Megan Thee Stallion cancels Houston concert in the aftermath of the Astroworld tragedy Content Exchange

Megan Thee Stallion, a Houston local, has canceled her homecoming show 'out of respect for Travis Scott's Astroworld music festival victims.

The rapper was scheduled to perform in Houston's 713 Music Hall on Friday as part of her nationwide tour.

"Out of respect for the lives lost earlier this month in Houston, I've decided to cancel my December 3 show at 713 Music Hall," Megan said in a statement to the Houston Chronicle. "Houston is still grieving, and it is critical that our community be given adequate time to mourn."

"My heart goes out to all the families who are going through such a trying time."

Ten individuals were killed and countless others injured in a horrific crowd surge at Astroworld Festival on November 5. Ezra Blount, the youngest victim, was only nine years old. Travis Scott, LiveNation, Drake, and others face a slew of lawsuits in the aftermath of the disaster.

Scott offered to pay for the victims' funerals, but many of the victims' families declined.

"If you cared about these families, you wouldn't have to issue a public press release," a lawyer for one of the families answered.

Megan Thee Stallion's tour will resume on December 14 in Washington, DC. The Grammy-winning performer made an unexpected appearance at BTS's Los Angeles concert earlier this week, performing her verse in the remix of their smash song 'Butter.'
