Travis Scott Concert: He Throws the Jacket at the Spectators Excitedly

There’s a reason Travis Scott’s devoted followers are known as the “ragers”: his concerts are notorious for the unbridled enthusiasm and general mayhem they inspire.

After a horrific crowd crush at his own 2021 festival, Astroworld, which he organized, took the lives of 10 people and injured hundreds, this is Houston’s rapper Travis Scott’s first major headline performance since then.

The incident obviously had an effect on him. Scott paused during his set as a support act for Meek Mill in New York earlier this year after a fan climbed the lighting rig.

It was a remarkable scene, especially considering that a year ago he probably wouldn’t have spoken up against such conduct.

The rapper, who goes by the stage name La Flame, is in a particularly animated mood tonight.

He calls out to his daughter, Stormy, and sprints around the platform, his arms flying in a frantic zigzag pattern and occasionally flapping to the ground like the arms of a fatigued robot (an image enhanced by his aesthetic choices:

he wears a futuristic-looking pair of white goggles with tiny slits). He dives into the crowd and tosses his jacket into the crowd; at the end of his set, he’s obviously shirtless.

by singing Love Galore, a hit he recorded with SZA in 2017. I guess it doesn’t really matter if the crowd is singing it all back to him.

It is a Stunning Show Aesthetically

Scott’s whole life is represented in this setlist. He begins with “Hold That Heat,” a new song he recorded with Future and Southside, and then moves into “Beautiful Swirling Party Tracks” off his 2018 album, “Astroworld.”

Even West’s mesmerizing duet with Ye, God’s Country, which was left off of West’s album Donda, is played (and which Scott implies will be on his own forthcoming project, Utopia).

There isn’t a whole lot of fresh information or development, and at times the whole thing feels rushed in preparation for the upcoming release.

Maybe it doesn’t matter though, because the crowd goes crazy from the first notes of every song, and by the time Scott gets to his beat-switching masterpiece, Sicko Mode, he keeps whispering “oh my goodness” into the mic as he takes a look around.

Clearly, this is what the rioters have been waiting for. They sway back and forth like waves, their phones lighting in a way that contributes to the future stagecraft,

but things never appear out of control, and while Scott is right to refrain from goading them into chaos as he once did, he nonetheless feels a bit removed from the situation.

A glowing platform lifts him up into the air like a spaceship, engulfing him in a whirlwind of white light. Near-constant fireworks, dancing lasers, and billowing smoke contribute to the extravagant visuals.

Travis Scott Concert

Even though the concert looks incredible, tonight’s performance by Scott falls short of the standard set by the production values.

Yes, he brings that impressive intensity he’s known for, but this feels more like a show where he’s reacquainting himself with this magnitude of a crowd,

absorbing it all in, than delivering the faultless, abundant shows people have come to expect from him. It says a lot when, in anticipation of his second night at the O2, he declares, “Tomorrow night, we go harder.”Visit TheActiveNews.com for the latest news and posts.
