Police Report Says Travis Scott Team Prevented Astroworld Concert From Stopping
Victims of Travis Scott‘s Astroworld tragedy were alarmed the concert continued as they were fighting for their lives, and one security guard even went backstage pleading with Travis’ team to stop the concert … but his team refused to alert Travis.
Police just released their 1,266-page report. which includes interviews with hundreds of concert attendees, many of whom suffered injuries and were hospitalized. Some of them paint a grisly picture of what happened in November of 2021 … as the crowd surge resulted in a stampede.
The report says the security guard, Marty, made it backstage to the audio area to try and stop the show while Drake was performing. Marty said he made it clear to two members of Travis’ team who allegedly had the ability to communicate with Travis that the concert needed to end, but he was blocked.
The man says Travis’ team did not want to shut the show down because Drake had three more songs left … and he says he told them the situation was “much bigger than Drake” but says Travis’ team “actively impeded the ability for anyone to stop the show.”
Police interviewed Drake and asked if he noticed any problems going on in the crowd while he was on stage and he told cops it was difficult to see from his vantage point because there were a lot of lights and it was his first time ever on that stage and he wasn’t able to rehearse. Drake also told cops he didn’t hear anyone in the crowd begging to stop the show, explaining that his earpiece drowns out a lot of outside noise.
The report also says Drake told police he met up with Travis after the show and at that point, they did not know about the tragic incident in the crowd. Drake said his manager later informed him of what happened.
Travis is still facing civil lawsuits over the deadly concert and if it turns out people on his team were blocking folks from stopping the show it could have legal consequences in those suits.
