It’s apparent the performer has been staying on course to create safer concerts following his November 5, 2021 Astroworld festival that turned deadly.

Last month, Scott paused a show at Miami’s exclusive E11EVEN club. The pause in his performance came after multiple concertgoers climbed scaffolding to get a better look at their idol.

In the past, Scott was infamous for inciting chaos and encouraging mosh pits at his shows.

According to footage obtained by TMZ, he can be heard rapping “Antidote” before stopping and saying, “We need y’all to get down. We need y’all to get down.”

Another person onstage reassures the rapper “I got ‘em, I got ‘em.”

The crowd starts to get restless over the concertgoers’ actions.

Travis hits the mic again saying, “Aye yo my bro, my brother, just make sure you’re okay though my brother. You hear me?”

He then hypes the crowd back up by asking, “If everybody okay, let me get a ‘Hell Yeah.’”

The crowd shouts in unison, “Hell Yeah”

“If everybody want to party, let me get a ‘Hell Yeah.’”

Travis restarted his performance but not before asking the crowd to take two steps back from the barricade around the stage.

The Blast reported that 10 concertgoers at his Astroworld Festival died after the audience surged forward toward the stage. Their official cause of death was compression asphyxia.
