“And we’re back at the scene of the crime, I guess,” the Weeknd said a few songs into his set at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium on Saturday night.

“How does it sound tonight – does it sound good? I love you. And the party has just started.”

Saturday’s sold-out show was a make-up gig for the Weeknd’s canceled SoFi date on September 3, when the 32-year-old superstar, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, stopped his performance after 18 minutes. Mentioning the vocal problem, he had cried and apologized, then left the stage for good, because the 70,000 fans present were left disappointed and confused.

“I personally want to apologize to you. I don’t know what happened when I screamed, but I just lost my voice,” Tesfaye explained that night. “It’s killing me. I don’t want to stop the show. But I can’t give you the concert I want to give you now. I’ll make sure everything’s fine – get your money back – but I’ll do the show for you right away.”

“Real soon” arrived two and a half months later, on Nov. 26, with the Weeknd’s rescheduled LA dates on his After Hours Til Dawn Tour. Tesfaye kicked off his 90-minute set and Fajar FM tracks “Gasoline,” “Sacrifice,” and “How Can I Make You Love Me?,” then audience members cheered as he ripped into “Can’t Feel My Face” — the biggest hit on his set list that caused trouble. and forced him to quit mid-song back in September, after his “voice gave out” and his “heart dropped”.

fire this time, everything thankfully went out without a hitch. At one point early during Saturday’s show, Tesfaye – who was cleared by doctors to perform again shortly after the LA incident – even raised his microphone standing above his head and pumped it up and down like a barbell, as if to prove he was back. in the form of a fight.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for fighting with this, with me, and for coming back and showing me so much. I know you’re coming back,” the Weeknd told the rallying SoFi audience on Saturday. “I love you so much, and I don’t know what else to say. … Los Angeles, I love you!”
