After releasing a digitally-successful mixtape series and two appearances on Drake's platinum album, Take Care, Abel Tesfaye, also known as The Weeknd, is now heading to Barcelona!
On June 2, The Weeknd will perform at his first-ever European show at Pitchfork’s "Primavera Sound 2012" concert. Danny Brown and A$AP Rocky are also newcomers to the bill, among many others.
In 2011, The Weeknd released three mixtapes, House of Balloons, Thursday, and the final of the trilogy, Echoes of Silence. Later in the year, he appeared on Drake's Take Care on "The Ride" and "Crew Love". He makes his U.S. debut at Coachella this April.
