The Weeknd has been confirmed to play Coachella 2012, possibly his first show in the United States.

One of the most lauded and unavailable new artists, The Weeknd, announced today tour dates for 2012. The Weeknd’s blowup success in 2011 made him one of the most demanded artists, but until today he hadn’t announced a tour. Starting with two performances at Coachella, a trip to Spain, and back for Lollapalooza. His tour ends (conveniently) before San Francisco’s Outside Lands.
