Travis Scott announces 2019 tour dates, including 3 in Canada
On Monday evening, Travis Scott announced a second leg to the North American “Astroworld: Wish You Were Here” tour. It will kick off in Vancouver on Jan. 25 and run through to March 24, hitting a number of American cities and three Canadian ones.
The 26-year-old rapper has been promoting his latest and critically-acclaimed album, Astroworld (2018). It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Scott was nominated for three Grammy Awards for the 2019 ceremony set to take place on Feb. 10, including best rap performance for his hit single, Sicko Mode (ft. Drake), and best rap album for Astroworld.
Travis Scott performs at Travis Scott’s Halloween at the Weekend Unlimited Delilah Take Over on Oct. 31, 2018 in Los Angeles, Calif.
Scott made the announcement via Twitter. Rather than getting excited, fans opted not to get their hopes up. It’s not unusual for Scott to postpone or even cancel a show on short notice.
Many publicly shared their fears of that being a possibility in the second leg.
The Astroworld tour will make up for only three of the previously cancelled shows: Hartford, Milwaukee and Tampa. Others, including Raleigh, are yet to be rescheduled.
Travis Scott performs on stage during the Astroworld: Wish You Were Here Tour at Prudential Center on Nov. 24, 2018, in Newark, N.J.
Scott has toured extensively throughout the year, giving his fans what is widely considered as “the best show of the year” with a “spectacle” of a stage show.
He will return to Canada for three highly-antcipated shows in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.
