The Weeknd Wows Boston In His First Headlining Show

Subscribe to WFHN-FM/FUN 107 on

Hard to believe, but last night was the first time The Weeknd has ever headlined a show in Boston.  He’s made quick appearances at the TD Garden, but never a full on show.  Last night, he made up for lost time.  The Weeknd started the show off by appearing under a light fixture reminiscent of a futuristic starship…popping out of the floor on a catwalk that led out to the center of the crowd.

And that’s where he stayed all night.  He led off with the Starboy (the title track from the 2017 tour), and furiously weaved his way through a litany of album cuts and hits, never releasing the crowd from the palm of his hand.  The Weeknd repeatedly mentioned the fact that the Boston crowd was incredibly loud…one of the loudest he remembered.  This wasn’t just a generic throwaway comment that so many artists make from the stage…he genuinely meant it.  After the show, he told me that the only other city that gave Boston a run for the money in the noise department was Philadelphia.  He laughed when I reminded him that Philly may be loud, but we have a much better football team here in New England.

The Starboy even reached back to his 2011 mixtape days with some cuts from his debut “House of Balloons”.  He finished off the night with one radio hit after another (including Earned It, In The Night, Can’t Feel My Face, I Feel It Coming)…with an encore of “The Hills” that blew the roof off of the Garden.
