On stage, Alt-R&B's futuristic provocateur seamlessly merges his chaotically sexy music with haunting and hypnotic visuals, making for an immersive live experience that spares none of the senses. His impressive falsetto carries with the same tortured bliss on stage, creating a must-see evening for fans and newcomers alike.
Support on the tour will come from Australian electronic dance music seductress Anna Lunoe and LA-based singer/ songwriter Banks, creating a diverse and dynamic evening hand-picked by the headliner.
"The Fall" tour will come on the heels of the soon to be announced release of his sophomore album, Kiss Land (XO/REPUBLIC RECORDS), which is due out at the end of the summer. Easily one of the most anxiously awaited albums of 2013, The Weeknd has already given fans a preview of the record with the release of a self-titled teaser track. The song, "Kiss Land", is another sonic seduction under a blanket of synth gyrations and piercing falsetto, and its available now on iTunes.
With 30 songs on his platinum-certified landmark debut Trilogy, he captivated both listeners and critics. Upon release, the collection landed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. Digitally, it reached #2 on the iTunes Overall Albums Chart, while holding strong on the R&B chart.
