The Weeknd Welcomed Ed Sheeran Onstage for ‘Dark Times’ in Toronto

The first time they've ever performed the 'Beauty Behind the Madness' track live together

During last night’s Beauty Behind the Madness tour stop in Toronto — his second date of the tour and only the second date of the cross-country jaunt itself — the Weeknd welcomed Ed Sheeran to the stage for a duet on that album’s quiet, brooding duet, “Dark Times.” It was the first time the pair’s ever performed the track live together, and Abel Tesfaye preempted the British singer-songwriter’s appearance by noting “I’ve written with a lot of people in my life, but Ed Sheeran is the fastest & most talented songwriter ever.”
