“Thank you for your admission to Astroworld.” Houston rapper, Travis Scott had an outstanding year in 2018. He dropped one of the biggest albums of the year, Astroworld, and curated the sound track to NBA’s 2K19. The success of Astroworld also brought him across the country to host his first arena-sized tour with support by Sheck Wes, Trippie Redd and Gunna. As the tour was coming to a close, Scott announced a second leg of the tour where he would visit more cities around the USA. Since launching the trek on Nov. 8, 2018 in Baltimore, MD, Travis has grossed $34.3 million and sold 485,659 tickets across the tour’s first 32 dates.
Technical difficulties prevented the “Goosebumps” rapper from playing a few venues during the first leg of the tour. Scott assured fans the shows were not cancelled but will be rescheduled to a later date. Those venues were then added to the second leg of the tour. Included in those cities was Hartford, Connecticut where we would see how astronomical Astroworld really is.
La Flame is easily one of the greatest performers of our generation. Every show from past to present flows with overwhelming energy that never gets old. The stage presence he brings simply can not be matched by any other artist.
2 stages stare each other down from each side of the arena. Between them is a mob of screaming fans and surrounding the room are fans who chose to rage from their seats. Fireworks, smoke and flames shoot from each stage throughout the night. Visually, the main attraction is the over-head rollercoaster that travels between the 2 stages. Some lucky fans get to ride along side Travis while he performs. The show closes out with 5x platinum selling single “Sicko Mode” and an eruption of fire works. There are no noticeable changes, if any, between the first and second tour runs. Maybe a slight tweak on the song list he performs at most.
