Special Report by Sherlene Shanklin, WHAS11 Television, ABC Affiliate Louisville
The411 with Sherlene Shanklin: It’s been a busy day when it comes to concert announcements. Hip hop star Travis Scott announces his “Astroworld: Wish You Were Here” Tour. The show is slated as a show unlike anything done before and unlikely to be topped with the artist’s explosive and wild performances. The tour will kick off in Baltimore, Maryland on November 8th. Several days later he will make a stop in Louisville, KY at the KFC Yum! Center on Monday, November 19th.
The tour is the same name of his third album, ASTROWORLD. Scott;s album earned the second highest debut of the year on the Billboard Top 200.
Tickets go on sale Friday, August 24th at 10 am for the Louisville show.
Also, did you know that he was giving away $100,000 to fans? Travis uses his platform to give back to fans and he actually handed out $100,000 on his Cash App. He calls it transferring his blessing to others.
