All within two weeks, The Weeknd announced, sold out, and preformed a surprise show in his home town at Toronto's Mod Club. On May 31st, The Weeknd tweeted out that there will be a surprise show. June 1st, he tweets out the date of the concert, and where to buy tickets. On June 4th we were there when tickets sold out before the doors even opened. $40 tickets were being resold for 4x the value the same day. For a special event like this, with only around 500 tickets available some say it was worth the price tag.
Fans waited for hours in the rain on June 13th to enjoy this special occasion. We were all surprised to receive FREE XO hats upon entering the venue. Clothes from the XO shop were available along with limited edition posters which were hand numbered.
Check out the video below where The Weeknd performs "Kiss Land" for the first time.
