Nearly two years after the Astroworld tragedy, which involved his tragic Houston concert that resulted in 10 deaths and hundreds more injuries, Travis Scott is preparing to perform once more.
The rapper said on Wednesday that his “Utopia – Circus Maximus” tour will begin on October 11 in Charlotte, North Carolina, and end in December in Toronto, Canada, after performing in a total of 28 North American locations.
The tour comes after Scott’s live concert earlier this month in the Circus Maximus in Rome, Italy, which 60,000 tickets in two days and caused seismic fears.
Following the deadly Astroworld Festival, which the rapper both organised and headlined, Scott has announced his first official tour.
The audience members present for Scott’s performance were squashed, and many were gasping for air as they crammed close to the stage, quickly resulting in mayhem. Later, the unrest prompted officials to declare the concert a “mass casualty event.”
The Houston district attorney’s office cleared Scott of all criminal charges in late June of this year, district attorney Kim Ogg announced at a press conference at the time. He has, however, been the target of numerous civil lawsuits filed by the families of the victims.
After a tragic event, Scott issued a statement in which he stated his “distraught by the situation and desperately wishes to share his condolences and provide aid to (the victims) as soon as possible.”
Following the release of his fourth studio album “Utopia” last month, Scott’s rap album has spent the last four weeks at the top of Billboard’s Hot 200 Albums chart.
A portion of every ticket sold will go to Scott’s Cactus Jack Foundation, an organisation that supports Houston youth through toy drives, scholarship programmes, and by helping to pay for education and creative endeavours, according to a news release on Wednesday. The tour will “transport fans into an unparalleled audiovisual experience,” the release claims.
The “Utopia – Circus Maximus” tour’s tickets will go on sale this Thursday at 10 AM local time.
