Tens of thousands of fans left SoFi stadium in disappointment Saturday night when The Weeknd stopped his performance after just three songs.
“I want to personally apologize to the audience,” The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, told to the crowd. “I don’t know what happened when I screamed, but I just lost my voice. This is killing me. I don’t want to stop the show but I can’t give you the concert I want to give you right now.”
“I’m going to make sure everybody’s good and (you) get your money back, and I’ll do a show real soon,” he said to gasps and boos.
The Weeknd later shared this message on social media:
“My voice went out during the first song and I’m devasted. 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.”
No new concert date has been announced.
The “Blinding Lights” singer was visiting Sofi Stadium on his “After Hours Til Dawn” tour. His next scheduled tour date is Sept. 13 in Sweden.
