Problems Surrounding Travis Scott's Egypt Show

Travis Scott initially announced his show at the Pyramids of Giza on July 9. However, a week later, Egypt's Musicians’ Syndicate, who is responsible for issuing concert licenses in the country, announced the show was canceled.

"Regarding the concert scheduled to be held on 28th July at the Pyramids area in Giza by American rapper Travis Scott, the Musicians’ Syndicate, as the entity responsible for issuing licenses for music and singing concerts in Egypt, in coordination with the Egyptian Ministry of Culture represented by the Censorship Authority for Artistic Works and the Ministry of Labor, emphasizes the necessity of considering security aspects and obtaining approvals from the relevant authorities as a top priority when organizing concerts," MS official spokesman Dr. Mohamed Abdullah said in a statement. "This is to ensure the safety and protection of the audience."

The statement continues: "While the Musicians’ Syndicate has welcomed various art forms and concerts in recent months, it has set conditions and regulations to safeguard the customs and traditions inherited by the Egyptian people.

"As the Musicians’ Syndicate is part of the fabric of our beloved country, it works towards its stability and security and rejects any tampering with the societal values, customs, and traditions of Egypt and the Arab world. After examining social media opinions and feedback, as well as the news circulating on search engines and social media platforms, which included authenticated images and information about peculiar rituals performed by the star during his performance, contradicting our authentic societal values and traditions, the Syndicate’s president and board of directors have decided to cancel the license issued for hosting this type of concert, which goes against the cultural identity of the Egyptian people."

The same day, Live Nation announced the Travis Scott show had not been shut down and would be going on as scheduled. It appears technical issues have changed those plans. Despite the show cancelation, Travis Scott still plans on releasing his new album Utopia on Friday (July 28).
