Travis Scott is doing his part to avoid ANY tragedies at hit show.
He recently performed in the tristate, at Coney Island in Brooklyn, opening up for Meek Mill. A video went viral of Travis stopping the show after noticing a rowdy crowd. Some fans climbed on top of the truss, which wasn’t bit a designated seating area.
In the footage, you hear Travis tell the audience, “We need y’all to get down.” Then he said, “Just make sure you’re okay.” At this point, fans listened and climbed down. Then Travis yelled again, “If everybody OK, let me get a ‘Hell yeah!’”
However, after music started playing, Travis asked the crowd to move back. He also asked security to not push his fans, Revolt points out.

Last year on November 5, a horrible tragedy took place during Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival. Approximately 50,000 fans attended and during the show, there was a riot, fans rushed the stage, resulting in ten people dying, including a nine year old boy. Complex reports, “a new court filing in May indicated that there have been over 4,900 injury claims.”
As reported on CNN, one concertgoer, TK Tellez, described the festival as a “fight for survival” because it was so packed. Tellez said, “We were all screaming for help, and no one helped or heard us. It was horrifying. People were screaming for their lives, and they couldn’t get out. Nobody could move a muscle.” Other people said the experience was “traumatizing” as they saw lifeless bodies and people passing out.
“Travis is committed to doing his part to ensure events are as safe as possible so that fans can have fun, and he encouraged fans to listen to requests from security and climb down from the lighting structures so that everyone would be able to safely enjoy last night’s performance.”
Travis and his team deny liability for the 2021 Astro tragedy. Rolling Stone reports Travis launched a foundation called Project HEAL, “whose initiatives include addressing concert safety.”
