It's no secret that Kanye West is a perfectionist.

The rapper cut short his sixth and final show at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. Thursday night. As his performance of "Only One" was reaching its end, he asked the house crew to turn the lights on. "My voice is so hoarse," West said. "I can't finish the show...I can't let y'all have a show where I can't perform for you." The crowd initially booed before chanting the rapper's name. "I'm very sorry. I love you," he said. "I'll give everyone a refund. I'll do better next time." 

West had performed 45 minutes of his set when he decided the show was over. E! News has since reached out to reps for West and Live Nation to get further details regarding the refunds.

West's sold-out shows at The Forum have been a hit with celebrities, with the likes of Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Beckham, Chris Brown, Desiigner, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, DJ Khaled, Hilary Duff, Halsey, Kate Hudson, Leny Kravitz, John Mayer, Katy Perry, Kelly Rowland, Bob Saget, Jaden Smith, Harry Styles, Tyga, Usher, Pete Wentz and Ariel Winter in attendance.

The next stop on West's Saint Pablo tour is scheduled for Nov. 17 in San Jose, Calif.

In mid-October, Live Nation announced that West would be extending his nationwide tour, playing 21 more shows. With the added dates, the tour will end in Brooklyn on New Year's Eve.

When E! News' Ken Baker spoke to West backstage after one of his gigs in August, the rapper revealed he had hoped to "take the concert experience to another level." To do that, he had his stage suspended above a mosh pit, so fans could better experience his show. "I wanted people to get into it and have a fun time, make it not be just about watching the artist, but people watching their friends and singing along to the lyrics and being able to see themselves, their outfits. It's not just about what you're seeing on the screen or what you're seeing me doing up on the stage, but what you and your friends are doing," West said, adding, "I want people to come to the Pablo shows and know it's just going to be the best time they've had in their life."
