The Weeknd

Abel Tesfaye, who performs under the moniker The Weeknd, emerged shouded in mystery in 2012, when he uploaded three tracks to YouTube that picked up near-immediate buzz -- despite the fact that nothing was known about the artist who posted them.The tracks eventually got the attention of fellow Toronto artist Drake, who linked to the songs via his blog. Before the year was out, the songs were getting great write-ups on the music-hipster bible Pitchfork and in The New York Times.The Weeknd followed up the next year with three mixtapes -- House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echos of Silence-- that served to further ramp up his profile.

I ve been waiting for The Weeknd to come to Milwaukee since I first heard him back in 2011-2012. He was everything I hoped he would be! He did not disappoint I hope he comes back soon because I will be at every show!!

The concert was amazing!! I was on my feet screaming, singing, and dancing the whole time! The only complaint I have is that it ended too soon!!! I can't wait to see The Weeknd in concert again, I would definitely recommend seeing him!

It was amazing! Of course we wish it was longer, but this is the name of his game. He gives us just enough to keep us yearning for more. The energy in The Fillmore was indescribable. From the crowd, to the sound system, to the atmosphere, to Abel himself. It was just a naturally high experience & even better if you were actually high. lol ... We literally felt the vibrations from the music & his voice in our bodies. Full body orgasm, I promise. This was definitely history in the making.

Waited 3 hours in a line and he only sang for 55 min. I expected more from him with such a strong fanbase, but I enjoyed the concert.

In a small but cozy venue "The Weeknd" delivers his hits from his Trilogy series. While I was a little upset the concert's run time was slightly over an hour (reason for the 4 star and not 5) it was one of the best shows i've been to. Abel proved any doubt that he could replicate his records live to me.

Really awesome event. Abel's voice is unforgettable, the event included many of his songs and was very creative, and it seemed to be a cool group of people! Enjoyed it!

Abel sounded amazing! The band was tight as hell. Venue was much nicer than expected and the sound was great! Stayed away from the jammed dance floor - chilled back near the bar and had a great view all night and only heard the man on the stage - not all the girls singing along on the dance floor. (watch a youtube video and thats all you can hear... those videos do no justice for the sound of the show!) Money well spent. Glad I was able to attend The Weeknd's FIRST US TOUR!!!

I caught The Weeknd in Ft. Lauderdale on May 1, 2012 at Revolution Live. I got there a little late to his perfomance, time on the tickets said 7pm but everyone knows no concert starts at that time. I got there at 9:15 and he had already been on stage, concert finished at 10 sharp. So I caught a good 40-45 minutes, not sure how much I missed before. Venue was packed and hard to find a good place to see him. He sounds good live, not great IMO and the energy was kind of dull, everyone just standing around watching. From the last 40 minutes I saw he didn't perform many of his "hits" that I was hoping he would sing. Walking out afterward I heard some people saying the same thing, that he didn't perform many hits and their favorite songs, etc but they still loved it. All in all, wish I would have came earlier and caught it from beginning to end. If your a fan of his, definitely go early to the shows.

I've been a fan of The Weeknd since he first dropped his mixtape, House Of Balloons, last year and I can honestly say, IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT! :) I've been dying to see him and patiently waiting for him to come to the East Coast and as usual he surprised me and it happened sooner than I expected! His voice sound exactly like I thought it would. Couldn't ask for a better performance! Can't wait to see him again!! :D

I went to the show in Williamsburg Brooklyn, his first concert in NYC. It was truly an amazing show and his voice sounds great live. I wish I could go to the Bowery show as well but tickets aren't available. I would highly recommend watching him live.

Excellent performer! Montreal was a great place. I traveled 4 hours from Upstate new york and it was worth it. The Weeknd is headed great places. Definitely my favorite artist now.

If you're looking for a sound that is similar to his albums, don't bother with seeing him live. I don't want to use the word terrible, but I can't think of a better word. It was highly dissapointing. Walked out about 45 minutes into the show.

Alright so given a person who doesn't have a ton of experience performing live this was an amazing show. Right from the beginning when he played High For This you knew his voice wasn't aided from the studio, he was the real deal. Definitely will be seeing him again!

The concert was unforgettable from beginning until the end. The Weeknd will have you singing your heart out to every song as he rocks the stage. Guest appearances by French Montana and juelz santana was awesome as well.

I was in the bottom section (19? I think) it was super close as close as I can get without playing 400+ for a ticket. The vibes were great both nights at the barcleys. Most of the songs he performed were from his starboy- think he performed only one or two from his beauty behind the madness album. I love every second of it! Belly was also fking great I LOVED his energy-left barcleys a belly fan.
