The concert is also said to be “unparalleled audiovisual experience.”

The Utopia - Circus Maximus Tour marks Scott’s first headlining tour since the 2021 Astroworld tragedy. Ten people died and thousands were injured at the festival in the hip-hop star’s Houston, Texas hometown when his set began and the crowd rushed towards the stage.

A Texas grand jury convened to decide if Scott and others involved with the planning of the event should be charged, but in June, they announced no criminal charges would be pursued.

Shortly after the incident, the “Goosebumps” artist shared a statement on X (formerly known as Twitter) in which he said his “prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival.”

“Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into the tragic loss of life. I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support the families in need,” he continued.

He also thanked Houston Police and Fire as well as NRG Park, where the festival was held, “for their immediate response and support” during the incident.

There is currently no Houston concert planned for the Utopia - Circus Maximus Tour.
