Behind The Scenes: On Tour With The Weeknd

Photographer Elie Jonathon takes you backstage with one of this year's top recording artists.

Toronto photographer Elie “Visionelie” Jonathan recently joined The Weeknd and the XO crew on their 20-date North American arena tour. In between the incredible stadium shots you’d expect to see at one of this year’s hottest recording artists’ sold-out shows, there’s the quiet, more intimate moments that reveal him to be just another guy: playing video games backstage, hanging out with friends, and pensively checking his texts. Although, when you’re The Weeknd, your inner circle includes Travis Scott and Banks, to name only a few of the familiar faces who make an appearance in the photo essay.
