On Sunday, July 24, The Weeknd performed to a sold out stadium at Chicago’s Soldier Field—and his theatrics were at an all time high. From donning the infamous face mask spotted in the “How Do I Make You Love Me?” video to his detailed cityscape that lit up the stage, the singer—whose latest album Dawn FM was reviewed by Under the Radar earlier this year—relished in his role as provocateur.

Opening act Kaytranada warmed up onlookers with a focused set that showed off his precision as well as his musicality. The Weeknd, who performed for nearly two hours, executed songs that covered the span of his career. From “The Morning” to “Wicked Games,” “The Hills” to “Save Your Tears,” the spectacular range captivated fans who knew the lyrics to every word.
