Travis Scott loves performing in front of his fans and his fans love seeing him rap onstage as well. However, Travis Scott’s latest concert did not go as planned at all. It seems Scott was warned about the Astroworld crowd beforehand as well.
As reported earlier, Travis Scott’s first night of his Astroworld concert in Houston ended in the deaths of 8 people after a stampede broke out. On top of that, more than 300 people also suffered injuries.
Around 9 PM, people began surging toward the stage. People got crushed, which led to mass hysteria. All of this led to 8 people losing their lives in the tragic incident. In addition to that, 11 people went into cardiac arrest and were rushed to the hospital.
According to the New York Times, Travis Scott was warned by Houston Police Chief Troy Finner of the dangers of continuing the performance. This was said prior to the Astroworld concert. Scott continued with the festival and a crowd surge ensued, which led to so many deaths.
”If somebody would have said, ‘Hey, shut this thing down and turn on the lights until this thing gets corrected’ — and that coming from the person with the mic — I think could have been very helpful.”
Travis Scott is currently facing a lawsuit over the tragedy and even Drake and Live Natio were mentioned in the lawsuit. Fans even tried to stop the concert when the riot started during the concert but to no avail. We hope such a horrific incident never happens again.
