Travis Scott is all set to embark on his Utopia : Circus Maximus Tour in 2023, spanning 28 cities and running throughout the year. This tour, which promises to immerse fans in an unparalleled audiovisual journey, is in support of his latest album “Utopia.”

Commencing on October 11 in Charlotte, North Carolina, the tour will traverse North America until December 29. A highlight of the tour will be Scott’s biggest headlining performance yet at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium on November 5.

Following his electrifying live show at the Circus Maximus in Rome, Italy earlier this month, an event that swiftly sold oput 60,000 tickets in two days and raised concerns about seismic activity, Travis Scott’s official tour announcement marks his return to touring since the tragic Astroworld Festival incident.

The Astroworld Festival, an event organized and headlined by Scott, turned chaotic as attendees were caught in a crush, struggling for breath amid the stage crowd. This turmoil eventually led authorities to label the situation a “mass casualty event.”

Named “The Circus Maximus Tour,” this expansive journey across 28 North American cities includes a stop at the Oakland Arena on Halloween night.

Tickets for the tour will become available for purchase starting at 10 a.m. on Thursday, August 31.

Mayor Sylvester Turner of Houston shared, “Travis Scott and his promoters have secured the Toyota Center for an upcoming October concert. Unlike the Astroworld Festival held at NRG in 2021, this concert will be hosted in a different venue.” These words were part of a statement provided earlier this month to a local news outlet, Chron

Ticket sales are scheduled to commence at 10 a.m. local time on Thursday. Scott’s album “Utopia” has been reigning atop the Billboard 200 chart for four consecutive weeks, accumulating over 1.5 billion streams worldwide.
