The Weeknd “Not Stressing” About Last Minute Coachella Gig
The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia are replacing Kanye West at Coachella, which kicks off this weekend. And while the booking may have come last minute, The Weeknd doesn’t seem overly concerned about it.
“Even though everything is coming together at the last minute, Abel is not stressing about Coachella,” a source tells HollywoodLife, referring to the R&B star by his real name Abel Tesfaye. “The fact that this is all being coordinated pretty much at the last minute isn’t much of a concern and he’s confident this will be pulled off without a hitch.”
The source adds that The Weeknd, who’ll be playing both Sundays of the fest, has “been in situations like this before where he’s had to make last minute adjustments, so this is nothing new,” noting, “he just wants to get out there and have fun, and he’s so excited to be working with Swedish House Mafia on this.”
