Doja Cat was set to support The Weeknd on his stadium tour this summer, but she dropped off to recover from tonsil surgery. With the tour beginning in just over a week, The Weeknd has now announced new openers for the shows. Variety reports that Mike Dean, playing an "improv synth set," will join him for the whole tour, with Kaytranada and Snoh Aalegra each on the lineup by date, as well. See all dates below.

The tour kicks off at Toronto's Rogers Centre on July 8, and there's an NYC show on July 16 at MetLife Stadium. Both are with Kaytranada and Mike Dean.

We listed The Weeknd's 2022 album Dawn FM as one of our 50 favorite albums of the year so far; it's also on the 2022 Polaris Prize Long List. Stream it below.

Snoh Aalegra made our list of 15 R&B songs that defined 2021.
