Ok, so most people are losing their mind about the Tupac hologram performance at this year’s Coachella Festival in Indio, California. Rightly so, I’d say – that technology is used to eerie effect with Makavelli himself seemingly parading the stage – larger than life.
However, another real coup for Coachella this year was the performance of Abel Tesfaye, or The Weeknd, as he’s more commonly known. Having bust out 3 full-length records in around 18 months, Tesfaye has managed to remain enigmatic and on the right side of coolly reclusive in terms of his live output and public appearances. A couple of modest club shows aside, Coachella is the first ‘big-time’ performance for The Weeknd, which will now be followed by a whistle-stop World Tour through the summer.
His ‘House of Balloons’ record is superb, and well worth picking up if you haven’t (somehow) heard it yet.
