When R&B singer Abel Tesfaye released his debut mixtape, House of Balloons, in 2011, he did so hidden behind the Weeknd moniker: faceless and nameless, with no pictures, concerts or interviews. Since then, he's made the leap from mystery-cloaked DIY buzz magnet to Grammy-winning superstar, and deservedly so—in recent years, Tesfaye's revitalized his drugged out psychosexual fantasy with '80s funk basslines and a glossy pop shimmer. The heartbreaker dropped off last fall’s Meadows Festival due to a conflicting appearance on SNL. Fortunately, he’s making it up to us with a few stadium-size stopovers, so you have no excuse to miss the Toronto singer-producer pushing R&B to ever lusher, edgier extremes.
