After easily selling-out First Avenue back in June, it's quite apparent that the atmospheric R&B of the Weeknd clearly has an audience here in Minneapolis. And that passionate bond is only going to get stronger with a just-announced set by The Weeknd at Skyway Theater on what could be quite a stirring Saturday later this month.
Update: "Due to unforeseen production issues the scheduled show with The Weeknd on Saturday, September 22nd at Skyway Theatre has been cancelled." Refund info below.
The Weeknd's mastermind Abel Tesfaye is set to bring his soulful bedroom jams back to Minneapolis for an intimate show a mere three months after captivating a packed First Ave with a live set that saw him fulfill the musical promise suggested by his three ethereal mixtapes.
Tickets for the Weeknd's upcoming Skyway Theater show on September 22 just went on-sale at 10 a.m. today, with advance general admission tickets priced at $30. If any tickets are still available the day of the show (which will be highly doubtful), they will be $35 at the door.
In addition to The Weeknd's enthralling First Ave set, Tesfaye and his band delivered a high-profile performance at Lollapalooza in Chicago last month (just over a year after their first ever live show in Toronto), with the large crowd singing right along with Tesfaye's impassioned lyrics. The torrential rainstorm that postponed part of Lollapalooza on Saturday couldn't derail The Weeknd's biggest show yet, and Tesfaye's spirited performance proved that the buzz and hype surrounding him and his entrancing mixtapes are plenty justified.
The Weeknd's Skyway Theater show on Saturday, September 22 is 18+, with doors at 8 p.m. and showtime scheduled for 9. No word yet on if there will be an opener or not.
Tickets purchased through Ticketmaster will be refunded automatically. Tickets purchased at the box office will be refunded at point of purchase and tickets purchased at Electric Fetus will be refunded at Loring Pasta Bar.
