Travis Scott Lands Las Vegas Residency Nearly One Year After Astroworld Tragedy • Hollywood Entertainment News


Travis Scott has inked a deal to front several shows for his upcoming Road To Utopia residency in Las Vegas, which officially kicks off its run in September, it has been confirmed. In the press release from Zouk nightclub, where the “Highest In The Room” rapper will be playing his shows, the gigs will be “a mind-bending, first-of-its-kind nightclub residency experience.”

The company’s CEO, Andrew Li, added a few words of his own to express his excitement in forming a partnership with Travis, affirming that the latter’s upcoming residency is unlike any other show tourists and concertgoers would find in Vegas.

“Travis Scott was a seamless fit for the Zouk Nightclub roster,” Andrew mentioned. “His electric performances will pair perfectly with our immersive atmosphere, bringing our guests an unmatched show unlike anything else they can find in Las Vegas.” This is one of Travis’ first major projects since the infamous Astroworld tragedy in November, which took the lives of 10 people, some of which were minors.

While Travis was initially expected to perform at Nevada’s Day N Vegas festival, it was later canceled due to the “combination of logistics, timing and production issues.” All of the shows Travis has done since Astroworld would indicate that he is slowly but surely making more appearances out and about, yet continues to focus his attention on his music and those who support it.

The father-of-two is still embroiled in a class action suit that claims over 4,900 people were injured from the mayhem that broke out at the deadly festival, with 732 of those people asserting they were “severely” injured and needed medical assistance to treat their condition.

Travis isn’t the only one being sued though. The Texas native joins the likes of Live Nation and other promoters and executives responsible for putting together Astroworld, especially since most of the lawsuits claim that the negligence of security and staff ultimately led to people losing their lives from what should have been fans enjoying themselves.

In an interview with Charlamagne Tha God last year, Travis tried to clear the air amid speculation that he intentionally ignored fans who urged him to stop the show during his performance because concertgoers were passing out on the floor due to all the chaos.

“Anytime you can hear something like that, you want to stop the show, you want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need,” he said. “And anytime I could see anything like that, I did. I stopped it like a couple of times to just make sure everybody was OK.”
