It wasn’t a good day for The Weeknd.

On 3 September, the Canadian singer-songwriter — born Abel Makkonen Tesfaye — was only a few songs into the second night of his sold-out After Hours til Dawn tour stop at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, when he felt his voice “go.”

The top-selling artist decided to abruptly end the show and explain it directly to the audience.“I can’t give you the concert I want to give you. I’m going to make sure everyone’s good, gets your money back, and I’ll do a show real soon for you guys. But I wanted to come out and personally apologize and not tweet it or Instagram it.“I wanted you guys to know that I can’t give you what I want to give you. I apologize. I’m so sorry.”

According to, fans began to console the four-time Grammy winner by singing “Save Your Tears” as they exited the stadium. The Weeknd recorded the track in 2021 in collaboration with Ariana Grande. While a new date for the canceled show has yet to be announced, the After Hours til Dawn Tour is expected to proceed to Mexico, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

The Weeknd is likewise wearing a producer’s and director’s hat on HBO’s The Idol starring Lily Rose Depp and Blackpink’s Jennie.
