According to the logline, “After a nervous breakdown derailed Jocelyn’s (Lily-Rose Depp) last tour, she’s determined to claim her rightful status as the greatest and sexiest pop star in America. Her passions are reignited by Tedros (Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye), a nightclub impresario with a sordid past. Will her romantic awakening take her to glorious new heights or the deepest and darkest depths of her soul?”
Two days after The Idol premieres, The Weeknd will launch the second leg of his After Hours Til Dawn Tour in Europe and Latin America. The upcoming tour will support The Weeknd’s most recent albums, After Hours and Dawn FM. The latter album was first released in January 2022 and later expanded into Dawn FM (Alternate World).
Kaytranada and Mike Dean will support The Weeknd as special guests on tour.
