Fans in Toronto upset as Rogers outage forces postponement of The Weeknd concert

The Weeknd’s concert at Rogers Centre had to be postponed due to a nationwide Rogers service failure, leaving thousands of attendees in downtown Toronto dissatisfied.

To watch the Toronto-born singer-songwriter perform during his After Hours Till Dawn Tour, fans had been waiting in line all afternoon.

But then, just before the performance was set to begin, concert organisers announced over the public address system that the event had been postponed.

At the announcement, several irate Rogers Centre attendees booed.

The Weeknd was “ruined by Rogers,”

Rogers ruined The Weeknd, they cancelled the show, claimed a man going by the name of Sheldon who declined to disclose his last name to CBC News.

His partner, a woman named Anna, remarked, “Their systems are down, they can’t check tickers or sell goods.”

The disruptions made it difficult for many people to travel, she continued.

Someone shouting up the line informed Olivia Sabic, Aiden Bilon, and Alexia Liakos that the show had been cancelled.

Everyone departed once a long line formed, according to Liakos.

Everyone claimed that the concert had been cancelled before we learned of the announcement, according to Sabic.

The fact that Bell and Rogers are the only two major networks in Canada raises alarm because if one fails, everything tends to fall apart, according to Bilon.

“To say I’m disappointed is an understatement.”

Soon after the postponement was announced, Chris Thaung, Hannah Gojdos, and Quinn Danielis observed supporters migrating in the opposite way.

This is the third time The Weeknd’s show has been postponed, according to Gojdos, who added that “disappointment is an understatement.”

Danielis added, “This is the Rogers Centre; they have had since 6 a.m. to think out alternative solutions. It is completely unacceptable.

After hearing the news, a large number of spectators milled around the stadium’s exterior for a while, but the gathering eventually dwindled and dispersed.

Tickets will be honoured later, the venue says.

Rogers Centre expressed regret for the inconvenience in a statement.

According to a statement, “We regret to report that The Weeknd tour stop at Rogers Centre has been postponed to a later date owing to service disruptions effecting venue operations.”

A new show date will be announced as soon as it is known.

“Tickets will be honoured, and a replacement show date will be given as soon as possible. We regret the inconvenience and recognise how disappointing this is.
