The World Food Programme (WFP), the world’s largest humanitarian organization fighting global hunger, has teamed up with its Goodwill Ambassador Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye to launch the XO HUMANITARIAN FUND, to which he will donate $1 from every ticket sold in North America from this highly anticipated tour. The Weeknd will also donate $500,000, and World Food Program USA will contribute $1 million to the initiative. The multi-platinum and diamond certified global celebrity launched this fund to support the United Nations World Food Programme’s crucial food aid to people on the verge of starvation in countries such as Ethiopia, Madagascar, and Yemen, driven by his desire to help those in need. World Food Program USA is in charge of the Fund.
The Weeknd will be touring his massive album After Hours (whose hit single “Blinding Lights” was named the new No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 song of all time, surpassing Chubby Checker’s 1960 hit “The Twist”), as well as the recently released and critically acclaimed album DAWN FM, for the first time in 2022.
The tour will be his most ambitious to date, reflecting the creative journey that has been unfolding for both of these albums, creating worlds within worlds as we’ve all seen unfold in various television performances, music videos, and short films bringing these first two pieces of his trilogy to life.
The Weeknd x The Dawn FM Experience premiered on Prime Video earlier this week.

The Weeknd x The Dawn FM Experience is now available exclusively on Prime Video to Prime members in over 240 countries and territories across the world.
