The weekend was forced to take the rest of the weekend off.
On Sept. 3, a day after performing a sold-out first show in Los Angeles, the “Blinding Lights” singer abruptly ended his second gig at the city’s SoFi Stadium, announcing that he had lost his voice.
“I can’t give you the gig I want to give you right now,” The Weeknd told the crowd, as seen in a video posted to Twitter by photographer KNBC Kenny Holmes. “I’ll make sure everyone is okay. Get your money back.”
He added, “I’m sorry, I’m really sorry, I love you so much.”
Later that night, The Weeknd caught on Twitter to further explain the situation and vowed to make it up to his fans.
“My voice died out during the first song and I’m devastated” he wrote. “I felt it go and my heart sank. My sincere apologies to my fans here. I promise to catch you up with a new date.”
