Travis Scott stopped his show Monday night because several fans put themselves in danger … and it’s impossible not to think about the tragedy at Astroworld when looking at the video.
Travis opened for Meek Mill at the Coney Art Walls in Coney Island. He took the stage at around 8 PM, DJ’d and then performed.
The crowd was packed in, so much so that a couple of concertgoers climbed up a lighting truss and dangled as they watched Travis perform. One of the fans must have planned ahead … he was wearing a Spiderman costume.
Travis saw what was happening and stopped the show, ordering the fans to climb down from the truss. They followed his orders and the concert went on.
As you all know, Travis is facing multiple lawsuits over the Astroworld tragedy, with some of the victims and victims’ families alleging he should have stopped the show before the crush. Travis insists he didn’t see or know what was going on, and fact is … apparently neither did the police, who seemed oblivious.
Travis is expected to perform at several concerts with enormous crowds later this year.
