The Weeknd is on the road to recovery and will return to live performances just days after abruptly canceling his sold-out Saturday concert at SoFi Stadium.
On Tuesday, the “Save Your Tears” singer assured fans that he would continue his “After Hours Til Dawn” tour with his two upcoming shows in Toronto on September 22nd and 23rd.
“The doctor says my voice is safe and with rest I will be solid and able to put on the show my TORONTO fans are waiting for,” said The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, in one Instagram post.
The star of upcoming Netflix series The Idol was briefly out of action after losing his voice during Saturday’s SoFi concert. After three songs in his set, The Weeknd told fans he had to call off the show.
In the middle of “Can’t Feel My Face,” The Weeknd walked off the stage. Another number played in its place before the house lights came on. He returned to the stage to find that he had lost his voice and apologized for the show’s cancellation.
“I’ll make sure everyone is okay, you get your money back,” he told the audience. “But I’ll be doing a show for you guys very soon.”
Later that night he gave one statement on Twitter He explained that his “heart sank” when he lost his voice. He told concert-goers in LA he would “make it up to you.”
“The LA date will be finalized soon,” he wrote Tuesday. “Thank you for all the love and understanding I have been shown. I love you all so much… XO”
