Astroworld: Ye dedicates Sunday Service victims at Travis Scott concert

YE, previously known as Kanye West has dedicated his recent Sunday Service to the victims at the Astroworld concert held by Travis Scott on Friday.

The service follows a tragic incident at the concert where eight people died and others injured in a violent moment at the event.

The incident during Scott’s Astroworld 2021 music festival at NRG Park in Houston saw the crowd compress towards the front of the stage, causing panic while many were struggling to breathe.

A 10-year-old was reportedly among those injured, and the ages of those who died were between 14 and 27.

The visual for the gospel service showed attendees dressed in black as beams of light were cast into a large grey space.

Roddy Ricch, who performed at the event, has also pledged to donate his earnings from the show to the families of those involved in the incident.

“Please have the families of those who we lost yesterday reach out,” the rapper wrote in his Instagram stories on Saturday.

Scott and the organisers of the Astroworld event are facing a lawsuit by three concertgoers over injuries.

Kristian Parades, 23, has sought damages worth $1m for the injuries he says he sustained during the concert, as he accused Scott and Aubrey Drake Graham (known professionally as Drake) of negligence.

Patrick Stennis and Manuel Souza have also filed lawsuits in Harris County against Scott and concert company Live Nation.
