Two very resourceful contributors over at KanyeToThe.com, ransom67 and GJ, collected and professionally mixed audio clips from The Weeknd’s first ever live show, which went down in his hometown of Toronto on July 24th.

It’s a rare privilege to attend the inaugural show of a sure-fire star in the making, and thanks to some dedicated individuals and the resources of the internet, we can all live vicariously through this excited and, uh, vocal crowd.

Almost every Weeknd song we know of is included, save for “Loft Music” and the intro to “House of Balloons – Glass Table Girls”, which GJ apologizes profusely for. That’s alright bro, thanks for the good times.

If you haven’t done so yet, take the time to download The Weeknd’s free mixtape, House of Balloons. It just happens to be one of the best album length releases we’ve heard all year. We’re still waiting on two new mixtapes from Mr. Tesfaye.
