Rapper Travis Scott does not have the best track record of keeping things cool and calm at his shows. There have been conflicts with fans in the past. This time, his antics didn’t just get his show at Lollapalooza Saturday cut short, it also got him arrested.
Scott had barely taken the stage and started his performance when he told the fans to rush the stage. Some fans obliged, and this was enough for the security to get involved, and for the set to be ended immediately, less than 10 minutes after the show began. The Office of Emergency Management released this statement:
“The performer played one song and then began telling fans to come over the barricades. Due to the security’s quick response, the situation was remedied immediately and no fans were injured. The performer fled the scene and was taken into custody a short while later.”
