After some speculation, it was officially announced that Travis Scott‘s highly anticipated event at the Egyptian pyramids had been canceled. On Wednesday (July 26), Live Nation shared a press release in regard to the decision. “Unfortunately, despite highest efforts, complex production issues meant that the show could not be constructed in the desert,” the message read. “We understand that the news is disappointing and not the outcome any of us desired.”
The communication continued, “We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may have caused and appreciate your understanding. We remain committed to bringing exceptional live performances to fans and hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future.” Said announcement also confirmed that refunds would be issued at the point of purchase.
Some time later, Scott took to social media to speak to his fans directly about the cancellation and promised that he will eventually bring his act to Giza. “Egypt at the pyramids will happen, but due to demand and detail logistics, they just need a bit a time to set lay on lands [sic]. I will keep you posted on a date, which will be soon. Love you all,” the Houston star tweeted.
Said event was meant to be in conjunction with the release of Scott’s fourth studio LP, UTOPIA, an album that was first announced back in 2020. Last week, he liberated the lead single from the long-awaited project, the BNYX, Boi-1da, Jahaan Sweet, Illangelo, and DVLP-produced “K-POP,” which features Bad Bunny and The Weeknd. An accompanying film, CIRCUS MAXIMUS, is expected to land in theaters today (July 27). Gaspar Noe, Valdimar Jóhannsson, Nicolas Winding Refn, Harmony Korine, and Kahlil Joseph contributed to what was described as “a kaleidoscopic exploration of human experience and the power of soundscapes.”
