I really wish I had a cooler story for how
The Weeknd plays London!
Who announces a gig less than two weeks before the actual show? The Weeknd that’s who and I love it. I’ve had to invest in a secure vault for all the tickets I’ve bought for gigs that are in 6 months time, so well-played sir!
The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) who featured heavily on my “best of 2011″ lists, most notably with the song House Of Balloons / Glass Table Girls and his third mix tape of the year, Echoes of Silence (which you can download for free here), will be appearing at Wilton’s Music Hall on June 7th.
Check out his set at Coachella (below) and if you’re not convinced to buy tickets instantly, I’m not sure we can talk any more. UPDATE: Thanks to NHK and Lalalala for the comments, I’ve added another clip from Brooklyn (thanks for the link Lalalala), I’ve kept the Coachella video though as even if it’s not his best performance the sound is clean and now we now have sun in London I’m obsessed with anything sunny!
Tickets go on general release tomorrow (that’s Monday 28th May) at 9am from Live Nation for £22.25 and considering how many people awoke from hangover sleep on a Sunday morning to instantly purchase all of the pre-sale allocation you better get in their fast.
(Oh and just in case you get your hopes up of Drake making an appearance – as he has done in the US – I checked and while he doesn’t have a show on the same day he’s in Cincinnati the day before and somewhere in New York state the day after, so would be a long shot)
