In the weeks since the Astroworld tragedy, many celebrities have been caught on camera taking extra precautions at major concerts to ensure the safety of their fans. Big names like Teyana Taylor and SZA have stopped their sets to check out their audiences to prevent deaths on their shows.
Travis Scott recently told Charlamagne that he feels it is his responsibility to make sure the tragic incident at Astroworld Fest never happens again, and it looks like he’s already working on a plan for it. According to TMZ, Travis is working with national leaders on a new security protocol aimed at improving security at public gatherings.
Sources close to the situation told TMZ that Travis has spent the past few weeks meeting with leaders at the U.S. Mayors’ Conference to get the plan off the ground. USCM, which advocates the interests of more than 1,400 cities across the country, is reportedly helping Travis set up a committee to prepare a safety report for future shows.
In an outline of the group’s goals, it says that it will “aggressively focus on new technologies and innovations that provide ways to address these challenges,” with the help of members of government, public safety, emergency response, health management, the Music and technology.
Travis Scott is assisted by Hillary Schieve, Chairman of the USCM’s Tourism, Arts, Parks, Entertainment and Sports Committee to lead the initiative.
As we reported earlier, Travis’s efforts to fix things were not well received by some of the families affected by the tragedy. So far, he has offered to help with the victims’ funerals and several families, including 9-year-old Ezra Blount, have declined his generous offer.
