To celebrate the release of both ‘Heartless’ and ‘Blinding Lights,’ The Weeknd performed twice on The Lake Show with Stephen Colbert, making it Abel’s first live performance since dropping either record.




While Abel performed ‘Heartless’ within the hallways of The Ed Sullivan Theatre, accompanied with flashing lights, he closed out night two on stage with ‘Blinding Lights.’  This time, Abel was surrounding by super-dope, light-up cube alone with black-and-white visuals and side-by-side screens.



Both ‘Heartless’ and ‘Blinding Lights’ are The Weeknd’s latest singles since his 2018 EP, My Dear Melancholy.  Check out this Instagram video (below) Abel posted prior to his TV performance, with excited, screaming fans #TheFansLoveAbel
