Astroworld rapper Travis Scott has cancelled his Pyramids of Giza concert. The live performance in celebration of his upcoming Utopia project was planned to take place on July 28th. However, even after assuring fans it would take place, the emcee has decided to postpone the event.
In the lead-up to the concert, media outlets were preparing fans for a cancellation. However, in a statement, Live Nation refuted this by stating, “There have been no changes to Travis Scott’s show in Egypt; any reports to the contrary are false. We can’t wait to celebrate Utopia with you in Egypt!”
Several publications unveiled that Scott’s management was struggling to reach an agreement with Egypt’s Musicians’ Syndicate, who had attempted to revoke Scott’s permit. However, they succeeded.
Live Nation has explained to fans that they cancelled the event due to “complex production issues.” However, most are aware of the issues the entertainment agency was facing ahead of this performance.
Despite its cancellation, the ‘SICKO MODE’ artist has insisted it will happen in the near future. After the announcement, the musician took to social media, writing, “Egypt at the pyramids will happen. But due to demand and detail, logisticsThey just need a bit a time to set lay on lands. I will keep u posted on a date which will be soon love you alllll.”
The Utopia lyricist has also revealed that he has planned four more of these experiences at different locations worldwide. However, Live Nation has chosen to remain focused on their current issues and disclosed that “despite highest efforts,” the show “could not be constructed in the desert.”
The Pyramids of Giza are considered wonders of the world, and it is hard to imagine Scott will be able to hold what may become a rowdy concert on such an important historical site.
