Los Angeles - GRAMMY U SoundChecks With The Weeknd
Author: David Brik, GRAMMY U Los Angeles Representative.
GRAMMY U Los Angeles members had the incredible opportunity to attend an exclusive sound check with The Weeknd on April 29, 2017 at the Forum. The Weeknd, a two-time GRAMMY winner, is currently on his Starboy: Legend of the Fall 2017 World Tour.
After listening to the artist rehearse some of his biggest hits including “Angel” and “Starboy”, GRAMMY U members were able to engage in a Q&A with the Weeknd himself. Topics ranged from pre-show rituals, to finding inspiration when writing music. Students even gained insight into the origins of the relationship between the Weeknd and Daft Punk, both of which performed at the 59th GRAMMY Awards.
At the end, we took a group shot and GRAMMY U students left with a better understanding of what it’s like to put on a concert for one of the biggest artists in the world. Special thanks to the Weeknd and his entire team for taking the time to accommodate and meet with GRAMMY U members!
