Travis Scott Sells Over $1Million Worth Of Merchandise
According to reports, Travis Scott broke the previous UK sales record held by BTS by selling over $1 million worth of merchandise during his two shows in the Big Smoke.
Prices for hoodies created especially for the rapper’s London concerts ranged from $100 to $125, while those for tees ranged from $45 to $75, and hats were $45 each.
Scott headlined London’s O2 Arena on the 6th and 7th of August.
According to a source who spoke to TMZ, Travis established a record for musicians in the UK by selling more than $1 million worth of goods at his weekend shows in London.
According to the insider, the rapper is the only musician to have sold at least $1 million worth of merchandise in the United Kingdom.
They stated that BTS made just under $1 million in merchandise sales during their Love Yourself World Tour UK performances at London’s O2 on October 9 and 10.
After a violent stampede claimed 10 lives at his Astroworld Festival performance last year, Travis Scott’s London O2 shows marked his debut arena performances in London.
His first London performance since the Astroworld incident didn’t go without hitches. An audience member attempted to throw a large object onto the stage during Travis’ most recent performance, but it missed him.
Travis was angry by the interruption to his show, but he persisted in rapping and wouldn’t let it derail him.
The rapper’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner and their child Stormi attended the performances with him.
After Astroworld, Travis mostly withdrew from the public eye; consequently, plans for him to perform at Coachella this year were cancelled.
The tragic incident’s death toll increased to 10 when Ezra Blount, a nine-year-old child, passed away from his injuries.
