Travis Scott is getting to work to ensure an event like the Astroworld tragedy never happens again, joining leaders from government and music in a first of its kind initiative … TMZ has learned.
Sources with direct knowledge tell us Travis has spent the last few weeks meeting with leaders from The United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) — a group that represents the interests of more than 1,400 cities across the country.
We’re told the goal is to form a committee made up of members of government, public safety, emergency response, health care event management, music and technology — and create a safety report for future shows to follow and ensure safety and security.
We’ve obtained an outline of the group’s goals, which also states it will “aggressively focus on new technologies and innovations that offer ways to address these challenges.”
Outside of Travis, the report will be led by the Chair of the Conference’s Tourism, Art, Parks, Entertainment and Sports Committee and Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve.
You’ll remember, it was during Travis’ first interview since Astroworld last week when he told Charlamagne Tha God he felt it was his responsibility to fix things moving forward and to be sure something like the Houston tragedy never happened again.
Of course, the interview was not met well by some of the families of the 10 victims who lost their lives at the festival. Valerie Cortinas Fisher, the attorney for the family of 23-year-old Rudy Peña said despite what Travis thought, the interview didn’t heal anyone — telling us anyone can act sorry on camera — but it’s the action after that counts.
However, it appears with the new committee Travis is doing more than just talking.
