UPDATE: The Weeknd Cancels NYC Debut Show

Turns out American fans will have to wait a bit longer to see The Weeknd live, as his first U.S. performance at VICE.com’s Upfront Extravaganza has officially been cancelled.

Vice has released the following statement: “The Weeknd has cancelled their scheduled New York City performance. We’re disappointed, but are here for him when he’s ready. We’re big fans.”

Since then, The Weeknd has taken to his official Twitter account to address the issue. “Sorry fans.don’t believe the hype and the blogs.there is no show or rescheduling in nyc thanks to certain publications getting too excited,” tweeted the Toronto singer. Perhaps someone spoke too soon before the ink dried?

Either way, we hope to see The Weeknd in the states some time soon!
