Travis Scott Says He Didn't Hear Astroworld Audience's Cries for Help, Breaks Silence on the Tragedy

Travis Scott has broken his silence in an extensive interview about the Astroworld tragedy with Charlamagne Tha God.

Hundreds were injured and multiple attendees died at the festival when the crowd began surging forward during Travis‘ set, leading to a panic in the crowd with fans trying to escape to safety. There are reports that he even stopped the show several times to ask security to help fans, but then at 9:38pm, the “mass-casualty incident” was triggered.

When asked if he heard the cries to shut down the set, Travis responded, “I just didn’t hear that,” he said on “The Breakfast Club.”

He was then asked if he did everything he could, and he responded, “Everything I physically [could], sure, yes. And, if knowing what was going on … you just wish you could have done something better. But, standing there, 1,000 percent.”

He also said “I’m that type of artist” who would have stopped the show.

“Anytime you can hear something like that you want to stop the show,” Travis said. “You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need. I just go off the fans energy. But I just didn’t hear [screams].”

“Fans come to the show to have a good experience,” he continued.

He was also asked about his responsibility.

“I have a responsibility to figure out what happened here. I have a responsibility to find a solution,” he said. “Hopefully this takes a first step into us as artists having more insight as to what’s going on.”

“And the professionals to figure out what’s going on…in the future move forward in concert safety,”

“I’m the face of the festival,” the musician said. “I’m the artist. So yeah, the media wants to put it on me.”

“I’m always here. I’m in this with you guys I love you and I always be there to help you guys heal through this,” he said.
