Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The ‘Star­boy’ hit­maker rounded off the three-day mu­sic ex­trav­a­ganza, held at Fins­bury Park in North Lon­don, on the main stage on Sun­day with hit af­ter hit from his ‘House of Bal­loons’ al­bum as the crowd went wild for his in­cred­i­ble voice. The 27-year-old hunk whose real name is Abel Makko­nen Tes­faye - ap­peared to be hav­ing the time of his life as he bounced around on stage to shrieks from his fans. It’s not known if his girl­friend Se­lena Gomez - whom he’s been dat­ing since the end of last year fol­low­ing his split from Bella Ha­did - was back­stage watch­ing his set but there were ru­mours float­ing around that she had touched down in the English cap­i­tal. Ear­lier on in the day, the likes of Bugzy Malone, Tyga, Ty Dolla $ign, Pusha T, Nas and Wizkid took to the main stage to per­form their en­er­getic set un­der the hot sun. Things turned ad­ven­tur­ous in the early evening when Tory Lanez de­cided to try some­thing new to­wards the end of his gig by crowd-surf­ing to his song ‘Diego’. The 24-year-old rap­per told the crowd: “Ok, we’re go­ing to try some­thing now. I need you all to make a line and I’m go­ing to surf from the front to the back and back again.” It all seemed to be go­ing well un­til he was al­most dropped and se­cu­rity was forced to in­ter­vene and heave him back on to the stage so that he could fin­ish off his song. De­spite his bright idea, Tory - real name is Daystar Peter­son - ap­peared to be ex­hausted when his feet fi­nally touched the stage again as he col­lapsed on the floor and asked his staff if he could have some wa­ter. He con­cluded his 40-minute gig by thank­ing his fans for hav­ing him and telling them he’ll be back soon for an­other

show.
