Known for his explosively wild performances, the history-making Houston superstar will launch his biggest tour yet this fall: “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE.” Bringing the amusement park of his chart-dominating critically acclaimed blockbuster ASTROWORLD to life on stage, the artist has envisioned a show unlike anything done before and unlikely to be topped.
Produced by Live Nation, the tour kicks off Thursday November 8 at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, MD, returns to Houston for the inaugural ASTROWORLD FESTIVAL November 17, and rolls through historic venues like Madison Square Garden November 27 before concluding just before Christmas at the Forum in Los Angeles, CA.

His live shows have become the stuff of a legend with Billboard writing, “Travis Scott‘s penchant for raging, off-the-wall live shows have become an essential part of his career.” Next up, he brings that performance to the MTV VMAs on Monday August 20.
Celebrating the success of ASTROWORLD, Travis consistently uses his platform to give back, transferring his blessings to others. He recently gifted a fan $800 to help pay for his mother’s funeral costs. See the story on People. He further shared the wealth, handing out $100,000 on Cash App.
Additionally, ASTROWORLD retains its spot at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 for a second week in a row. It’s just the beginning.
The ride is about to get wilder…
Like the wildest rollercoaster imaginable, Missouri City, Texas-born and Los Angeles-based multiplatinum iconoclast Travis Scott flips popular music, culture, and fashion upside down. Bathed in bright lights, scents of carnival pleasures, and the climactic screams of millions worldwide, his third full-lengt album, ASTROWORLD [Cactus Jack Records/Epic Records], opened up as the undisputed, undeniable, and ultimate musical attraction of 2018. Upon arrival, it catapulted to #1 on the Billboard Top 200, earned the “second highest debut of the year,” and raised the bar by achieving the “biggest ever first-week streaming total for Sony Music” with 349.43 million streams worldwide in under seven days. Not to mention, it emerged as “the best Epic Records debut since 1999” with total sales of 537,000-270,000 comprised of traditional sales. This notably marked the highest pure sales week of the year as well. Acclaimed by Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and more and gracing the cover of GQ, this takeover paved the way for his second MTV VMA performance, ASTROWORLD Festival in Houston, and the gargantuan “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE TOUR” in 2018 and 2019.
Get ready for the ride of a lifetime!
