The Weeknd Closes Out Coachella 2018 With Triumphant Set [VIDEO]
The Weeknd delivered a memorable performance at the 2018 Coachella Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., on Friday night (April 13). Making his third Coachella appearance, the R&B superstar captured the audience with his stage presence as he performed songs from his expansive catalog.
According to Billboard, the Weeknd performed several tracks from his previously released efforts Kiss Land, Beauty Behind the Madness and Starboy. As well as from his mixtape trilogy -- House of Balloons, Thursdays and Echoes of Silence.
The Weeknd kicked off his performance with the Black Panther collab “Pray for Me” (sans Kendrick Lamar), and then segueing into “Starboy” and “Can’t Feel My Face.”
After an hour and half into his set, the Weeknd gave the fans what they really want to hear -- selections from his current No. 1 EP My Dear Melancholy. The crooner delivered an emotional acoustic version of “Call Out My Name.” With just only a guitarist backing him up, his lovelorn lyrics ranged out in the sky as the crowd sung along to his every word.
The Weeknd closed out his set with his 2015 hit single, “The Hills” with shooting flames behind him.
Although he didn't bring out any surprise guests, it wasn't needed as the Weekend conquered the Coachella stage all by himself. He might have some surprises for fans when he performs next Friday (April 20).
Overall, the Weeknd delivered a near-flawless performance and as Billboard pointed out -- he proved to the fans in Indio, Calif., that he is indeed a motherfucking Starboy.
