Travis Scott’s performance at the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt has been officially canceled. Though the news is certainly a let down, it doesn’t come as too much of a shock. Last week, the show was rumored to be canceled because Egyptian officials thought it could “[tamper] with the societal values, customs, and traditions of Egypt and the Arab world.” With that being said, Live Nation’s statement on the cancellation cites “production issues” as the catalyst instead. “We regret to inform you that the UTOPIA show, originally scheduled for July 28th at the Pyramids of Giza is cancelled,” their statement begins. “Unfortunately, despite highest efforts, complex production issues meant that the show could not be constructed in the desert. We understand that this news is disappointing and not the outcome any of us desired.” Live Nation then went on to assure fans that they’d be receiving refunds for any tickets they’ve purchased, apologizing for the inconvenience.
