Jacques Bermon Webster ll, also known as Travis Scott is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. He holds concerts in outdoor fields. I decided to watch this concert because I heard it all over social media when it happened. He held this concert November 5th, 2021, it resulted in the death of 19 people who attended. This specific concert was held outside. He was dressed casually and created a very loud and aggressive setting with his special effects, flamethrowers being one of them. This tragedy of a concert was way too overcrowded at the time and the crowd “began to compress toward the front of the stage.” The crowding began with people being unaware of the push and when they finally realized they all collectively attempted to run to safety. By the time Travis realized it was too late and many people were already injured/dead. The concert ended up ending earlier than planned, obviously for public safety reasons. I’d like to compare this concert to Beethoven’s. Both concerts were not very appealing for the audience, Travis’s a lot more than Beethoven. Both were because the performer itself was unaware of the setting that they were putting their audience in.
