The Weeknd (32) prematurely ended a concert in tears on Saturday night. The singer performed in front of more than 70,000 fans at the sold-out SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. As reported by several US media, the 32-year-old abruptly left the stage during his third song. A little later he came back and announced that he would not be able to finish the concert.
A little later he spoke up on Twitter and explained the reason for the canceled concert. Already during the first song his voice "failed" and he was "devastated". "I felt her gone and my heart stopped," wrote The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye. "My deepest apologies to my fans here. I promise I'll make it up to you with a new date."
It is not yet known whether his voice problems will affect other planned concerts. The day before, The Weeknd had also performed at SoFi Stadium. According to "Entertainment Tonight", several of his celebrity friends were in the audience, including models Kendall Jenner (26), Camila Monroe (25) and Lily-Rose Depp (23) and "Euphoria" creator Sam Levinson (37). The Weeknd is working with Depp and Levinson on the HBO series The Idol. The singer and the model star in the drama.
