Days after abruptly ending his sold-out concert at SoFi Stadium in Southern California because his voice went out, The Weeknd said Monday his health has improved and he’ll soon return to the stage.
“Doctor says my voice is safe and with rest I’ll be solid and able to bring the show my Toronto fans are waiting for,” the singer-songwriter tweeted Tuesday. “LA date is being worked out soon. Thank you SO much for all the love and understanding that’s come my way. I love you all so much.”

On Saturday, the “Blinding Lights” artist was performing his third song of the night at Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium when he lost his voice and ended the show.
Some disappointed fans took to social media to say they were upset after spending money on tickets, parking and gas to get to the show.
Video posted on Twitter showed the singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, returned to the stage to explain what happened.
“I want to personally come out and apologize to you guys. I don’t know what happened when I screamed, but I just lost my voice. This is killing me,” he said. “I don’t want to stop the show, but I can’t give you the concert that I want to give you right now. I’m going to make sure that everybody is going to get your money back, but I’ll do a show real soon for you guys.”
He later posted a statement on Twitter saying his “heart dropped” when he lost his voice.
“My voice went out during the first song and I’m devastated. Felt it go and my heart dropped,” he tweeted. “My deepest apologies to my fans here. I promise I’ll make it up to you with a new date.”
