As the equipment crashed to the floor, The Weeknd didn't miss a beat. He continued to sing "Party Monster," off his album Starboy.

On his Instagram, the "Call Out My Name" singer also posted a clip of himself performing in the pouring rain. "MONTERREY WAS A STORM BUT IT WAS BEAUTIFUL," he captioned the video. "MEXICO IS SO ALIVE."
