AceShowbiz - The Weeknd's recent concert in Las Vegas was indeed lit. Major fire erupted at the Canadian singer-songwriter's show during its "After Hours til Dawn Tour" stop in Sin City over the weekend.
The Weeknd's concert took place at Allegiant Stadium on Saturday night, August 20. As fans were leaving the stadium, they spotted a large fire just outside the venue. Images and video posted to social media appeared to show the fire engulfing and destroying a large vehicle, either a bus or trailer, that was in the stadium's parking area.
According to Fox News, the Clark County Fire Department responded to the blaze just before 11 P.M. and quickly got the fire under control. The cause of the blaze was not immediately revealed, but news reports say that the fire came from a vehicle containing merchandise.
No injuries were reported from the incident as fans were seen remaining calm despite the flames. Some social media users were even joking about the blaze, writing comments like "The Weeknd's concert was so hot that the stadium caught fire."
The Weeknd has not spoken on the fire either. He, however, posted photos from the Las Vegas show on his Instagram page and raved over the city. "look how beautiful you were LAS VEGAS! a night i'll cherish forever," he wrote in the caption, before promoting his next stop in Vancouver, Canada.
Also at the Saturday night concert, the Grammy Award-winning artist premiered a new trailer for his upcoming HBO series "The Idol". The upcoming six-episode drama is "set against the backdrop of the music industry and centers on a self-help guru and leader of a modern-day cult who develops a complicated relationship with an up-and-coming pop idol."
In addition to Abel "The Weeknd" Tesfaye, the series stars Lily-Rose Depp, BLACKPINK's member Jennie, Troye Sivan, Hank Azaria, Moses Sumney, Jane Adams, Dan Levy, Jennie Ruby Jane, Eli Roth, Rachel Sennott, Hari Nef, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Mike Dean, Ramsey and many more. Co-created by The Weeknd, Reza Fahim as well as "Euphoria" creator Sam Levinson, the show still has no a release date.
