Following the chaos that rocked Travis Scott’s Astroworld music festival in Houston last Friday that took the lives of eight people, including a 14-year-old kid, the Houston Rockets have taken a firm decision and postponed Travis Scott Night which was scheduled to happen on Wednesday night.
Instead, the Houston Rockets will honor the victims of Travis Scott’s Astroworld music festival by having a moment of silence for the eight people who lost their lives and those who were seriously injured at the music festival held in Houston. This is a good decision by the Houston Rockets.
TMZ reports that the Houston Rockets initially planned on handing out 3,000 limited edition Scott-themed shirts before their matchup against the Detroit Pistons, but that won’t see the light of the day as they have chosen to honor the victims of Travis Scott’s Astroworld concert instead.
According to the head coach of the Houston Rockets, Stephen Silas, who shared his condolences to the families of Astrworld festival victims, his 14 and 17-year-old daughters wanted to attend the Astroworld music festival but were unable to attend due to a volleyball tournament in Dallas.
