Stage: Scène de la Montagne
“I go by the name of The Weeknd and I came all the way from Toronto,” Abel Tesfaye said after opening with "High for This,” the first cut on his 2011 debut mixtape House of Balloons. Really, his trip wasn’t that long. And it felt like he had home court advantage. His druggy R&B had fans addicted to him from start, though it was a bit awkward watching him before sundown. Oddly enough, even tracks like “The Morning” are the joints best suited for the evening.
