The Weeknd Teams Up With Universal Studios For “After Hours” –Inspired Haunted Houses

Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights are getting a touch of the spooky courtesy of Canadian singer The Weeknd. The creation is inspired by the songster’s 2020 album “After Hours.” 

In a post on his verified Instagram page, the singer had shared the flier to the event but without comment. A devil emoji was all there was to let fans know what the post was all about. 

It doesn’t stop there, however. Part of the inspiration for the spectral experience is the one-time banned book A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. The others are Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and Jacob’s Ladder. 

Speaking about the “After Hours”–inspired haunted houses via a press release, the maestro had noted it was a dream come true as Halloween has always been a part of his music, and he’s always wanted to own Halloween Horror Nights haunted house.

The singer feels his music videos have provided a pedestal for the collaboration with Universal Studios. And he’s so excited that he can’t wait for fans to experience it all.

For those who might be circumspect about what’s coming, the Halloween offering is not a retelling of the songster’s 2020 album “After Hours.”

Now, watch out for the ghosts. Lol.
