When Travis Scott released his two-pack of songs “ESCAPE PLAN” and “MAFIA” in early November 2021, fans presumed these would be the lead promotional singles for his upcoming fourth studio album Utopia. But, considering the Astroworld Fest catastrophe that took place the next day set Travis’ plans back, it now appears that the journey to Utopia has not yet begun, technically.
On Monday (Aug. 1), Zouk Nightclub in Las Vegas, known for brining in some of the mainstream’s most coveted performers, announced they will be hosting a Travis Scott residency this fall. Travis’ Vegas stay, dubbed the “Road to Utopia,” will include seven shows, although only two have been given dates: Sept. 17 and Oct. 15. Tickets can be purchased on the Zouk Group website here.
Throughout the first half of 2022, Travis Scott has been soft-launching his return to live performances and releasing music, keeping in mind the sensitivity surrounding these issues considering the hit his reputation took due to the festival fiasco. With scattered live sets at the Billboard Music Awards, Coney Island 4th of July and London, along with being brought out by Future at Rolling Loud, Scott’s first release of the year in his, Southside‘s and Future’s April track “Hold That Heat” has been heard live by numerous fans.
But, as Travis stans were expecting Utopia to be given an early fall release date, similar to ASTROWORLD‘s August and Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight & Rodeo‘s September drops, this residency begs to differ. Perhaps we could be looking to much into the “Road to Utopia” title, but if this is to serve as a hint for hip-hop heads, it would be fair to believe that Utopia may not be releasing in 2022 at all.
This past calendar year has been a brutal one for hungry Travis Scott fans, and their idol has been the first one to teach them that patience is a virtue.
