A viewer said there was chaos following the cancellation, pointing out that SoFi staff rushed for a massive crowd release that happened earlier than expected.
The Weeknd started the first concert at the SoFi Stadium on Friday, the newest leg of his After Hours Til Dawn Tour. The first night in Los Angeles gave an appearance from his Idol co-actor Lili-Rose Depp, who presented the singer while in character, referring to the weekend as his character’s name, Tedros.
“I’ve had a tough year, and there were moments where I didn’t know I was going to make it,” Depp stated, per Billboard reports.
“But then I thought of you and your grace. Tonight is incredibly special, because I have the opportunity to introduce you to the love of my life – the man who pulled me through the darkest hours and into the light. Tedros, will you please join us?”
The following dates for the tour will be at Toronto’s Rogers Centre on September 22 and 23.
