The Weeknd has confirmed details of a secret show in west London this weekend.

The enigmatic RnB singer from Toronto released his debut album 'Trilogy' earlier this month and will perform tracks from the album at a mystery location in the capital on Sunday night (November 25). Tickets for the gig will be available to fans via a ballot on his official website. Winners will be contacted via email before 9pm this evening. All entrants must be aged 18 or over.

'Trilogy' features remixed and remastered versions of the Canadian R&B artist's three mixtapes - 'House Of Balloons', 'Thursday' and 'Echoes Of Silence' - which were released in 2011, as well as three new tracks. The whole package will feature 30 tracks in total and will be released on November 12.

The Weeknd has been name-checked by a raft of other artists, and he has collaborated with Drake on several tracks, including 'Take Care', from his Number One album of the same name. He was also asked by Lady Gaga to remix her track 'Marry The Night', has created a remix of 'Shake It Out' for Florence And The Machine and also features on 2 Chainz's new album 'Based On A TRU Story'.

The singer – real name is Abel Tesfaye – played his first UK show in June at intimate 300-capacity east London venue Wilton's Music Hall. Outside the sold-out show, tickets were being traded for £350, a full £330 over face value.
