The Weeknd has revealed plans for a headlining tour this fall in support of his forthcoming album, Kiss Land. The Canadian producer and R&B favorite, born Abel Tesfaye, will hit Boston for a two-night stand at the Orpheum Theatre on Thursday, October 10 and Friday, October 11. Tickets for each of the shows, which range in price from $35 to $49.50, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Banks and Anna Lunoe will also perform.

Kiss Land is due out at the end of the summer, though no official release date has been announced. Fans can get a taste of the album with the lead single and title track, which is streaming below. It follows his platinum-certified debut Trilogy, which landed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 after its release last November.
