The Weeknd announces his first international tour including a performance at House of Blues New Orleans on Tuesday June 12, 2012! The emerging Alternative R&B artist, Abel Tesfaye, has swept the nation with his rich compositions complementing his texturized vocals and intricate songcraft. With support from friend and fellow Hip-Hop artist Drake, the artist and producer from Toronto, Canada has released a trilogy of albums last year beginning with House of Balloons which was named #1 album of 2011 by Complex magazine, winning over recent albums by Drake, Jay-Z, and Kanye West. Within the rest of 2011, he released Thursday and Echoes of Silence receiving high acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, MTV, and Rolling Stone. The young artist won ‘Top New Act’ by the 2011 Stereogum Awards as well as the 2012 Sirius XM Indie Awards ‘Solo Artist of the Year/Urban Artist.’ In just the beginnings of his musical career, The Weeknd is all ready becoming an innovative contribution to the underground R&B scene.
