Travis Scott had some big plans next week for his new album Utopia. The plan was for him to perform the album in full at the Pyramids in Egypt. Overall, this would happen just outside of Cairo, which is the countryâ€™s capital. Tickets for the show had already completely sold out. Although the show is a long way from the United States, this felt like a truly incredible idea. After all, what better way to display a new album than in front of one of the worldâ€™s greatest wonders?
Unfortunately, it would appear as though Travis Scott needs to come up with some new plans for his show. According to Yahoo!, the Egyptian musiciansâ€™ syndicate has declared that it will not allow Travis to perform. Overall, this decision comes as a bit of a surprise. Typically, artists are allowed to perform at the Pyramids. However, hip-hop has become a target of the syndicate as of late. It has been claimed that the genre goes against the countryâ€™s â€œtraditionsâ€ at times.
Travis Scott Will Need To Make New Plans
As it turns out, the syndicate took a look at Travisâ€™ planned stage show, and was immediately appalled by some of the â€œritualsâ€ he was going to perform. â€œThe syndicate found images and documented information on the strange rituals he practices, which go against our traditions,â€ a statement from the group explained. Simply put, they felt like Scottâ€™s performance was disrespectful to Egyptian culture. Although, they did not explain exactly what Scott was going to do.
This is a huge blow to the Utopia roll out. For now, Travis has yet to give a statement on exactly what is going on. Only time will tell what he decides to do next. Let us know what you think of all this, in the comments section below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for more news and updates from around the music world.
