The Weeknd has partnered with Universal Studios for exclusive Halloween Horror Nights that will inspire all-new, terrifying haunted houses.
Beginning September 2 at Universal Orlando Resort and on September 8 at Universal Studios Hollywood, the experience titled ‘The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare’ will be based on his After Hours album. Guests at the nights will get to have a taste of the “twisted mind of this mysterious artist.”
“With the eerie sounds of “After Hours” reverberating throughout the experience, guests will step into a surreal living nightmare filled with grotesque characters and themes inspired by The Weeknd’s music and short films. As they’re stalked by slashers, bandaged maniacs, gruesome toad-like creatures and other unfathomable horrors from the mind of the artist, guests will be challenged to survive the night while trapped within the terrifying, unexpected world of “The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare” – a place that only exists in The Weeknd’s vivid imagination and from which one may never escape.”
“I always wanted my own Halloween Horror Nights haunted house as Halloween has always been significant to my music, so this is a total dream come to life. I feel like my music videos have served as a launching pad for a collaboration like this, and I cannot wait for people to experience this madness!” said Abel ‘The Weeknd’ Tesfaye in a statement.
