Travis Scott continues his comeback attempt after the Astroworld tragedy

Travis Scott has kept a low profile since his disastrous 2021 Astroworld concert. While performing at the festival in his hometown of Houston, Texas, the rapper allegedly instigated a mob that resulted in the deaths of 10 people, according to Rolling Stone.

In the wake of the tragedy, Scott faced massive backlash from critics and fans alike. Many felt that he was aware of the increasingly dangerous situation at the festival and should have stopped his concert long before he did. Also, it didn’t help his case that he allegedly encouraged crowds to mosh and act in other dangerous ways, per NBC. Scott sat for an interview with Charlemagne the God, who he claimed didn’t know what was going on until after the show.

As a result, Scott took a break from social media and stopped making public appearances for a while. Aside from appearing in a few of his girlfriend Kylie Jenner’s Instagram posts, Scott appeared to be trying to let the worst of the scandal pass as quietly as possible. Now, almost 10 months later, Scott is back on the scene trying to clean up his battered image.

Travis Scott puts the fans first

After months in hiding, Travis Scott is back on the concert stage and trying his best to make a good impression on his fans. During a July performance in Miami, Scott reportedly went out of his way to improve the concert experience for his fans. According to an eyewitness, Scott noticed a fan using his cell phone to capture video of the performance, so he snatched the phone off the stage to help him get a better angle. “But it was a FaceTime call,” the source told Page Six. “Travis looked confused and turned the guy over [at the other end of the call] in a playful way and put the microphone back [to its owner].” Scott also reportedly welcomed high-paying guests onstage to perform his “goosebumps” with him.

Aside from trying to make his fans have a good time, it seems Scott is more committed than ever to creating a safe environment for his fans. The following night, while performing at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York, Scott reportedly halted the show when things got out of hand. According to a TMZ report, during Scott’s performance, fans began climbing and hanging upside down on the trusses surrounding the stage. Scott stopped the show, asked them to come down, and refused to continue until everyone was safely on the ground.
