Megan Thee Stallion cancels Houston concert ‘out of respect’ for Astroworld victims.


Megan Thee Stallion has canceled a concert in Space City in honor of the victims of last month’s tragedy at the Astroworld Festival. Her performance was scheduled for Friday, Dec. 3, at 713 Music Hall in downtown Houston. The rap star was scheduled to be the first artist to play at the newest venue, which is located inside POST Houston, a multipurpose space formerly the Barbara Jordan Post Office. 

On Tuesday, Megan wrote a statement to The Houston Chronicle regarding the cancellation of the concert where she said: “In respect of the lives lost in Houston earlier this month, I decided to cancel my show at 713 Music Hall on December 3rd. Houston is still recovering and it is important that our community is given the right time. My heart goes out to all the families who are suffering in this difficult time. ” Friday’s concert would be a rapper’s graduation party at the University of South Texas, where Megan will receive a bachelor’s degree in health administration on Dec. 11. She has previously stated that she plans to open an assisted living facility in her hometown.

This has been a “golden” year for the singer. In November, she was honored by Glamor at the Women of the Year 2021 magazine awards. She also won two American Music Awards on November 21, though she did not perform at the event, citing personal reasons.

The two-time Grammy Award winner also recently debuted “Hottie Sauce” at Popees and has a partnership with CashApp. Megan recently launched a limited edition Hot Girl Enterprise clothing with the financial services company, and all proceeds will benefit charity in Houston and around the globe.

Ten people died and hundreds more were injured as crowds gathered at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival on November 5, where hundreds of lawsuits totaling more than $ 3 billion were triggered by this tragic event.
