Even when it became obvious that the entertainment was done, several spectators stayed seated, seemingly in a state of bewilderment or confusion.
Later, The Weeknd issued an explanation for the incident, saying, “My voice went out during the first song and I’m distraught.” I felt it leave, and my stomach fell.
If any of my admirers here were offended by this, please accept my sincerest apologies. I’ll try to make it up to you by taking you out on a new date.

The Weeknd performed both old and new material at his opening night show at SoFi on Friday, which music critic Mikael Wood praised as “crisp and pulverizing loud.”
Wood went on to write that the singer’s “singing carried emotion with a laser-like intensity, particularly in the wistful ‘Out of Time’ and ‘I Feel It Coming,’ even amid the boomy atmosphere of a stadium.”
On Saturday night, it was unknown how serious the Weeknd’s vocal issue would be or if any more tour dates would be canceled as a result.
There were two further shows scheduled after the one in Toronto on the 22nd and 23rd of September, with the first one happening on September 13 in Johanneshov, Sweden.
