Travis Scott has announced his first tour after the tragedy at Astroworld in 2021.

Travis Scott is preparing to return to the stage almost two years after the Astroworld catastrophe, his ill-fated Houston performance in 2021 that left ten people dead and hundreds wounded.

According to a press release, the rapper revealed on Wednesday that his “Utopia – Circus Maximus” tour would begin on October 11 in Charlotte, North Carolina and conclude in December in Toronto, Canada, after performing in a total of 28 North American locations.

Scott’s tour follows his live performance earlier this month in the Circus Maximus in Rome, Italy, which sold out 60,000 tickets in two days and provoked earthquake worries.

Scott’s announcement marks his first official tour since the fatal Astroworld Festival, which he both organised and headlined.

That event swiftly devolved into mayhem as concertgoers crammed near the stage during Scott’s performance, with many battling to breathe. Following the uproar, authorities declared the performance a “mass casualty event.”

The Houston District Attorney’s office exonerated Scott of criminal charges in late June of this year, District Attorney Kim Ogg announced at the time during a news conference. However, he has been the subject of a number of legal lawsuits filed by the relatives of the victims.

Scott stated in a statement after the tragedy that he was “distraught by the situation and desperately wishes to share his condolences and provide aid to (the victims) as soon as possible.”

Scott released his fourth studio album “Utopia” last month, a rap album that has been at the top of Billboard’s Hot 200 Albums list for four weeks.

The tour will “transport fans into an unparalleled audiovisual experience,” according to a news release issued on Wednesday, and a portion of every ticket sold will benefit Scott’s Cactus Jack Foundation, an organisation that benefits Houston youth through toy drives, scholarship programmes, and by helping to pay for education and creative endeavours.

The “Utopia – Circus Maximus” tour tickets will go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. in the buyer’s time zone.
