If you missed his show at Amer­i­canair­lines Arena dur­ing his 2015 Mad­ness Tour, or didn’t ring in 2016 with him and Justin Bieber at the Fon­tainebleau’s pool­side New Year’s Eve bash, don’t let 2017 be the third year in a row you pass up the chance to wit­ness the vo­cal prow­ess of Abel Tes­faye, aka the Weeknd. The 27-year-old dou­ble-gram­my­win­ning Cana­dian R&B artist will do his thing and get 20,000 fans touch­ing on their bod­ies at BB&T Cen­ter on May 11 as part of his Star­boy: Leg­end of the Fall World Tour.

De­but­ing at num­ber one on the Bill­board 200, Star­boy, the Weeknd’s third stu­dio al­bum (and what he has called “the next chap­ter” in his mu­sic), fea­tures tracks with sonic prodi­gies like Lana Del Rey, Fu­ture, Ken­drick La­mar, and Daft Punk. Just this Fe­bru­ary, the Weeknd and Daft Punk per­formed at the 2017 Grammy Awards. And dur­ing his tour stop in Lon­don, he even brought out fel­low Toron­to­nian “Drizzy” Drake. What sur­prises will the Weeknd have up his sleeve for his 25-song set—which in­cludes (spoiler alert!) Beauty Be­hind the Mad­ness mas­ter­works like “Of­ten,” plus a three-song en­core end­ing with “The Hills”? There’s only one way to find out. Tell your friends... May 11 at 7:30 PM, BB&T Cen­ter, 1 Pan­ther Pkwy., Sun­rise, 954835-7000; tick­et­mas­ .

With a fu­tur­is­tic stage—fea­tur­ing a huge, il­lu­mi­nated star over­head— the Weeknd (seen per­form­ing in Lon­don) proves why his star con­tin­ues to rise.
