Headlines about celebrity stalking are usually about crazed fans who obsessively and sometimes dangerously follow their idols. However, this fall HHN and The Weeknd will be turning the tables and stalking fans in an all-new haunted house based on the Award-winning singer/songwriter’s “After Hours” album.
“The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare” will be featured at both Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood.
According to Universal Studios, eerie sounds from the “After Hours” album will reverberate throughout the haunted house, as guests venture into “a surreal living nightmare filled with grotesque characters and themes inspired by The Weeknd’s music and short films including slashers, maniacs, toad-like creatures and other horrors from the mind of the artist.”
“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.
The Weeknd joins the ranks of other musical headliners like Rob Zombie, Slash, Alice Cooper, and Black Sabbath to blend music into a nightmarish maze but will be the first to do so with R&B/Pop music. These music collaborations have turned out some fun mazes and with The Weeknd’s diabolic and contemporary approaches to musical horror, we expect this to be one of the most popular and unique mazes of the season.
Tickets are on sale now for Halloween Horror Nights and can be purchased online.
