Houston Travis Scott Concert | A sold-out audience of almost 50,000 rushed the stage during Travis Scott’s performance at NRG Park in Houston, Texas, on Friday night, making it one of the bloodiest concerts in American history. There were at least eight fatalities, and many more were wounded, when security personnel was overwhelmed. ABC13 Houston’s Laura Duclos and reporter Eric Daniels are both featured in this clip.

Many people at the back of the crowd tried to make a frenzied sprint towards the front during the event, even though it wasn’t apparent what motivated them to do so. One concertgoer, Neema Djavadzadeh, described the event as “hectic right from the start.”
“I came at 3 p.m. and observed that people were already trying to stand up straight,” she claimed. To get their hands on merchandise or food or activities or whatever else they could think of was a big part of the mob mentality that permeated the atmosphere. What a lengthy flight of stairs!

In order to ensure that the performer was aware of what was going on, “we begged security to help us,” she claimed. There was no sign of anything happening, and we kept sinking. Attendees ignored security and metal detectors to get inside the stadium at about 2 pm. Security and mounted HPD officers detained several participants, but no one was seriously injured. It felt a lot like the start of the 2019 competition.
