Update: The Weeknd took to his Instagram Stories after the postponement to share the statement: “I’m crushed & heartbroken. Been at the venue all day but it’s out of our hands because of the Rogers outage. Operations and safety are compromised and I tried my absolute best. This one hurts the most, and we will make this show happen, but unfortunately not tonight. I know how long you’ve been waiting and how hard a lot of you worked to make it to the show and experience this special moment with me.I can’t wait to see you all.”
The Weeknd was set to kick off his After Hours Till Dawn tour in his hometown of Toronto, Ontario, on Friday night (July 8), but the show was postponed after a widespread network outage at Rogers Communications Inc. paused mobile and internet access across Canada.
The official Twitter account for the baseball team Toronto Blue Jays, who also play at the Rogers Centre where the show was scheduled to take place, shared the statement: “We regret to announce that The Weeknd tour stop at Rogers Centre has been postponed due to service outages impacting venue operations. A new show date will be shared ASAP and tickets will be honoured. We understand how disappointing this is and apologize for the inconvenience.”
