Oh no! Just hours before his sold out ‘Astroworld: Wish You Were Here’ show in Buffalo, NY, Travis Scott has cancelled his performance ‘due to illness.’ Now fans are worried about the rapper’s heath.
UPDATE: TMZ reports that Travis is not sick but is at home in Los Angeles with Kylie Jenner after she accused him of cheating on her. The site claims she “found evidence” of his indiscretions on Wednesday night and the fight continued into the next day, causing him not to make it to his Buffalo concert. His rep tells the site that the cheating allegations are absolutely falsse.
Travis Scott is in actual “Sicko Mode.” He has been grinding away on the second leg of his sold-out Astroword: Wish You Were Here North American tour, but it looks like it’s caught up with his health. Just three hours before he was due to perform at Buffalo’s Key Bank Center on Feb. 28, he had to bail on the show because he was too sick to give it his all. “Buffalo I’m so sorry I can’t perform tonight. I’m under the weather and it f**king sucks! Can’t pull up without full rage. Show rescheduled to March 10 all tix are valid. See u soon,” he tweeted shortly after the venue announced — also on Twitter — “Due to illness, tonight’s Travis Scott concert has been postponed until March 10th, 2019. Tickets for tonight’s concert will be honored on March 10. Refunds, if required, are available at point of purchase.”
Travis’ tour is such a wild success that on Dec. 17, 2018 he added 28 more cities in a second leg that kicked off in Vancouver on Jan. 25. The show is a high energy and a wild production that features a suspended roller coaster that runs above the audience in each of the arenas he plays in. For Travis to cancel at the last-minute, he had to have been feeling really ill. At least his fans now have the make-up date just a week and a half later.
The last time Travis cancelled a show at the last-minute a near riot broke out. On Feb. 11 his concert at the Bank of Oklahoma Center in Tulsa had the plug pulled just a few hours before the show was due to begin due to last-minute production issues, and Travis didn’t want to perform an “incomplete” show. By that point fans had already gathered and were waiting to be let into the venue when news broke that the concert was off. As a result, some angry concertgoers began pounding on the glass doors of the arena, shattering one before police moved in and broke up the melee by deploying pepper balls to break up the pissed off crowd. He has scheduled the makeup show for March 26.
