Egyptian Musicians Union vs. Travis Scott
News broke last week that the Egyptian Musicians Union, which issues concert permits, canceled Travis Scott’s show because he was concerned about the “safety and protection of the public”.
Dr. Mohamed Abdullah, in a statement on behalf of the Musicians’ Union received by Egypt Today, stated that “Regarding the concert of American rapper Travis Scott on July 28 at the Pyramids of Giza, the Musicians’ Union, as the body responsible for licensing music and singing concerts in Egypt, agreement with the Egyptian Ministry of Culture, represented by the Office of Artistic Censorship and the Ministry of Labour, stresses the need to take into account safety aspects and obtain permits from the relevant authorities as a top priority when organizing concerts. This is necessary to ensure the safety and protection of the population.”
Live Nation responded promptly to these reports and denied that The Travis Scott Show was cancelled. “There were no changes to the Travis Scott show in Egypt. Any news to the contrary is false. We can’t wait to celebrate Utopia with you in Egypt,” he wrote in a statement to Billboard.
