The Weeknd barely got started performing the second of his 2 sold-out shows in L.A. Saturday night when he lost his voice.
SoFi Stadium was packed with 70,000 fans when 15 minutes in the band started playing "Can't Feel My Face,” but the Weeknd was nowhere to be seen.
Turns out he was backstage as the song played, trying to figure out what to do because had had no voice. Something happened during the previous song because he yelled and apparently it blew out his vocal cords.
When the song ended, he came on stage and told the crowd while fighting back tears, "I don't know what happened when I screamed, but I just lost my voice. 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 promised everyone he would get their money back and reschedule soon.
After he left the venue, he posted, "My voice went out during the first song and I’m devastated. Felt it go and my heart dropped. I promise I'll make it up to you with a new date.”
