    Crowd still singing just as much as before and he's having fun with it. Definitely improving live. He'll be ready for Coachella.

    These are the reasons that artists should shroud themselves in mystery. I am the hugest fan, and I can't wait for his set, but I liked him more before I realized he used to work at American Apparel.

    If practice makes perfect, The Weeknd could use a little work
    Outrageously hyped Toronto musician fails to impress at Metropolis

    The Weeknd is a newcomer in the R&B music industry; his debut mixtape House of Balloons recently celebrated its one-year anniversary. Hype surrounding the Toronto artist is almost unbelievable considering his lack of stage experience and radio play. Regardless, Montreal was pumped up and ready for his sold out show Friday night at Metropolis.

    Abel Tesfaye is the real name of the man behind the mysterious digital albums, which are available for free on his website. He’s received praise from Pitchfork and Rolling Stone, and House of Balloons was nominated for a 2011 Polaris Music Prize. The Weeknd is known for his crooning soprano voice, which hits falsetto notes effortlessly. The real question was whether his live performance could live up to his studio material.

    Approximately 2,000 people filled the venue. The doors opened at 6 p.m., but unfortunately for those standing, an average DJ mixed tracks until 9 p.m. The audience was sedated with boredom, yet still anticipated the show.

    Once the DJ left the stage, the energy immediately picked up. The lights dimmed, excited shrieks vibrated throughout the room, and cell phones flew into the air, preparing to document the 22-year-old’s first steps on the stage.

    Opening with “High For This,” one of his better-known songs, was a wise choice. Backed by a three-piece band, The Weeknd swayed and jumped around the stage in an attempt to win over the crowd. For an artist who has performed live very little, his effort to engage the audience was valiant, but lacked practice.

    Another song that stood out in his performance was “The Zone.” His fans sang along passionately, watching black and white images of nearly naked women projected on a screen behind him.

    For the song titled “Montreal,” The Weeknd aimed the mic at the audience, encouraging them to keep singing along.
    His set list featured songs from all three of his mixtapes. His voice proved to be genuine, and not enhanced with studio effects. But too often, he sang incomplete sentences or avoided the lyrics altogether. However, his effort at Michael Jackson-like dancing across the stage compensated for his vocals many times.

    When the beat for “The Morning” started, the crowd went insane. He also sang “The Fall,” “House Of Balloons/Glass Table Girls,” and “Loft Music.” After his performance, which didn’t seem to last as long as a typical concert, he came back out for an encore: an acoustic performance of “Wicked Games.”

    The Weeknd will be back in Montreal for Osheaga in August, after a European tour and performing at Coachella. Hopefully the young artist will develop a better stage presence between now and this summer and will return to Montreal with even more hysteria than before.

    damn that is a pretty bad review. was afraid of him getting lazy with the crowd singing along. hopefully he just starts to sing as it sounds like his voice is not a problem. still think he will bring it at coachella.

    Disputably consensual sex and oxycontin overdoses? Good for you.

    Hah, anyway I'm a total square and haven't done 95% of what this guy sings about, and I still find (most) of the music sexy.

    I thought everyone thought the music was sexy because women like to pole dance to it.

    Had my first Coachella dream of the year (pretty late start!) last night, he played the Sahara at 2 PM. Radiohead closed out the Gobi against the Academy Awards on the outdoor theater (and Touche Amore headlining the main stage!)

    I'm getting pretty impatient for "The Zone" video which has been in the works since January. I wonder if he is waiting to drop it sometime next week before the festival to kick up the hype machine again.

    Also there have been some really good remixes out there. Some of my favorites.

    MeLo-X: Drake X The Weeknd - Crew Love (Live Re-edit)


    The Weeknd - The Zone (Chi Duly Remix)


    The Weeknd - Echoes of Silence (Chi Duly Remix)


    The Weeknd - enotS gnilloR (Chi Duly Remix)

    "Maybach Music IV" (W. Roberts, S. Carter, A. Graham, K. Duckworth, A. Tesfaye, K. Bartolomei, E. Ortiz, K. Crowe)

    Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Drake, Kendrick, Weeknd. Don't know who else.

    And before any of you idiots mention it, no Ross, Jay and Drake aren't coming to Coachella to premiere this song no matter how big the stage is for the media.

    For those of you thinking this will be his "second or third" show, he's done about 7 or 8 shows in Canada (all in the Toronto area as well as Montreal and Ottawa). I've been at two of them, both front row. From his first appearance at OVOFest to his most recent shows, he's improved SIGNIFICANTLY. I'm pumped to see him do a big show in front of a huge crowd (all his shows have been relatively small except OVO).

    Oh and he's always started with the same song every show so far (don't wanna spoil it for people). I can also almost guarantee he will keep a bottle of henny on stage to drink from.
