The Weeknd_Live_In Chicago

It’s finally here! Just below you have the opportunity to download one of The Weeknd’s first ever live shows in the states. Recorded at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall on a night of a deluge, The Weeknd rocked the sold-out intimate space, that was packed with more bros than anyone else.

The recording below is not fantastic quality, but it serves as an accurate representation as the show. As you’ll hear on the tape, there was about as much crowd participation as a Dashboard Confessional concert. And moments of deep bass were as disorienting live as they are distorted here. Live, Abel knows how to work a crowd, and despite incessant chatter, you can hear how pumped up everyone is to be there. It was excellent to see this young performer at the beginning of his game, next time he comes through Chicago will certainly be at a larger venue.

Without further adieu, below is the download link. This serves as the second ever FP Bootleg Series, the first being James Blake’s 2010 show in DC. If you’re interested in that recording, or if this link goes inactive, let us know.
