The Weekend abruptly walked off the stage during his concert in Los Angeles, ending up canceling the show, reported Los Angeles Times.

The singer was in the middle of a performance of his hit "Can't Feel My Face" when he walked off the stage, the Los Angeles Times reports. Another song started playing briefly, then the lights came up in SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. “My voice went out during the first song and I’m devastated,” the “Blinding Lights” singer tweeted late Saturday. “Felt it go and my heart stopped. My deepest apologies to my fans here. I promise I’ll make it up to you with a new date.”


After making a sudden exit, he returned back on the stage to apologize and explain the cancellation to the audience. He mentioned that everyone will get a refund for the show and he promise to make it up by returning some other day. "I'm going to make sure everyone is good, you'll get your money back," he told the crowd. "But I'll do a show real soon for you guys. I can't give you what I want to give you," he added.


The renewed dates for the concert haven't been released yet, but the next stop in the “After Hours Til Dawn” tour is set for Sept. 22 in Toronto. 

Before stepping up on the stage Weekend teased that the Inglewood audience would receive an exclusive look at his upcoming show “The Idol,” an upcoming HBO Max starring himself and Lily-Rose Depp.


“IDOL EXCLUSIVE IN LA TONIGHT,” he tweeted Saturday afternoon, alongside a photo of himself and Depp in a recording studio.

The Weeknd began the first of the SoFi Stadium shows on Friday, which was the latest leg of his After Hours Til Dawn Tour. His first evening in Los Angeles featured an appearance from his The Idol costar Lily-Rose Depp, who introduced the singer while in character, calling the Weeknd by his character's name, Tedros. "I've had a tough year, and there were moments where I didn't know I was going to make it," Depp said, according to Billboard. "But then I thought of you and your grace. Tonight is incredibly special because I have the opportunity to introduce you to the love of my life — the man who pulled me through the darkest hours and into the light. Tedros, will you please join us?"
