Travis Scott books first gigs since Astroworld festival tragedy – Reuters

Travis Scott has booked his first big gigs since 10 people were killed at his Astroworld music festival in Texas last year.

The rapper, who is dating reality TV star Kylie Jenner, came under the spotlight after eight crowd members died in a crush on the first night of his event at NRG Park in Houston in November 2021 .

Two other revelers died of their injuries in hospital in the days following the event.

Now, Travis is getting back to business, booking his stage comeback at E11EVEN Miami nightclub in Florida on May 7.

He is also set to lead the Primavera Festival in South America, which visits countries like Brazil, Chile and Argentina. Travis will play three shows in November alongside singer Lorde.

Other artists performing at the festival include Arctic Monkeys and Bjork.

According to TMZ, Travis plans to book more shows over the summer, but the Miami gig will mark his first big show since the Astroworld tragedy.

He hasn’t stopped performing altogether in the past few months — he once made a short guest appearance at a Coachella after-party on April 17.

He also performed at a private pre-Oscars party in Bel-Air on March 26.

The Astroworld festival tragedy injured 300 spectators in a terrifying crush as fans made their way to the stage. About 25 people were hospitalized and there were 10 deaths.
