For his birthday Houston-born-rapper, Travis Scott, performed live at LIV’s nightclub in Miami. This marks his very first true live performance at a venue since the start of the pandemic.
That same weekend Cactus Jack also announced dates for the third annual ASTROWORLD Fest in Houston, TEX. The festival took a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic but due to changes in Texas it would seem concerts and festivals are now feasible again. ASTROWORLD is set to take place on November 5-6.
Travis Scott follows a recent trend in artists slating new dates for future tours meant to take place toward the end of 2021. A time where many believe the pandemic will be all but over.
On the same day Travis Scott performed at LIV, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended all COVID-19 restrictions. During a news conference the DeSantis said, “The fact is, we are no longer in a state of emergency.” It would seem other nations see, to feel the same way about the matter.
Just two months ago Governor Greg Abbott lifted the mask mandate in Texas and opened capacity of all businesses and facilities in the state completely.
Then, once again on Sunday, Los Angeles County reported no additional deaths as a result of COVID-19, the first time in over a year.
Only time will tell if the rest of the country’s will open up and more artists will follow in the footsteps of Scott to perform live again.
