Judging by photos posted on social media, the vehicle was completely destroyed.Fans leaving the concert posted extensive footage of the blaze on social media, with the inevitable “The Weeknd’s concert was so hot that the stadium caught fire”-type comments.
The Weeknd posted photos from the show on his socials — containing Las Vegas-referencing lines from his smash 2019 single “Blinding Lights” — but did not mention the fire.
