AceShowbiz - The Weeknd's recent concert did not go as expected. The "Blinding Lights" hitmaker was forced to cancel his show in Los Angeles after losing his voice, prompting disappointed fans to boo him while he was onstage.
The 32-year-old decided to stop his Saturday, September 3 gig after performing just three songs. "I don't want to stop the show. But I can't give you the concert I want to give you right now... I'll make sure everybody will get your money back," he told the crowd at SoFi Stadium.
"But I'll do a show real soon for you guys... I want to come out and personally apologize, and not tweet it or Instagram it or whatever," the Canadian crooner added. Before exiting the stage, he declared, "You know how much this kills me right now. I'm sorry. I love you guys. Thank you so much."
The Weeknd later doubled down on his apology on Twitter and Instagram Story. "My voice went out during the first song and I'm devastated," he lamented. "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 "Save Your Tears" singer had been playing back-to-back shows at SoFi Stadium as part of his "After Hours Til Dawn Tour". His next performance is set for September 22 in Toronto.
Just two weeks prior, a major fire erupted at The Weeknd's show in Las Vegas. He was performing 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 videos 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. Luckily, no injuries were reported from the incident as fans were seen remaining calm despite the flames.
