The Weeknd cancels a show in Los Angeles in the middle of a song due to vocal problems.
The Weeknd abruptly ended his Los Angeles concert on Saturday night, citing vocal issues.
According to the Los Angeles Times, he walked off the stage in the middle of a performance of his hit “Can’t Feel My Face.” Another song began to play briefly before the lights came on at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.
According to a video shared on Twitter by a concertgoer, The Weekend then returned to the stage to apologise for his vocal issues and promised the audience a refund.
“I’m going to make sure everyone is okay, and you’ll get your money back,” he assured the audience. “But I’ll do a show for you guys soon.”
“I can’t give you everything I want to,” he added.
The Weeknd explained what happened in a tweet late Saturday.

“During the first song, my voice went out, and I’m devastated,” he wrote. “My heart stopped when I felt it leave. Please accept my heartfelt apologies to my fans. I promise to make amends with a new date.”
The “After Hours Til Dawn” tour will resume on September 22 in Toronto. Due to the pandemic, the tour was previously postponed twice.
