If you’re a fan of The Weeknd and missed his recent After Hours Til Dawn Tour, then you’re in luck.

The Canadian singer and HBO Max have both announced the new concert special, The Weekend: Live at SoFi Stadium, which arrives on Feb. 25.

It seems like the concert special is also a way for The Weeknd to make it up to his fans. Back in September, he had to cancel his second show in Los Angeles because he lost his voice—and SoFi Stadium is located in LA.

The incident happened minutes into his performance at SoFi, prompting The Weeknd to speak directly to his audience: “I personally want to apologize to you guys,” he told the crowd. “I don’t know what just happened when I screamed, but I just lost my voice. This is killing me. I don’t want to stop the show. But I can’t give you the concert I want to give you right now. I’m going make sure everybody’s good. … But I wanted to come out and personally apologize. … I’m so sorry. I love you guys.”

Last month, The Weeknd shared his video for his Avatar: The Way of Water soundtrack cut, “Nothing Is Lost (You Give Me Strength),” which shows his own take on Pandora—the fictional setting for James Cameron’s latest movie.
