There’s nothing like having a guest artist come out at a concert. Last summer I went to the Hollywood Bowl to see Billy Joel, and was pleasantly surprised when I found out that Gavin DeGraw was opening for him, though he wasn’t featured on the lineup. Then, I was even more surprised when Adam Levine of Maroon 5, came out from backstage and sang a duet of “You May Be Right” with Joel. (I was more focused on Adam Levine’s hair than his vocals though. This was when he went through that weird bleached blonde stage.) In the end Joel’s performance was spectacular, and the featuring of DeGraw and Levine were the icing on an already awesome cake.
So I was happy for Coachella-goers when I heard that Kanye West made an appearance at The Weeknd’s set during the second weekend of the music festival in Indio, California. After R&B Singer Abel Tesfaye (a.k.a. The Weeknd) did his own rendition of West’s “Heartless”, Mr. West himself appeared onstage alongside Tesfaye. Together they performed “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”, “Black Skinhead”, “Don’t Like (Remix)”, and “All Day”. Check out the duo’s performance of “All Day” below.
