After Losing His Voice, The Weekend Was Forced To Cut Short His Second Show At The Los Angeles Stadium.
On Saturday (September 3), The Weeknd was performing the second of two sold-out nights at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium when he suddenly lost his voice a few songs into the set and had to cancel the rest of the show.
The Weeknd was performing “Can’t Feel My Face” when he became unable to sing and had to stop, telling the audience, “I can’t give you the concert I want to give you.” I’ll check in on everyone to make sure they’re okay, refund your money, and put on a show for you as soon as possible, but I wanted to apologise to you guys in person rather than on Twitter or Instagram. To be completely honest with you, I felt it was necessary to inform you that there were some things I simply could not provide for you. I deeply regret any inconvenience this may have caused. I truly apologise.”
Fans left SoFi Stadium singing “Save Your Tears,” The Weeknd’s number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2021.
The Weeknd’s performance the night before was described by Billboard as “the singer, director, creator, composer, and star of his own movie.” The Ethiopian-American has won the hearts of listeners everywhere with hits like “Gasoline,” “Can’t Feel My Face,” and “Blinding Lights,” and Hollywood hasn’t seen the last of him.”
To commemorate the tour’s long-awaited start, the Los Angeles stops collaborated with Postmates and Monty’s Good Burger to provide customers with a special treat. The Weeknd curated and provided inspiration for a special meal at the trendy Los Angeles vegan restaurant. The meal includes a double Impossible burger on a brioche bun with chipotle ketchup and pickles, tater tots with spicy habanero dipping sauce, and an activated charcoal lemonade. Only Postmates app users could take advantage of the $27.99 deal from September 1 to September 3, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the XO Humanitarian Fund.
The Weeknd had planned to return to the road in January 2022 after postponing his 2020 tour into 2021 and then again due to the pandemic. He has since cancelled his 2022 arena tour in favour of performing in stadiums.
Despite high expectations, the stadium tour got off to a rocky start when it began in July. The original July 8 opening date in his hometown of Toronto was pushed back due to a problem with Rogers’ mobile service. Everything had gone off without a hitch until Saturday night, the final show of the 18-show tour. The tour will now make stops in Mexico, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
