Following a sold out show at the Commodore Ballroom in May, Toronto-based R&B artist, The Weeknd makes his triumphant return to Vancouver on Saturday, September 29th. Tickets are on sale Friday, August 17th at 10am from www.livenation.com. Anyone that was lucky enough to see him at the Commodore may want to get tickets to this show as well.
Discovered after leaking songs to Youtube in 2010, Abel Tesfaye, the mastermind behind The Weeknd went on to release a nine-song mixtape, House of Balloons in 2011. Hip-hop star Drake quoted a line from a track on Twitter and helped launch The Weeknd into the mainstream.
In a review of the House of Balloons mixtape, Pitchfork Media’s Joe Colly wrote that “all the thematic and sonic pieces fit together – these weird, morning-after tales of lust, hurt, and over-indulgence … are matched by this incredibly lush, downcast music. It’s hard to think of a record since probably the xx’s debut … that so fully embodies such a specific nocturnal quality.”
