Rapper Travis Scott is attempting his return to the stage after his Astroworld concert in November 2021 — which led to 10 deaths and several injuries — with plans for his first public live performance following the disaster.
Travis Scott, who has performed some private VIP sets since the festival tragedy, is scheduled to take the stage in Miami, Florida on May 7 during the city’s excitement of Formula One Grand Prix at “ultraclub” E11even.
The highly anticipated race is set to bring the wealthy and fashionable people to town, with hotel rooms running up to $120,000 per night. According to Bloomberg, tables at the well desired club range from $5,000 to $100,000, meaning organizers are betting the rapper will be a big draw.
The club posted on Instagram announcing tickets over this past weekend, but the post has since been removed. A source mentioned to us it’s so they can update the marketing materials.
Travis Scott is still listed on the club’s website — with a link to tickets priced at a more reasonable $150 to $250.
The hip hop star is featured on rapper Future and producer Southside’s track, “Hold That Heat,” which was released last weekend, and appears in the music video.
While he was removed from the official Coachella line up, he performed live at a private after party two weeks ago at Bootsy Bellows.
He also performed a private set at a house party in Bel Air in March before the Oscars in front of guests supposedly including Leonardo DiCaprio, and Venus and Serena Williams.
Travis Scott has claimed he had no knowledge that people in the crowd at Astroworld — where the victims who died ranged from 9 years old to 27 — were hurt as he carried on with show.
He is currently facing several lawsuits and has created a philanthropy called Project Heal “to take much needed action towards supporting real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be.”
“I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever,” he has mentioned.
