Travis Scott Confirms Las Vegas Residency

Eight months following November’s deadly Astroworld tragedy, Travis Scott’s performance calendar continues to fill up with the rapper announcing his “resident artist” spot at Resort World Las Vegas’ Zouk Nightclub.

Premiering September 17 and October 15, the Zouk show — dubbed “Road to Utopia” — will follow his scheduled appearances at London’s O2 Arena on August 6 and 7. According to a press release the embattled rapper will “feature some previews of upcoming tracks” during his West Coast gigs and Tickets for the Vegas show start at $50 for women and $75 for men and are limited to people over the age of 21.

The residency announcement arrives as the rapper faces dozens of lawsuits and millions of dollars in potential damages following the death of ten people and hundreds of injuries at his Astroworld Fest in Houston last year. Since then, Scott and his team have repeatedly denied any liability for the event but launched a foundation called Project HEAL, whose initiatives include addressing concert safety.

Taking to social media in March, Scott wrote on Instagram “My team and I created Project HEAL to take much-needed action towards supporting real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be.” “I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever.” The initiative also includes scholarships at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, a continuation of a similar initiative he started with the Cactus Jack Foundation in 2020.

Though he’s taken a significant break since the deadly music fest, Scott appeared as a surprise guest at Rolling Loud in Miami, performed at the Billboard Music Awards in May, made an appearance at a Miami nightclub, and performed at Coachella and Oscars parties. He’s also set to appear at several South American festivals in November and was originally headlining Day N Vegas before it was canceled last month.
