Eight people were killed, and more than 300 others were injured on the opening night of the third-annual Astroworld Festival, a sold-out weekend concert event held at NRG Park in Houston, TX. More than 50,000 concert-goers were in attendance, many under the age of 18.
Houston Police Chief Troy Finner shared crowd safety concerns the day of the event with its founder, Travis Scott. However, despite the organizers’ knowledge of safety issues, the night turned deadly around 9:30pm when the crowd surged toward the front of the stage, and widespread panic ensued. A criminal investigation is now underway.
Mr. Scott, Live Nation, and others involved in the event must face significant legal ramifications for their gross negligence and failure to protect concert-goers from this deadly crowd rush incident. Houston-based personal injury lawyers at Stephen Boutros, LTD. stand ready to help victims and their families secure maximum recovery from those responsible for this terrible tragedy.
