(AllHipHop News) If there were any remaining questions about whether Travis Scott was part of the upper echelon of contemporary Hip Hop, news about his first headlining arena concerts will provide the answer. La Flame pulled in big numbers.
The "Astroworld: Wish You Were Here Tour" grossed $34.3 million for the first 32 dates. Scott's trek has made more money than recent tours by J. Cole ($25.2 million), Post Malone ($20.9 million), Future ($19.9 million), Childish Gambino ($19.5 million), and Chance the Rapper ($17 million).
When the "Astroworld Tour" wraps up on March 26, a final total of $50 million is not unlikely. That would put the Houston native in the range of Jay-Z's "4:44 Tour" ($48.7 million) and Kanye West's Saint Pablo Tour ($52.8 million). In comparison, Kendrick Lamar's "The DAMN Tour" made $40.7 million.
Travis Scott would still be far behind the gross for the "Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour." Drake's summer/fall 2018 run brought in around $80 million. The Carters are in another stratosphere. Jay-Z and Beyoncé's "On The Run II" stadium tour finished with $254 million.
