  “I’ve been through different types of emotions, emotional roller coasters. It gets so hard because I always feel connected to my fans, and I went through something and my fans went through something and people’s parents went through something and it really hurts. ” He pursues 

“It really hurts the community, it hurts the city. It’s just been a lot of thinking, a lot of feeling, a lot of grieving, and I just tried to wrap it around. “

The incident seen by Scott

In the 51-minute interview, Scott said it’s not uncommon for people to pass out or experience similar but temporary ailments during shows of this scale. He also made it clear that whenever he sees or hears recognizable distress from his audience, he calls for help.

“It’s so crazy because I’m that artist too, whenever you can hear something like that you want to stop the show,” he shared. “You want to make sure the fans get the attention they need […] And every time I’ve seen something like that, I’ve done it. I stopped him, like, a few times to make sure everyone was okay. And I really draw on the energy of the fans as a collective, a call and a response. I didn’t hear that. You know, I have music, I have my headphones. “

He also detailed the exact moment he realized people had died during his show and admitted, “  It really wasn’t until a few minutes before the press conference [after the show] that I realized what was going on. ‘had passed. […] Even after the show you sort of hear things, but I didn’t know the exact details, ” Scott said, “ and then at one point you’re like, ‘But wait? “. You just experienced something. People faint, things happen at concerts, but not in this way… ” he continues.

Since the tragedy, Anheuser-Busch has decided to stop marketing CACTI hard seltzer water, which is very popular and supported by Travis Scott. Additionally, due to the horrific injuries and deaths at Astroworld, Travis Scott, Drake, Live Nation are currently named in the $ 2 billion lawsuit.
