Travis Scott Performs In Public for First Time since Astroworld Tragedy, “The Crowd Was Singing Every Word to his Songs”

Travis Scott invited the ladies over to his first public performance following the tragic Astroworld Festival.

Before approaching the stage at E11even’s Miami Grand Prix celebration Saturday night, the rapper threw a wad of cash into the audience while clutching a bottle of Don Julio 1942 tequila.

“Everybody owes me a shot,” he told the crowd. “We need every stripper to report to the f–king stage right now. We need every bottle reported to this motherf–kin floor.”

When he began to perform “Antidote,” the crowd went wild.

Scott also performed “Highest in the Room,” “Pick up the Phone,” “Goosebumps,” and “SICKOMODE,” which were all hits.

“The crowd was singing every word to his songs,” a spy told Page Six.

Scott joined the stage at about 3:30 a.m. EST and left around 4:15 a.m. EST.

Scott, 31, was supposed to perform at the club’s Formula 1 bash, Page Six exclusively reported last month. Tables were reportedly sold for $5,000 to $100,000.

As per Pop Culture, he has remained largely quiet since the tragic Astroworld crowd crush that resulted in ten deaths and hundreds of injuries, however, he has performed at a few private parties.

After no longer being on the music festival’s official lineup, the “Goosebumps” singer performed at a private Bootsy Bellows Coachella 2022 afterparty in April.

He also performed in front of guests such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Serena Williams at a private home party in Bel-Air prior to the Oscars that month.

However, his E11even set on Saturday night was his first public performance since stepping away from the spotlight in November 2021 amid anger over how he handled the tragedy at his Houston festival.

Scott has claimed that he was ignorant that anyone in the Astroworld audience was injured or murdered while he continued to perform despite the crowd’s requests to stop. The victims who died ranged in age from 9 to 27 years old.

He has only given one interview since the festival, asserting to radio host Charlamagne That God in December 2021 that he “1,000 percent” did everything he could to help dying audience members and reiterating that he did not hear their cries from the stage.

“You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need. I just go off the fans’ energy. But I just didn’t hear [screams],” he alleged.

Scott, who has two daughters with Kylie Jenner, has been hit with several lawsuits and has since founded Project Heal, which aims to “to take much-needed action towards supporting real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be.”
