weekend recently donated $100,000 to the Suubi Health Center, a maternity and children’s medical center in Budondo, Uganda. Just last year, The Weeknd donated $50,000 to help establish an Ethiopian Studies Program at the University of Toronto and the artist donated $250,000 to the Black Lives Matter Movement.
With only a handful of dates remaining until the ‘Starboy: Legend of the Fall’ Tour wraps up, The Weeknd is set to play festivals within the next few weeks such as Bonarroo in Tennessee, FIB Benicassim in Spain and Longitude Festival in Dublin, Ireland.For a list of remaining dates and ticket info, visit Ticketmaster.
