With visits to Europe and South America in the books for The Weeknd's Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour, the Canadian pop singer is getting ready to head to his neighbors down South -- the U.S., that is. The Weeknd's North American leg kicks off on April 25, and if you don't already have tickets, we suggest you grab them right here.

If you need a glimpse at what you might get at one of his concerts, we're here to help. We rounded up all the eventful moments from the first half of The Weeknd's tour -- from celebrity sightings to stage design to bringing out the older tunes for OG fans. Here's the scoop on Legend of the Fall before you take the plunge and see it for yourself:

When girlfriend Selena Gomez made it on the big screen

There's almost nothing the media loves more than celebrities attending other celebrities' concerts. Since Selena Gomez is dating The Weeknd, it made her appearance even more special. In a sort of amateur move, the camera operator turned their lens from Abel to Selena, who was sitting in the audience looking on proudly. Gomez did what anyone would do if their face was shown unexpectedly on a big screen: slightly smirked it off and tried to remain cool.

When Drake showed real love

Drake hopped onstage at The Weeknd's show in London to show some love for his Toronto pal, whom he had taken under his wing at the start of The Weeknd's come-up. “He played me ‘What You Need,’" Drake said about their first meeting. "After that, we met up at the studio and I heard House of Balloons, which is in my top five albums of all time. ... Since then, my brother has gone on to become the biggest.”

When Travis Scott gave goosebumps

Travis Scott crashed The Weeknd's Starboy stage in Paris to perform his "Goosebumps" and "Antidote." This isn't the first time that Travis and The Weeknd have hit the stage together. Abel brought him out as the opener for 2015's Beauty Behind The Madness Tour.

When The Weeknd caused a storm with 'High For This'

House of Balloons' "High for This" is one of The Weeknd's most moody and pounding tracks, so the vibrations alone are enough to shake you. Then, add those vocals in...

When the stage glimmered like a night club

Even from up high, you can see that the design of The Weeknd's stage is supposed to resemble a late-night stripclub, with neon poles set every which way. Some of the lights are placed like a toppled cross, creating an arch over the stage like some dark metaphor.

When he conducted a singalong

It felt like everyone in Stockholm were echoing back the words to "Reminder," from his most recent album, Starboy.

When Bryson Tiller served up the appetizers

Bryson Tiller served as the opener, along with Lil Uzi Vert, for the European jaunt of the Legend of the Fall Tour. 

Models were bountiful

Here's Sara Sampio with Selena Gomez dancing and lip synching "Can't Feel My Face."

And Niall Horan seemed to enjoy it

Niall from One Direction took a break from his golfing duties to check out The Weeknd and looked cute bobbing around in the crowd with his friends.

Meanwhile, backstage...

Lil Uzi Vert counted his endless stash of cash.
