Travis Scott has taken to Instagram to express his sympathy for the concert goers who died while attending his Astroworld Festival performance In Houston on November 5, 2021.
Scores of fans were injured and there are reports that at least eight people (between the ages of 14 and 27) were killed. The details are still emerging, but it appears that many of Scott’s reported 50,000 fans surged toward the stage, expressing their enthusiasm for his high energy performance. Clearly, there was little chance of escaping from the tragedy that unfolded.
Oddly, enough, there was no social distancing even though the United States is still battling Covid-19 and many live performances are on hold or occur with reduced attendance.
Scott said, “My prayers go out to the families and all those who were impacted by what happened at the Astroworld Festival. Houston PD has my total support as they look into the tragic loss of life. I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support the family in need. Thank you to Houston PD, Fire Department and NRG Park for their immediate response and support. Love You All.”
Kylie Jenner, Travis’ girlfriend, shared her feelings about the horrific events on social media, “Travis and I are broken and devastated. My thoughts and prayers are with all who lost their lives, were injured or affected in any way by yesterday’s events. And also for Travis who I know cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community. I want to make it clear we weren’t aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing. I am sending my deepest condolences to all the families during this difficult time and will be praying for the healing of everyone who has been impacted.”
