8 killed, many injured as crowds gather at Astroworld festival in Houston

The deaths brought to mind a 1979 concert for The Who, where 11 people were killed and nearly two dozen were injured as thousands of fans tried to walk into Cincinnati’s Riverfront Coliseum.

Scott, one of music’s biggest young stars, released two new songs “Mafia” and “Escape Plan” on Friday. The 29-year-old Houston native has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards. He has a 3-year-old daughter, Stormi, with Kylie Jenner, who announced in September that she is pregnant with their second child.

Drake Scott joined on-stage at the concert – which was livestreamed by Apple Music – and posted photos to Instagram after the performance.

Pea said the promoters of the event had arranged for medical units to be on site at the festival, however as crowds grew, those units were “quickly overwhelmed”.

In a video posted to social media, Scott can be seen stopping the concert at one point and asking for help for someone in the audience: “Safety, someone helps really quickly.”

Houston Police’s acting assistant chief Larry Satterwhite was at the forefront of the crowd and said it looked like the boom “happened all at once.”

“All of a sudden we had several people on the ground, experiencing some kind of cardiac arrest or some kind of medical episode,” Saterwhite said. “And so we started doing CPR right away, and moving people right at the same time, and that’s when I went and met with the promoters, and Live Nation, and they ended up early in the interest of public safety. agreed to.”
