In the last few hours, Travis Scott’s fans across the world were shocked to hear that the Egyptian Pyramids of Giza Concert will not happen as planned. In fact, Live Nation, the live touring and concerts behemoth, has itself confirmed that Scott’s long-awaited concert at “Giza in Egypt is officially cancelled.”
Reportedly, Scott’s concert, originally slated to go down at the Pyramids of Giza on July 28th, will not happen owing to “complex production issues” which “meant that the show could not be constructed in the desert.”
Live Nation has further assured concertgoers that “Refunds will be issued to all ticket holders at their point of purchase.”
Last week, Travis Scott’s concert was reportedly cancelled by the Egyptian authorities ’cause of “strange rituals” which might not adhere to “Egyptian and Arab customs and traditions”.
However, Live Nation assured Scott’s fans and concertgoers that it’s further from actuality and confirmed that the “Astroworld” rapper will premier his forthcoming album at the Pyramids of Giza.
Now that it’s “officially cancelled”, Scott has declared that the massive concert “will happen… soon”. Earlier today, the rapper, who most recently released the LP’s lead single “K-Pop” featuring Bad Bunny & The Weeknd, revealed that he “will keep the fans posted on a date”.
“Egypt at the pyramids will happen. But due to demand and detail logistics, they just need a bit a time to set lay on lands. I will keep u posted on a date which will be soon love you alllll,” Scott said via X.
Further, Scott has planned “4 more of these type of experiences in other places” and has asserted that fans “make sure they speakers ready” for the Utopia album releasing on “Thursday midnight.”
Last night, Scott further revealed the second and presumably third artwork of the “Utopia” LP. Besides the artwork, the Houston native is slated to release his directorial debut “Circus Maximus”.
Reportedly, Scott’s directorial debut has brought together cult cinema filmmakers Harmony Korine, Gaspar Noé, Nicolas Winding Refn, Valdimar Jóhannsson, and music-video maestro Kahlil Joseph.
