Travis Scott Reveals Not Knowing People Were Dying as Performance Took Place at Astroworld

In an exclusive interview with The Breakfast Club’s Charlamagne Tha God, Hip-Hop artist Travis Scott stated that despite reports, he did not know that fans were dying as he was performing at his Astrowold festival last month.

Charlamagne sits down with Scott to discuss the tragedy that took place at Scott’s Astroworld Festival on Nov. 5. Ten people died while attending the first night of his Astroworld festival, which was in its third year. Several hundred people were injured from a stampede as Scott was performing on stage. Reuters reported that the Houston Police Department had opened a criminal investigation.

The astute businessman responded to rumors that he ignored pleas to stop the performance as several concertgoers were literally dying as he was on stage. As he says he was unaware of the tragedy taking place, he stated that artists typically rely on and trust professionals to make sure audience members “can leave safely” once the show is done. Mentioning also that “something unfortunate happened” and hopefully they’ll figure it out.

“As artists, you trust professionals for when things happen that people can leave safely,” Scott tells Charlamagne. “This night was just like a regular show, it felt like to me, as far as the energy. People just showed up to have a good time and something unfortunate happened and we just need to figure out what that was.”

According to Local 10, victims from the show who passed away ranged from 9 to 27 years old. Approximately 300 attendees had been injured and treated at the venue whereas 25 were taken to hospitals.

Presently, there are more than 300 lawsuits filed in Houston and they all will be consolidated and heard by one judge. There is also an ongoing criminal investigation being conducted by the Houston Police Department. No one has yet been charged as no timetable has been set for the completion of the investigation.
