He said he stayed the performance a pair of times, but he couldn’t attend fans crying for help.
“I stopped like a couple of times just to make sure everybody was OK,” stated Scott. “I just really go off the energy of the fans as a collective, you know? Call and response. I just didn’t, I just didn’t hear that.” Source – cbc.ca
Scott was the headliner and founder of the Astroworld Festival, where 50,000 people were in the audience. Scott’s set hung deathly as fans rushed toward the stage.
The most youthful victim was 9-year-old Ezra Blount. The others who died varied in age from 14 to 27. Some 300 people were wounded and treated at the festival site and 25 were taken to hospitals.
Almost 300 cases have been filed so far in Houston and will be reduced and managed by one judge. Scott, show promoter Live Nation and other firms associated with the occasion are among those being sued.
