The Weeknd headlined the Super Bowl LV Pepsi Halftime Show that took place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida last night (February 7). In accordance with the event’s COVID-19’s protocols, the R&B star appeared on a stage that was set up in the stands above the crowd, though he did eventually make it down to the football field, along with his crew of dancers. He performed a selection of some of his biggest hits, including ‘Starboy’, ‘The Hills’, and ‘Can’t Feel My Face’, which saw him going into mirrored corridor accompanied by a group of people with their faces bandaged up. He concluded his set with a massive performance of ‘Blinding Lights’. Watch it happen below, and check out the full setlist.
The Weeknd, whose real real name is Abel Tesfaye, reportedly invested 7 million of his own money to cover the production costs for the performance. “We’ve been really focusing on dialing in on the fans at home and making performances a cinematic experience, and we want to do that with the Super Bowl,” Tesfaye recently told Billboard. In addition to releasing his most recent album After Hours last year, he also issued a greatest hits collection, The Highlights, ahead of his Super Bowl performance.
