Trilogy drops November 13th!

The Weeknd performs Wicked Games in Paris

By far one of the best live performances of any song by any artist I’ve ever seen. It’s crazy how far Abel’s live vocals and stage presence have come in the past year.

Throwback of the Week: Yonge-Dundas Square Freestyle

Abel + La Mar Taylor + Hyghly Alleyne = She’s So Lovely → today’s XO Crew.

North American tour ends in Vancouver, BC

Abel decided to bring it back up to Canada for the last show of his mainly U.S.-based XO tour, and it certainly ended with a bang. These videos from squirtoise capture almost the whole concert from last night’s Vancouver show and definitely capture the full energy in that crowd.

He’s not done touring quite yet, though… After about a half-month break, he’ll be all over Europe performing at festivals in the United Kingdom, Spain, and Portugal, then back to Canada for a few random shows + OVO Fest 2012 (!!!!!), then back to America to tour with Florence + the Machine for a few dates. Check the sidebar for the full schedule and ticket information ASAP!

Keep reading to watch more videos from the Vancouver show. How much do you think Abel and his band have progressed as performers since the first show of this tour?
