The Astroworld – Wish You Were Here Tour is the third concert tour by American recording artist Travis Scott in support of his third studio album Astroworld (2018). The tour began in Baltimore at Royal Farms Arena as the first leg on November 8, 2018 and concluded its second leg in Tulsa at BOK Center on March 26, 2019.[1]

Background[edit]

The tour was officially announced via Scott's Instagram on August 16, 2018. He announced "Ive Been Ready To Get Back On Road For A Long Time!! Astroworld Tour Is Finally Here!!". In August 2018, prior to the start of the tour, Scott announced "this is leg one Europe and other cities coming soon". At the start of the tour, Scott announced "more dates TBS".[2] Scott also announced that Virgil Abloh, Sheck Wes, Trippie Redd, and Gunna would perform opening acts.[3]

On December 7th 2018, it was announced that Redd would no longer support Scott as an opening act for the duration of the tour due to "production issues" and cut down set times. [4]

On June 10th, 2019, Travis announced a show at London’s O2 Arena where he would officially end the tour.[1]

Setup[edit]

The initial idea of the Astroworld – Wish You Were Here Tour was to revive the childhood amusement park, Six Flags AstroWorld, so each stage was decorated in a fashion reminiscent of the theme park with features such as a small functioning ferris wheel and roller coaster.[5] Instead of having one stage for the show, there were two stages, one on each end of the arena.[6][7]

Critical reception[edit]

North America[edit]

The show was reviewed positively by Charles Holmes in Rolling Stone,[8] Julian Kimble in The Washington Post,[9] and by Chris DeVille of Stereogum.[10]
