Travis Scott announces Las Vegas residency

Shows will be held at Resorts World Las Vegas

Travis Scott announces the Road to Utopia, a mind-bending, first-of-its-kind nightclub residency experience with Zouk Nightclub at Resorts World Las Vegas. Scott brings an unmatched energy and singular creative force to the property’s list of iconic residents on what promises to be a spectacle only suited for Las Vegas. The first of seven shows begin on September 17th and runs through October 15th.

“Travis Scott was a seamless fit for the Zouk Nightclub roster,” states Andrew Li, CEO of Zouk Group. “His electric performances will pair perfectly with our immersive atmosphere, bringing our guests an unmatched show unlike anything else they can find in Las Vegas. We can’t wait to kick off his residency and continue to amplify our talent lineup.”

“From his music and fashion to unprecedented brand collaborations, Travis Scott is a one-of-a-kind, multi-talented artist. His residency will bring a new level of energy to Resorts World Las Vegas and add to the property’s diverse list of entertainment and nightlife offerings,” adds Ronn Nicolli, Chief Marketing Officer of Resorts World Las Vegas.

Tickets start at $50 via Resorts World’s website.

These will be Scott’s first headlining shows since last year’s AstroWorld tragedy that killed 10 and left hundreds injured during his performance. Scott was on stage when the crowd of more than 50k surged towards the stage in November 2021. Panic ensued which caused people to be trampled and emergency personnel to intervene multiple times. Live Nation reportedly agreed to end the concert early after the Houston Police Department and Fire Department declared a mass casualty event, but the concert continued for another 40 minutes. In an interview with radio personality Charlamagne Tha God, Scott says he wasn’t aware of the tragedy until afterwards and was told to end the show after Drake, who appeared as a special guest, was finished.

More than 1,500 claims have been filed against Scott, Live Nation and others. The Board of Judges of the Civil Trial Division of the Harris County District Courts has determined to consolidate all the past filed and any future filed Astroworld lawsuits to one judge for further handling.

Scott and Live Nation promised full refunds for attendees with Scott covering all funeral costs and mental assistance for those affected. However, most victims’ families have denied Scott’s offer.

The US House of Representatives is investigating Live Nation in connection with the Astroworld Music Festival tragedy. In a letter sent to Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino, Representatives Carolyn Maloney, James Comer, Al Green, Kevin Brady and Bill Pascrell Jr. are seeking further information about the company’s responsibility due to staff that were “inexperienced or ill-equipped to deal with mass injuries” and for the “placement of barricades made it difficult to escape.”

Scott has also been announced as a headliner for Primavera Sound Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, and Santiago this November.
