The Weeknd

When: Wed., May 17, 7:30 p.m. 2017

The mystifying misspelling of “weekend” that begs to be autocorrected is not the only thing that bugs us about The Weeknd, Abel Tesfaye’s stage persona, but there’s more to love than hate. Tesfaye’s early releases were brilliant combinations of his eclectic musical influences, ranging from Morrissey to Michael Jackson. He made the leap to pop stardom on 2015’s Beauty Behind the Madness, but he’s treading water on Starboy. Which is not to say we don’t recommend this show. We do.

Price: $59 and up.
