The Weeknd stepped back on stage at Sophie Stadium on Saturday, two months after his concert was cut short in tears due to vocal problems in the middle of a performance.
The 32-year-old singer joked with fans and claimed he was “back at the scene of the crime,” but put on an incredible show to sold-out crowds as part of his After Hours Till Dawn tour.
During their September 3 performance at Inglewood Stadium, the Blinding Lights artist ‘lost’ his voice at the beginning of the show, causing him to abruptly exit the stage just 18 minutes into the show.

The entertainer, whose real name is Abel McConnen Tesfaye, began his concert to an enthusiastic and excited audience.
He opened his show with the set list for the 3 September concert, which featured the tune Can’t Feel My Face followed by three tracks from his Dawn FM album.

‘How is it feeling tonight, is it feeling good? I love you. And the party’s just begun,’ Abel said as the crowd began to cheer.
