Edge at 30 Hudson Yards Featured in The Weeknd’s VMA Performance

On Sunday night, The Weeknd performed “Blinding Lights” from the observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards, Edge, with the New York City skyline as his backdrop.

For its annual Video Music Awards ceremony, MTV replaced its standard live show with a virtual celebration. The night’s featured artists had the opportunity to explore creative options outside the typical stage for their performances. The Weeknd’s was the most cinematic as he sang his number one hit single “Blinding Lights” from the KPF-designed Edge. The performance was filmed via circling helicopters to capture the views and concluded in a firework show over the Hudson River.
