The Weeknd

No sleep till Brooklyn. The Weeknd kicked off his “King of the Fall” tour at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Friday night. The Canadian crooner was joined by supporting acts ScHoolboy Q and Jhené Aiko on the first date of his four-city tour.

Fresh off the No. 3 debut of her album Souled Out, Aiko warmed up the stage with her soulful songs including “Lyin King,” “Spotless Mind,” and “The Pressure,” as well as material off her EP Sail Out.

TDE’s ScHoolboy Q made a “Gangsta” entrance before performing his Oxymoron singles “Man of the Year,” “Studio,” and his verse on Tinashe’s “2 On.”

He even made light of Kanye West’s recent controversy. “I’m about to get my Kanye West on and make everyone who’s even in a wheelchair get up from sitting down,” joked Q before performing “Collard Greens.”

But all eyes were on The Weeknd, who owned the night, delivering a seductive set that included “Wicked Games” and “Twenty Eight.” He also performed his cover of Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love” and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Or Nah (Remix).”

The tour will play Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on Sept. 21, L.A.’s Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 9, and San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Oct. 10.
