Eight months after the deadly crowd movement of the Astroworld festival, the American rapper put his concert in New York on hold after seeing fans climbing metal joists.
Eight months after the deadly stampede at the Astroworld festival, Travis Scott is cautiously returning to the stage. This Monday, the American rapper was performing as the opening act for artist Meek Mill in New York, but he was quickly forced to pause his outdoor show for the safety of fans.
During the concert, some spectators climbed over metal beams in order to have better visibility on the stage. Travis Scott therefore waited until they were all on the ground to resume his performance.
“You’re all going to have to come down,” said the Sicko Mode interpreter, in a video relayed by USA Today.
1500 complaints filed
This incident obviously echoes the deadly stampede during the Astroworld festival. Last November, eight people were killed in a gigantic crowd movement during this musical event organized by Travis Scott in Texas.
Since this tragedy, the husband of Kylie Jenner had so far been quite discreet. Still under the influence of more than 1,500 complaints filed by victims of Astroworld and their relatives, the American rapper was nevertheless to return to the stage during the Day N Vegas festival in Las Vegas but his performance was canceled for “reasons logistics”, according to the organizers.
