The Weeknd is debuting a haunted house at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights

Michael Myers, Dracula and now The Weeknd will be offering the scares at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights, with the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter set to debut an all-new horror experience






It might not have been what you were expecting for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights, but Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter The Weeknd is the face of an unprecedented experience that will create an all-new haunted house experience based on his record-breaking ‘After Hours’ album.

Dubbed ‘The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare’, select tracks from the chart-topping album will be reimagined as a horror movie soundtrack and played as guests explore the “dark undercurrent behind The Weeknd’s enigmatic persona”. Inside, guests will “step into a surreal living nightmare” which is filled with grotesque characters and themes inspired by The Weeknd’s music and short films.

“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,” said The Weeknd, also known as Abel Tesfaye.

“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.”

Halloween Horror Nights kicks off at Universal Orlando Resort on September 2 and then at Universal Studios Hollywood on September 8. Both events run on select nights and will conclude on October 31. Other mazes confirmed for this year include Halloween, Blumhouse and a selection of legendary monsters.
