The Weeknd put on a hell of a show at halftime of Super Bowl LV in Tampa on Sunday night. He performed some of his greatest hits and had very unique visuals for his show. The same day, he also received a major honor in his hometown of Toronto.

Mayor John Tory announced that February 7 will now be “The Weeknd Day” in the city of Toronto. He also noted how history is being made with The Weeknd being the first Canadian to headline a solo SB halftime show.

“This Sunday – on Super Bowl Sunday – we celebrate The Weeknd as he becomes the first Canadian to headline a solo halftime show and only the third Canadian ever to perform live at one of the world’s most-watched events,” the statement reads. “Toronto is proud that one of its own, The Weeknd, has achieved such enormous popularity both here at home and on the world stage. NOW THEREFORE, I, Mayor John Tory, on behalf of Toronto City Council, do hereby proclaim Feb 7th, 2021 as ‘The Weeknd Day’ in the City Of Toronto.”

The XO star also revealed this week that his “After Hours Tour” will be rescheduled again from summer 2021 to January 2022. It will kick off in Vancouver and conclude in London in November. His “The Highlights” album which was released last week which features his greatest hits is also the most streamed album in Spotify history as well.
