The Weeknd

The Weeknd will be in the NYC-area this, uh, weekend, for the Billboard Hot 100 Festival at Jones Beach (tickets), and he'll be back here on a just-announced fall tour that includes three massive shows in the area.

Abel Tesfaye will play Newark's Prudential Center on November 11, NYC's Madison Square Garden on November 16, and Brooklyn's Barclays Center on November 18. Tickets for the whole tour go on sale August 28 with a presale starting August 26 at 10 AM (password: MADNESS). All dates are listed below.

The Weeknd's second official album, Beauty Behind the Madness, is due out August 28 via XO/Republic. It features the massive hit "Can't Feel My Face" (co-written and co-produced by Max Martin and others) and more. Video for that song, with the list of dates, below...
