The concert was Travis’ first since releasing his chart-topping Utopia album. During the concert, he credited Kanye as a source of inspiration.
Travis addressed a crowd of 60,000 people, acknowledging the journey that led to this moment.
He emphasized Kanye’s impact: “There is no Utopia without Kanye West. There is no Travis Scott without Kanye West. There is no Rome without Kanye West. Make some noise for Ye!”

The duo performed Kanye’s tracks “Praise God” and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”
Kanye, who now goes by the name Ye, faced backlash and consequences in October 2022 after making antisemitic posts that led to him being dropped by brands and banned from social media platforms.
In his post, Kanye made accusations on Instagram that implied a conspiracy theory involving Jewish people controlling various aspects of society.
