The Weeknd Played “Dirty Diana,” “Crew Love” At His UK Debut

    Last night was Abel Tesfaye’s debut show in the U.K. Better known as singer/songwriter the Weeknd, he played Wilton’s Music Hall in east London to an enthusiastic crowd of 300 that included not only regular people, but fellow artists Florence Welch (of Florence + the Machine), Katy Perry and Jessie Ware.

    The set list for the sold-out show featured plenty of moody Weeknd originals, as well as Tesfaye’s cover of Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana” and “Crew Love,” his collaboration with Drake that appeared on Take Care. A few fans recorded pieces of the performance, and you can watch the Weeknd do “The Party & the After Party” and the show opener, “High For This.” After that you can take a look at the night’s set list.
