The Weeknd was grateful to return to Sofi Stadium for Thanksgiving weekend after abruptly ending his previous Inglewood show mid-concert.
“Looks like we’re back on the scene,” the Canadian singer joked a few songs into Saturday’s set. “How does it sound tonight? Sounds good? I love you. The party’s just started, baby. Let’s go.”
In September, the pop musician stunned fans by canceling his sold-out SoFi concert just a few songs into the show’s start after losing his voice during the opening number, “Alone Again.” When he hit the song “Can’t Feel My Face,” the singer was forced to stop performing.
“I’m devastated,” the Weeknd said in a statement at the time. “I felt it go and my heart sank. My deepest apologies to my fans here. I promise I’ll make it up to you with a new date.”
True to his word, the Save Your Tears artist has two makeup shows scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday as part of his After Hours Til Dawn Tour. During Saturday’s performance, the Grammy winner repeatedly thanked the city of LA for their support.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for pushing through … this with me and for coming back and showing me so much love,” he said in concert footage shared on Instagram.
“I knew you would come back… I love you guys so much and I don’t know what else to say. …Los Angeles, I f— love you!”
