After performing only a few songs during the second night of his two sold-out concerts at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium on Saturday, The Weeknd was forced to cut the show short after losing his voice. During his performance of “Can’t Feel My Face” The Weeknd lost his voice, stopped and then came out onstage to tell the crowd: “I can’t give you the concert I want to give you. I’m going to make sure everyone’s good, gets your money back, and I’ll do a show real soon for you guys, but I wanted to come out and personally apologize and not tweet it or Instagram it. I wanted you guys to know that I can’t give you what I want to give you. I apologize. I’m so sorry. You know how much this kills me. I love you. Thank you so much.”
In a Twitter post, he wrote: “My voice went out during the first song and I’m devastated. Felt it go and my heart dropped. My deepest apologies to my fans here. I promise I’ll make it up to you with a new date.”
The Weeknd’s stadium tour then got off to a rocky start in July in his hometown of Toronto, which had to be postponed because of a Rogers wireless network outage. The tour is now expected to move on through Mexico, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa & Middle East.
