Travis Scott Pledges Refunds To Astroworld Attendees Following Tragedy

Travis Scott promises refunds for all attendees at Astroworld, Texas, where eight concert-goers died following a crowd surge.

Variety reports that Scott is “too distraught to play” at the Day N Vegas Festival, where he was due to perform on Saturday (November 13). It added that sources have confirmed Scott’s intention to refund all Astroworld ticket-holders.

A “mass casualty” was declared just over half an hour after Scott took the stage and crowd surges allegedly began. Despite this, Scott continued the planned setlist, finishing at approximately 10:15pm – around 45 minutes after the initial casualty report.

An estimated 300 people were treated for injuries at the event, with eleven people taken to hospital suffering cardiac arrests. Of that number, eight people aged between 14 and 27 tragically died.

The event is now under investigation by police and several concertgoers are suing Travis Scott and fellow performer, Drake.

In a statement issued on Twitter, Scott said he was “devastated” by Friday’s events.

“I’m absolutely devastated by what took place last night,” he wrote. “My prayers go out to the families and all those impacts by what happened at Astroworld Festival. Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into the tragic loss of life.”
