AceShowbiz - An official of Playboi Carti's concert has issued a safety warning in the wake of the Astroworld tragedy. Before the the rapper kicked off his Inglewood, California show of the "King Vamp Tour", an employee of The Forum threatened concertgoers to follow the strict safety protocol or the show would be stopped.
"If you guys do not follow the rules, if you guys jump over to the floor, if you guys do anything that they consider dangerous -- not one, not two -- but just one person messing up, this show is over," the man said in the Saturday, November 6 show. "We are fighting, we are convincing them to let us do this show for you. But this show now, if it happens, is on you."
"So please, let's have a good time, but be respectful, follow the rules and take care of each other. Can we do that?" the official further stressed. "I'm here for you, we're here for you, the artist is here to perform for you. But I can't stress enough: Let's have a good time, let's be safe and enjoy the show."
The warning was met with applause by the crowd. However, some concertgoers still formed mosh-pits where former NBA star Brandon Jennings was spotted. Luckily, the show went on perfectly with no reported injuries.
This arrived just one day after eight people, ranging in age from 14 to 27, died at Travis Scott (II)'s Astroworld music festival. A hundred others, on the other hand, were injured at the 50,000-person show, which took place at the NRG Park in Houston, Texas.
The Cactus Jack founder is now facing multiple lawsuits in the aftermath of the incident. The "Sicko Mode" emcee also backed out of the Day N Vegas Festival in Las Vegas because he's "too distraught to play" his next scheduled show.
