The Weeknd at MHOW in April (more by Bao Nguyen)
Canadian R&B singer/Drake affiliate The Weeknd went on his first headlining tour earlier this year surrounding his appearance at Coachella which brought him to NYC for sold out shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg and Bowery Ballroom. Now he's begun revealing more dates for what looks like iwill end up being a full tour surrounding ACL Festival. Two of those dates happen in NYC on October 26 at Terminal 5 and October 27 at Paradise Theater in the Bronx. Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday (8/17) at noon.
Meanwhile, you can also catch The Weeknd in the NYC area when his tour supporting Florence & the Machine with The Maccabees hits Camden, NJ on September 18 at Susquehanna Bank Center. Florence also hits Jones Beach on September 15 without The Weeknd, but with The Maccabees. Tickets for those shows are still available.
The Weeknd's mixtape trilogy is still available for free download on his website. A stream of "High For This" from his House of Balloons tape and a list of all currently known dates are below.
