Travis Scott Axes Gigs In Ireland and Scotland To Focus On New Album


(AllHipHop News) Rapper Travis Scott has scrapped gigs in Ireland and Scotland due to a delay in the production of his new album.

The 24-year-old, who stormed into the U.S. charts in September of 2015 with the release of his debut album Rodeo, has canceled gigs at the O2 Academy venues in Dublin, Ireland and Glasgow, Scotland on Monday (August 22) and Tuesday (August 23) so he can concentrate on mixing his latest release.

“Due to his album mixes delay Travis Scott has been forced to cancel his shows in Dublin and Glasgow today and tomorrow,” a statement on the Facebook page of Irish music promoters MCD productions reads.

“He was hoping to have this all finished in time to travel but unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, it isn’t.”

As well as working on his new album, Travis recently launched his own radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 station.

Speaking to fellow Beats 1 host Zane Lowe earlier this month, the star revealed his new presenting job and updated fans on how his new album was coming along.

“I want people to really understand who we are and show a different side to me,” he said, adding, “My album is coming… I feel like it’s a very good body of work.”
