Travis Scott to Play at Primavera Sound, First Hire Since Astroworld – Billboard

Rapper Travis Scott is set to return to the stage, one day after the one-year anniversary of the 2021 Astroworld festival in Houston that left 10 people dead and has resulted in hundreds of lawsuits.

On Wednesday (April 27), Spanish concert promoter Primavera Sound released the lineups for three new festivals the company is launching in South America, with all three lineups featuring a headlining slot for artist “Sicko Mode.” Festivals include Primavera Sound Sao Paolo, where Scott will perform on November 6; Primavera Sound Buenos Aires, where Scott will perform on November 12; and Primavera Sound Santiago de Chile, where Scott will perform on November 13.

The performances mark Scott’s return to the stage after canceling his appearances at Day N Vegas and Coachella following the tragedy, which is still under investigation by Houston police and the FBI. The US House Oversight and Reform Committee is conducting a separate investigation of the Live Nation festival at NRG Park in Houston, where 50,000 people gathered on Nov. 5 to see local rapper Scott perform and other artists. Ten fans, including a 9-year-old boy, have died as a result of injuries they sustained at the concert after being caught in a stampeding crowd at the concert on November 5, 2021.
