Travis Scott Pauses Concert to Stop Security From Kicking Out Fan – Billboard
Written by GRB on 22/10/2023
Travis Scott seemed to be looking out for his fans at a recent stop in Dallas, Texas, where he brought his Utopia Circus Maximus Tour earlier this week.
A clip from the Oct. 18 show, which was filmed by someone in the audience, has started circulating around social media. In the short video, a fan in the crowd falls to the ground while there appears to be an interaction with security.
“One thing you not gonna do, you not gonna kick a fan out,” Scott called out from Dallas’ American Airlines Center stage as the music turned down. “You not gonna do that, brother. You’re not gonna do that. You back up. You back up, brother. She’s just enjoying herself. You back the f— up. Let her just have a good time.”
“That’s a female,” he said. “You don’t grab a female like that, OK?”
The security guard in question shook hands with the fan the rapper defended, who stood up on a platform for a moment to hype up the crowd, and then went back down to the floor.
Last week, Scott postponed a date of the tour at the last minute. According to local reports, he played a sold-out show at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., on Oct. 13, but when concertgoers arrived at the arena for his second show at PNC the following night, they were told it had just been called off. The arena told fans to hold on to their tickets, which will be honored at a to-be-determined future date.
