Kanye West's sixth and final show at the Forum in Inglewood, California was cut short on Thursday night. West was closing out his performance of the Paul McCartney collab "Only One" when he started losing his voice, E! Newsreported. To ensure fans weren't subjected to a subpar show, West then decided to call the whole thing off.

"My voice is so hoarse," West told the sold-out audience. "I can't finish the show. I can't let y'all have a show where I can't perform for you." Though the audience initially voiced frustration at West's decision, they quickly started expressing their support by chanting his name. "I'm very sorry," West said. "I love you. I'll give everyone a refund. I'll do better next time." West had made it roughly 45 minutes into his set before making the call to cut it short.

The Saint Pablo tour has proven to be a rousing success, including six Forum shows in a row that saw a wide variety of high-profile attendees (and moshers). In addition to appearances by wife Kim Kardashian and other members of the Kardashian crew, the multiple dates in the greater Los Angeles area have attracted DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Desiigner, Katy Perry, Jaden Smith, Pete Wentz, Harry Styles, and Bob Saget.

West's next scheduled Saint Pablo date is Nov. 17 at the SAP Center in San Jose.
