The Weeknd surprised fans in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (Jan. 24), when he hit the stage for an unexpected guest performance at rising artist 6LACK’s concert.
Prior to the show, which took place at The Roxy, Abel teased that he would be “poppin’ up somewhere in LA” that evening. However, his destination was unknown to most until he appeared at the venue for a two-song set.
Emerging from the side near the end of 6LACK’s set, Tesfaye rocked out to “Reminder” and “Starboy” as the eager crowd chanted and sang along.
6LACK remained on stage, backing up the Canadian singer throughout. After the surprise, the Interscope signee carried on with his set, including cuts from his debut project Free 6LACK, which dropped last year, ending things off with the viral hit “PRBLMS” as a large screen behind him projected gritty visuals.
Prior to the 6LACK and Weeknd surprise, the sold-out show included a performance from Dreezy, who rocked out to hits like “Body” and “We Gon Ride” during an energetic, dance-filled set.
