Megan Thee Stallion has announced that she is cancelling a previously scheduled show in Houston out of respect for the victims of the Astroworld music festival tragedy.
“Out of respect for the lives lost in Houston earlier this month, I have decided to cancel my show at 713 Music Hall on Dec 3,” the rapper said in a statement, referring to the stampede during Travis Scott‘s headlining set on November 5, in which ten people were killed and hundreds of others were injured.
Dozens of lawsuits have been filed against the rapper, surprise performer Drake, and organizers of the music concert, which went on for 40 minutes even after the incident occurred.
“Houston is still healing and it’s important that our community be given the appropriate time to grieve,” Megan added. “My heart goes out to all the families that are suffering during this difficult time.”
Since her concert was announced last month, the Houston native was eager to take the stage and celebrate the grand opening of Live Nation’s 713 Music Hall, which was converted from the city’s historic Barbara Jordan Post Office.
