with Banks & Anna Lunoe
React Presents is proud to present THE WEEKND at The Chicago Theatre for two exciting performances on Sunday, October 13 and Monday, October 14, 2013. THE WEEKND will be joined by special guests Banks (www.hernameisbanks.com) and Anna Lunoe (www.annalunoe.com).
“THE FALL” tour will come on the heels of the soon to be announced release of his sophomore album, Kiss Land [XO/REPUBLIC RECORDS], due out summer 2013. Easily one of the most anxiously awaited albums of 2013, THE WEEKND has already given fans a preview of record with the release of a self-titled teaser track. The song, “Kiss Land”, is another sonic seduction under a blanket of synth gyrations and piercing falsetto, and is available now on iTunes.
With 30 songs on his platinum-certified landmark debut Trilogy, he captivated both listeners and critics. Upon release, the collection landed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. Digitally, it reached #2 on the iTunes Overall Albums Chart, while holding strong on the R&B chart.
Major gatekeepers continue to extol THE WEEKND. The New York Times called him "other worldly", The Source named him "Songbird of his generation, while The Guardian dubbed him a "blatantly provocative and daring new artist". Spin put it best in two simple words: “Totally amazing".
