Travis Scott performs publicly for first time since Astroworld
Miami, Florida - Rapper Travis Scott performed to a sold out crowd in Miami on Saturday, his first public performance since last year's Astroworld incident that resulted in 10 casualties.
Scott hit the E11EVEN stage around 3 AM, according to TMZ, and hyped up the crowd by saying everyone "better lose their mother f***ing minds!"
The rapper performed a 45-minute set, churning out hits like Pick Up the Phone, Sicko Mode, and Goosebumps.
Towards the end of the concert, Scott was joined onstage by Quavo of the group Migos, and the two jammed on the song Dubai S**t to close out the show.
Scott has performed at private events since Astroworld, such as his surprise set at a Coachella after party despite being banned from the festival. But his Miami show over the weekend marks his first public appearance since the infamous Astroworld incident that caused a crowd surge, which affected hundreds and has tangled up the artist in dozens of unresolved legal issues.
Scott is slated to headline the upcoming Primavera Sound Festival in June, and it was announced Tuesday that he will also be performing at this year's televised Billboard Music Awards on May 15.
While fans are hyped about his return to music, he still faces backlash and multiple pending lawsuits over the incident, which he has denied responsibility for but said left him "absolutely devastated."
Scott has made efforts to make amends, offering to pay funeral expenses for victims and refunding the 50,000 attendees.
It seems as though Scott is trying to get back to where he was prior to Astroworld, but only time will tell if his efforts prove successful.
