Travis Scott halted his final show to order fans to come down and stop climbing a light truss next to the stage.
The rapper’s response comes after a deadly surge during his 2021 Astroworld festival that left 10 dead and more than 4,900 injured.
While Scott has still not performed his first major concert since the incident, on Monday (July 4) he joined the cast of Coney Art Walls for their Independence Day event – Day Party with Meek Mill.
New TMZ Video footage, fans can be seen climbing and sitting on the metal structures. In the middle of a performance of “Antidote,” Scott can be heard telling fans, “We need you all to calm down, we need you all to calm down.”
“Hey my brother, my brother, just make sure you’re alright down there,” he adds. “You hear me?”
Before the “Goosebumps” rapper restarts his set and says, “If everyone’s okay, let me get a ‘hell yeah.’ If everyone wants to party, let me get a ‘hell yes’.”
A few seconds later, however, Scott stops the music again to instruct fans around him to “take two steps back.”
He then orders the security forces “not to hit the barricade.”
Again he repeats “You gotta get down” to the fans who have climbed back onto the traverse.
Currently, Scott, festival organizer Live Nation, Apple and others are facing multiple lawsuits alleging that the Houston Music Festival 2021 was planned and hosted negligently.
All of the defendants, including Scott, have denied the allegations against her. The singer has also repeatedly denied knowing how serious the situation was during his performance.
Scott has recently confirmed he will be helming his first UK show since the Astroworld tragedy on August 6 at London’s O2 Arena.
