In addition to this, he also promised his fans to return back their money and personally apologised while struggling with his voice. He said: I wanted you guys to know that I can’t give you what I want to give you. I apologize. I’m so sorry.”

The Weekend’s fans cheered at the tip of their voice as the star added: “You know how much this kills me. I love you. Thank you so much.” After personally apologizing to his fans, “The Blinding Lights star also posted today on Twitter: “My voice went out during the first song and I’m devastated. Felt it go and my heart dropped.” Well, the good news is that he has promised to come out with a new date!

The Weeknd’s Journey…

The Weeknd, born Abel Makkonen Tesfaye has travelled a long way to reach where he stands now.  The Canadian-based singer started his career by releasing music on YouTube in 2009. After almost two years, he co-founded XO record label and released several mixtapes like “Thursday, “Echoes of Silence” and “House of Balloons” which brought his alternative R&B and contemporary style of music in limelight.

In 2012, The Weeknd signed with Republic Records and released several mixtapes which formed a part of the compilation “Trilogy”. His album “Beauty Behind The Madness” fetched him a Grammy and remains the year’s best-selling album. “Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills” from this album were chart-topping singles on the Billboard Hot 100.

Since then, there was no stopping him. After making several chart-topping albums and singles like “Blinding Lights”, “Heartless” and “Save Your Tears”, the Weeknd remains one of the world’s best-selling music artists. As far as his accolades are concerned, the 32-year-old star has won 20 Billboard Awards, 4 Grammys, two MTV Video Awards, 17 Juno Awards and several nominations.

Fans are saddened yet hopeful about what happened at the SoFi Stadium but are hopeful that they’d be more than compensated as their favourite star comes out with a new date. The humbled artist was cheered by his fans as they sang his “Save Your Tears” in unison when he announced the cancellation.
