Travis Scott Plans First Major Post-Astroworld Concert

Since the tragic events at Astroworld in November of last year, Travis Scott is scheduled to conduct his first solo concert with individual tickets. On August 6, Scott will perform in London’s 02 Arena.
Although Scott has already performed in front of an audience after the tragedy, the show will be the first of his own ticketed concerts.

He previously performed a late-night set in Miami in May and at private gatherings for a pre-Oscars party and a Coachella afterparty. This year, Travis Scott has slowly made a comeback to performing live, and this fall, he will headline Primavera Sound festivals in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Santiago, Chile; and So Paulo, Brazil. Scott’s headlining slot for Day n’ Vegas, his first American event since Astroworld, was revealed earlier this month.

Resulting in the deaths of 10 people and injuries to hundreds more following a violent audience surge at Scott’s Astroworld Festival in Houston last November, Live Nation, Scoremore, and other defendants, including Scott, are facing serious hundreds of lawsuits and up to thousands of millions of dollars in possible losses.

Travis Scott’s Response to the Tragedy

Since the incident, Scott and his group have categorically rejected any responsibility for it and established a nonprofit organization called Project HEAL, whose goal is to address concert security.
“My team and I created Project HEAL to take much-needed action towards supporting real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be,” In March, Travis Scott announced the foundation in a post on Instagram. “I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever.”

Tericia Blount, whose 9-year-old grandson Ezra Blount was one of the victims who died as a direct result of their injury after Astroworld earlier criticized the organization in an effort to get the support of the general public. It’s a PR stunt. He’s pretty much trying to sway the jurors before they’re even assembled,” Blount told Rolling Stone in March.

“He’s trying to make himself look good, but it doesn’t look that way to someone with our eyes. What we’re seeing is that he’s done wrong, and now he’s trying to be the good guy and trying to give his own verdict on safety.”

The 20,000-seat O2 Arena will host Scott’s performance, which will be organized by AEG and UK event promoters SJM.
