Your fall concert calendar may be filling up fast, but leave Sept. 26 open. Because coming to the Straz Center that night is the elusive Abel Tesfaye, better known as indie-R&B dynamo the Weeknd. With a voice like Michael Jackson and the simmering sexuality of R. Kelly, the Canadian sensation blew us away during a performance at Orlando's House of Blues last fall. Ticket details are scant, but according to Ticketmaster, the Weeknd will also perform at Orlando's Hard Rock Live on Sept. 27; tickets start at $37.50 and go on sale Friday. We'll update you when we know more. According to Consequence of Sound and a press release, Tesfaye will be joined by Anna Lunoe and Banks. Look for songs from the Weeknd's debut album Trilogy plus his forthcoming album Kiss Land, due at the end of the summer.
