UBS Arena at Belmont Park has announced its first concert: The Weeknd will bring his "After Hours World Tour" to Elmont on April 7, 2022. Tickets are set to go on sale Monday at 10 a.m., hours after his Super Bowl halftime show performance in Tampa.
The arena, which is said to hold 18,853 seats for concerts, will host 150 events per year and serve as the home of the New York Islanders. The venue is part of a $1.1 billion development project at Belmont Park that will include a 250-room hotel and 350,000 square feet of retail on 43 acres adjacent to the racetrack.
The Weeknd is currently supporting his 2020 album, "After Hours," which has spawned hits such as "Heartless" and "Blinding Lights." Additionally, the pop singer is set to release a new compilation, "The Highlights," this Friday featuring his favorite songs from his four-album catalog.
Before coming to UBS Arena, The Weeknd will play four area concerts: two at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Feb. 11 and 12 as well as two at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan on April 4 and 5. Both the Feb. 11 and April 4 shows are rescheduled from last year. The new dates — Feb. 12 and April 5 — go on sale Monday at 10 a.m.
