The Weeknd performed this Sunday on the biggest stage in the world, the Super Bowl LV halftime show, which was held this year at Tampa’s Raymond Jones Stadium under very special circumstances due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
As the artist himself had announced days before, the performance did not take place on the stadium floor for the first time in its history, but it was decided to create a stage in the upper bleachers to ensure a good show while complying with all sanitary measures.
During the first ten years of the Canadian artist’s career, there are many songs with which he has achieved international success, so for this show, he decided to go for several of his best-known hits without guest artists (neither Rosalia nor Daft Punk, Ariana Grande or Kendrick Lamar). Instead, The Weeknd was accompanied by a huge gospel choir, an orchestra, and a large ensemble of dancers.
Specifically, the performance consisted of the hits ‘Call Out My Name’ (intro), ‘Starboy’, ‘The Hills’, ‘Can’t Feel My Face’, ‘I Feel It Coming’, ‘Save Your Tears’, ‘Earned It’, ‘House Of Balloons’ and ‘Blinding Lights’, the latter performed on the floor alongside an impressive group of dancers.
