Travis Scott lands almost 1 year after Astroworld in Las Vegas

Travis Scott returns to the big stage almost a year after 10 people died of compression suffocation at his 2021 Astroworld festival.

Zouk Nightclub in Las Vegas announced Monday that the 31-year-old rapper will be playing seven shows at their location starting next month.

Road to Utopia will be “a stunning, first-of-its-kind nightclub residency experience” and a chance for Scott to sample some of his upcoming music, according to a press release.

“Travis Scott fit seamlessly into the Zouk Nightclub roster,” said Andrew Li, the CEO of Zouk Group, in a statement.

“His electric performances will complement our immersive atmosphere and give our guests an unparalleled show that they cannot find in Las Vegas.”

The news comes a month after Scott’s performance at the Day N Vegas festival in Nevada was canceled.

Organizers of the Vegas festival, scheduled to take place over Labor Day weekend on Sept. 2-4, said the performance was canceled due to “a combination of logistics, timing and production issues.”

It would be the first festival appearance of the “Goosebumps” rapper since Astroworld.

Scott gave his first public appearance at Miami’s E11 ultra club, even during the Formula 1 Grand Prix in May. He also played at a Coachella bash and a pre-Oscar party.

After the tragedy, 400 lawsuits have been filed against Scott, Live Nation and others associated with the festival. All parties have been charged with negligence and the cases have been merged into one civil case with nearly 2,800 victims.

Both Scott and Live Nation have denied the allegations.

In December, the 31-year-old rapper told Charlamagne Tha God that he was doing “1,000 percent” everything he could to help dying spectators as soon as he knew there was a problem.

“Every time you hear something like that, you want to stop the show, you want to make sure fans get the right attention they need,” said the rapper, who shares two children with Kylie Jenner.

“And every time I could see something like that, I did. I stopped it a few times to make sure everyone was okay. ”

He continued, saying that lighting, fireworks and the sound of the show can make it difficult to tell what is happening on stage.

“You can only help what you can see and whatever you are told, when they tell you to stop, you stop,” he added.
