During the Astroworld Music Festival in Houston, Texas, a tragic incident unfolded at a performance by rapper Travis Scott. A large crowd of about 50,000 attendees moved towards the concert venue, leading to a stampede that resulted in multiple fatalities and injuries, including attendees being crushed and deprived of oxygen.

In response to the unfortunate events, Scott expressed his devastation on Twitter, sending his sympathies to the affected families and individuals. He also pledged his support to the Houston authorities investigating the incident and vowed to assist the community in healing and supporting those in need.

Despite being scheduled for an upcoming performance at the Day N Vegas Festival in Las Vegas, Scott has decided not to perform due to his emotional state. Instead, he has announced that he will personally oversee the refund process for all Astroworld attendees. However, the refunds may not be sufficient, as lawsuits have already been initiated against both the festival and Scott individually.

One of the lawsuits, filed by attendee Manuel Souza, alleges that Scott and the organizers failed to ensure the safety of the concert and disregarded the risks, resulting in serious harm to attendees. The lawsuit claims gross negligence on their part.
