The Weeknd – “Kiss Land” Tour

Read in Japanese

Originally from Toronto, Canada, Abel Tesfaye known as his stage name The Weeknd performed in front of screaming 6,000 fans at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall 2 sold-out shows on Monday, October 7 and Tuesday, October 8.

New York City has always held a special place in his heart. He shared that the first time he ever left his native Canada after 21 years was to tour in NYC. He played “Bowery Ballroom” and Music Hall of Williamsburg to promote his acclaimed mixtape “House of Balloons.”

“New York! You guys brought me back here, at Radio City Music Hall this time. Thank you.” 23-year-old said humbly.

Like the album artwork of “Kiss Land,’ the stage was set against dazzling neon lights of Tokyo’s Shibuya district.

The set featured a well-paced balance of songs from his entire catalog, blending the new songs in with fan favorites from the Trilogy era.

While performing the title track of his album “Kiss Land,” massive backdrop screens projecting graphic scenes of Japanese lesbian porn.

Drake didn’t come out to support his fellow Torontonian for “Life For,” but The Weeknd’s band cleanly picked up any slack and thousands of adoring fans at Radio City Music Hall sang along with him.
