The announcement just a week ago sent fans into a frenzy: Travis Scott is at the Circus Maximus in Rome presenting his new project Utopia. Everyone knew that this would be a significant event, and so it was.
Last night, August 7th, there were 60,000 of them to attend Travis’ explosive concert which was full of surprises. One above all: Kanye West. “There is no Utopia without Kanye West, there is no Travis Scott without Kanye West, there is no Rome without Kanye West,” the Houston rapper with whom he sang “Praise God” introduced West to the Roman public from a disco. “Donda” and then “I can’t say anything” is a classic from ex-husband Kim Kardashian’s repertoire. Travis and Kanye have a long-standing relationship, and not just a working one, as Scott himself testified with a photo posted among his Instagram Stories.
West hasn’t performed live in over a year, also due to numerous controversies that saw him as a main character and caused him to isolate himself from show business: from harshly anti-Semitic statements to rhetoric against the black community, Kanye recently made headlines more for his ideas. than for his music. That there was a new beginning at the Circus Maximus yesterday?
The satisfaction of everyone who watched the show was really great, except for one episode. In a video posted to social media, dozens of fans are seen crowding around the railings during the concert because, as some netizens explained, “someone used pepper spray.” Many complain of burning and lacrimation. Fortunately, no serious consequences were recorded.
