The Weeknd is feeling the effects of a grueling tour schedule while on his “After Hours Til Dawn Tour.” 

The “Save your Tears” hitmaker was forced to abruptly end his performance in Los Angeles on Saturday night (Aug. 3), cutting short his sold-out show just three songs into his set. The Weeknd explained to fans that he lost his voice while on stage at the concert at Sofi Stadium. 

“This is killing me, I don’t want to stop the show,” Abel told the stunned audience. “But I can’t give you the concert I want to give you right now.”  

He continued, “I’m going to make sure everyone is good, you’ll get your money back. But I’ll do a show real soon for you guys.” The Weeknd explained that he wanted to give fans in attendance a personal apology rather than putting out a statement on social media.  

The Weeknd promised to make it up to the audience and vowed to return as soon as possible. 

“I’m going to make sure everyone is good; you’ll get your money back. But I’ll do a show real soon for you guys,” he added.
