Fans of The Weekend were blinded by the not-so-light news that their fave artist had to cancel his show after losing his voice mid-concert.
70,000 concert-goers were shocked when the singer was forced to stop his show while performing his hit song ‘I Can’t Feel My Face’ at SoFi stadium and told the crowd he would not be able to put on “the concert I want to give you right now.
In a clip posted to Twitter by a fan who captured the announcement, you can hear the singer’s strain and sadness in cancelling the show.
He tearfully explained: “I personally want to apologize to you guys. I don’t know what just happened when I screamed, but I just lost my voice.”
“I’m going to make sure everybody’s good, you’ll get your money back, but I wanted to come out and personally apologize, and not tweet it or Instagram it or whatever.”
In all fairness, we do love that he announced the cancellation in person, instead of mysteriously posting online and waiting for fans to react.
“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.”
He finished by saying, “I want you guys to know that I can’t give you what I want to give you. I’m so sorry. I love you guys. Thank you so much.”
The Weeknd later took to Instagram, writing, “My voice went out during the first song and I’m devastated.”
He added, “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.”
It’s still unknown how the singer's vocal condition is now, but the next show as part of his ‘After Hours Til Dawn Tour’ is scheduled for September 22, in Toronto.
A new date for The Weeknd’s Los Angeles show has yet to be announced.
Here’s hoping he has a quick recovery and doesn’t need to postpone any more shows.
