A few songs in, during "Belong to the World," an impressive display of signs resembling those of Tokyo, Japan,'s Kabukicho District lined the stage.

Words like "Seafood" and "Hotel" in both Japanese and English illuminated the otherwise dark auditorium. This reflected the foreign-feeling themes of Kiss Land, which Tesfaye wrote about touring life and alienation.

He often addressed the crowd, at one point calling Miami "like a second home" and later recalling how he had never left Toronto until a tour at age 21 in order to "see all of y'all." The crowd received these bits of info with predictable shrieks and applause.

The audience's sexy dancing and somewhat Beatles-like adulation continued until Tesfaye closed the rainy Saturday night show with "Wicked Games." Lines like "I love to watch you dance" and "So tell me you love me/Only for tonight" proved incredibly appropriate and at the time seemed personally written for this downtown Miami crowd.
