To most, The Weeknd is still a mysterious character. Although he's established himself as a hometown hero in Toronto, he hasn't ventured out much for performances, and although he dropped three critically acclaimed mixtapes in 2011 and appeared on Drake's Take Care, you don't see him doing many interviews. In fact, you don't even see many pictures. We got our hands on some flicks from one of his latest shows in Ontario, and the high quality photos offer a glimpse into a side of Abel not yet seen by most fans.
