According to Fox News, local firemen arrived on the scene just before 11 p.m. and immediately brought the blaze under control.
According to the news, a vehicle carrying souvenirs caught fire in the stadium’s parking lot, but neither the police nor stadium officials responded quickly to demands for information. It appears from the photographs shared online that the automobile was written out in the accident.

As expected, concertgoers who were leaving the venue broadcast extensive videos of the fire to social media alongside comments like, “The Weeknd’s concert was so hot that the stadium caught fire.”
The Weeknd shared photographs from the event on social media, with lyrics from his 2019 hit song “Blinding Lights” that refer to Las Vegas, but he made no mention of the fire.
The Weeknd also debuted a new trailer for his upcoming HBO series “The Idol” at the show. In the trailer, you can see glimpses of him, Lily-Rose Depp, Suzanna Son, Troye Sivan, Moses Sumney, Jane Adams, Dan Levy, Jennie Ruby Jane, Eli Roth, Rachel Sennott, Hari Nef, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Mike Dean, Ramsey, and Hank Azaria.
The teaser promises the show will be “coming soon,” although the launch date has not yet been announced.
The Weeknd’s “After Hours Til Dawn” stadium tour starts Tuesday in Vancouver and concludes with two gigs at Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles on September 2-3.
An outage of the Rogers wireless network affected communications throughout the country, including the venue’s ticketing and sales systems, forcing them to reschedule the tour’s opening night, July 8, at Toronto’s Rogers Stadium until September 22.
