Canadian singer/songwrighter/producer The Weeknd is currently the hottest entertainer in the music industry and it showed May 6 when his Starboy: Legend of the Fall 2017 Tour took over the Toyota Center in Houston. The show was sold out, but that didn't stop fans from gathering around the venue hours before the show asking to purchase tickets from those who may have had a extra ticket. Some succeeded while others hung around just to hear some of loud music from inside. 

The Weeknd began the show with his massive hit, "Starboy," which went No. 1 on the charts in several different countries but what was most impressive was the massive LED star destroyer-shaped piece that was alone worth the price of admission. Of course the 27-year-old entertainer, who is dating Texas native and fellow musician Selena Gomez, sang all of his big radio hits including "Wicked Games," "Earned It," "The Hills" and "I Feel it Coming."
