The new UBS Arena has officially begun announcing concert dates at the soon-to-be music venue, with The Weeknd the first to begin selling tickets for a concert April 7, 2022, although an opening show for the venue, which will be home of the New York Islanders, has yet to be announced.

The $1.1 billion UBS Arena in Elmont is currently under construction adjacent to Belmont Park racetrack and will be one of the most modern and innovative multipurpose arenas in the world. Tickets for the concert are available at ubsarena.com.

The Weeknd, who is also headlining the Super Bowl Halftime this year, added additional New York dates to his 2022 After Hours World Tour. On Feb. 11-12, 2022, The Weeknd will perform at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and on April 4-5, 2022, he will perform at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan.
