Megan Thee Stallion cancels homecoming show because of Astroworld

Megan Thee Stallion has cancelled her planned homecoming in Houston following the Astroworld tragedy.

Last month, a crowd crush during Travis Scott’s headline set caused ten attendees of the Houston festival to lose their lives. With this horrifying event fresh in mind, Megan has decided that it wouldn’t be suitable to perform in the city so soon after the incident.

In a statement given to the Houston Chronicle, Megan has explained her decision. “Out of respect for the lives lost in Houston earlier this month, I have decided to cancel my show at 713 Music Hall on Dec 3,” she wrote.

“Houston is still healing and it’s important that our community be given the appropriate time to grieve. My heart goes out to all the families that are suffering during this difficult time.”

Megan’s tour will start again on December 14th when she appears at Capital One’s Jingle Ball in Washington D.C. before heading to Atlanta, Detroit and Sunrise, Florida.

Meanwhile, Scott is facing numerous lawsuits from the families of the Astroworld victims. Earlier this week, it also emerged that half of the families rejected his proposal to cover the costs of their loved one’s funeral.

Philip Corboy, attorney for the families of Jacob Jurinek and Franco Patino, stated that Scott’s decision to go via a team with his proposal made them feel like the move wasn’t with sincere intentions.

He said, “All he was trying to do was trying to lessen the public outcry on his case. If he’s trying to impress upon the families that he’s sincere and has concern for them and realize that funerals can be expensive, what Scott’s team did is not the way to do it.”
