How to Get Tickets to See the Weeknd in DC

We're so excited, we can't feel our face.

Abél Makonnen Tesfaye a.k.a. the Weeknd.

The Weeknd just announced a concert on May 18 at the Verizon Center as part of his first global tour “Starboy: Legend of the Fall.” Whether you’re a diehard fan or a recent convert, you should know that tickets ($69 to $150) go on sale Friday, November 4 at 10 am through Ticketmaster

We recommend setting an alarm on your phone or computer for 10 am, since tickets will likely sell out quickly. Bonus points if you go change your phone’s clock so that it displays the seconds.

Leading up to the concert, the Weeknd will be busy. His album Starboy drops on November 25, the day after Thanksgiving (perfect for listening while nursing a food baby).
