Nearly a year after 10 people perished from compression asphyxia at his Astroworld festival in 2021, Travis Scott is returning to the big stage. It was revealed on Monday by Zouk Nightclub in Las Vegas that the 31-year-old rapper would perform seven gigs there beginning in the following month.
According to a press release, Road to Utopia will be “a mind-bending, first-of-its-kind nightclub residency experience” and give Scott an opportunity to preview some of his new music. “Travis Scott was a seamless fit for the Zouk Nightclub roster,” said Andrew Li, the CEO of Zouk Group, in a statement.
“His electric performances will pair perfectly with our immersive atmosphere, bringing our guests an unmatched show unlike anything else they can find in Las Vegas.” The announcement follows Scott’s attendance at Nevada’s Day N Vegas festival being postponed by a month.
The concert was canceled, according to the Vegas festival’s planners, because of “a combination of logistics, time, and production concerns.” The festival was scheduled to take place from September 2-4 over the Labor Day weekend.
The “Sicko Mode” rapper’s concert at the festival would have been his first since Astroworld. At Miami’s ultraclub E11even during the Formula 1 Grand Prix in May, Scott delivered his debut public performance.
