Travis Scott performs first public concert since Astroworld tragedy

Travis Scott performed his first public concert since the Astroworld tragedy over the weekend when he played in a Miami nightclub.

Tragically, last November, ten fans were killed at his festival in Texas after a stampede in the crowd, and hundreds more were left seriously injured. The rapper has been scrutinised heavily over his role in events, and he’s stayed away from public life.

His concert in Miami at E11even nightclub, situated in downtown Miami, reportedly took place during the early hours of Sunday. The club is known for being open 24 hours a day.

Scott’s performance coincided with Miami staging a Grand Prix over the weekend as the ongoing 2022 Formula One World Championship made its way to the United States.

His set lasted around 45 minutes, including hits such as ‘Goosebumps’ and ‘Sicko Mode’. Additionally, he was joined by Migos’ Quavo for a rendition of their 2017 collaboration, ‘Dubai Shit’.

Scott has incrementally been stepping out of the shadows and performed at after-parties and private events. He will also be headlining three Primavera Sound concerts in South America later this year.

The rapper will begin his return in São Paulo, Brazil, on November 6th, before performing a second date in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 12th, and finally wrapping up the Primavera run in Santiago, Chile, on November 13th.
