Travis Scott isn't taking any chances when it comes to the safety of his audiences. The "Goosebumps" rapper stopped his show on Monday due to safety concerns.

Scott performed an impromptu set at the Coney Island Art Walls’ Independence Day event in New York, after first being billed simply as a "live DJ," and took the stage alongside Meek Mill. During his set, TMZ reports that the crowd at the outdoor event was packed in tight, and several concertgoers climbed up the metal lighting truss and scaffolding to get a better view, precariously dangling on the metal framework. Scott saw the fans on the truss, and immediately stopped the show to demand that they get down. The concertgoers complied and the show proceeded.

Following the event, a rep for Scott told ET, "Travis is committed to doing his part to ensure events are as safe as possible so that fans can have fun, and he encouraged fans to listen to requests from security and climb down from the lighting structures so that everyone would be able to safely enjoy that night’s performance."

Scott's performance in Coney Island came just days after he was set to headline his first concert since theAstroworld tragedy in November 2021, which resulted in the death of 10 people.

However, The Day N Vegas festival announced on Friday that the annual event had been canceled due to "a combination of logistics, timing and production issues." The festival didn't explain exactly what led to the cancelation, but it did announce that "the refund process will begin immediately."

Now Scott's first major solo show since Astroworld will be at The O2 arena in London, England, in early August, which sold out in under two hours. To meet fan demand, the rapper added a second night.

Additionally, his collaboration with Christian Dior menswear will hit retail next week.

The Houston native is also still scheduled to headline the Primavera Sound Festival, but he's only doing so for the South American leg in BrazilChile and Argentina in November, meaning Day N Vegas would have been his grand return to the festival circuit in the U.S.

In the midst of his comeback, Scott remains embroiled in multiple lawsuits filed against him (including a wrongful death lawsuit) stemming from the Astroworld tragedy.
