Travis Scott and the organisers of Astroworld have been sued by an injured concertgoer, Manuel Souza. His lawyers filed a petition in Harris County District Court suing Scott, event organiser ScoreMore and concert giant Live Nation over the Friday night incident, according to Billboard, calling the incident “predictable and preventable.”

Astroworld, a sold-out headline show by rapper and festival organiser Travis Scott turned deadly over the weekend when guests began pushing towards the front of the stage, crushing some and reportedly leaving them unable to breathe. The incident left 8 dead and many more injured.

Following the incident and outrage online, the mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, has vowed to “leave [no] stone unturned” in investigating the disaster while the rapper uploaded a video post saying he was “absolutely devastated.”

The Houston police have confirmed that there are two investigations underway into the deadly stampede which took place during the opening night of the Astroworld music festival in Houston, Texas.
