Trippie Redd Pulls Out of Travis Scott’s Astroworld Tour
Trippie Redd has confirmed that he's officially pulled out of Travis Scott's Astroworld: Wish You Were Here tour. Before hitting the stage at XXXTentacion's Skins album listening concert last night (Dec. 6), TMZ reported that the Life's A Trip rapper confirmed that he will not be joining Travis Scott, Gunna and Sheck Wes for the rest of the national wide tour.
"I LOVE MY FANS THO YOU KNOW MY "LIFES A TRIP" TOUR STARTS IN LESS THAN 2 months for the time being I will be working on new music and will hopefully release something for u guys sorry thanks for understanding," Trippie Redd said in an Instagram post addressing his withdrawal from the tour.
According to a source close to Trippie's camp, the "Topanga" rapper wasn't here for the production issues and having his sets interrupted regularly since the tour began last month. The source also states that Trippie feels the production crew takes too long to assemble Travis' carnival-themed stage, which would make show's start times begin later. Because of the delays, Trippie's performance time was cut shorter than the rest of the acts.
Trippie has no direct beef with Travis Scott because in reality the "Sicko Mode" rapper is fed up with the delays as well. However, Trippie feels that it's not worth touring around the country when he can only perform such a small amount of songs. Trippie didn't show up for the Detroit stop of the tour, and won't be attending the next 10 shows on the schedule.
