Travis Scott's Astroworld Tour 101: What You Need to Know

Travis Scott is currently in the middle of his Astroworld: Wish You Were Here tour, which is basically an amusement park, crossed with a concert, wrapped up in an Ulta Beauty store. (Yeah, Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits are for sale.) In other words, you don’t want to miss it—so here’s everything you need to know about Scott’s third tour, including how to get tickets, what the merch situation is like, and why Nicki Minaj has been so pissed about it all.

The VIP Tickets

Okay, so there are VIP tickets but they aren’t that exciting—especially considering they’ll cost ya $249. If you want to spring for a VIP experience, you’ll get access to the floor before other ticket holders, great seats, free parking or an Uber credit, and you can buy fancy food and drinks. But what you don’t seem to get is access to Travis, so…


The Experience

The Astroworld tour is modeled after an amusement park, as in there are literal rides—including a massive ferris wheel that Travis lets one lucky fan take a whirl on during every show:

The Opening Act

That would be rappers Gunna, Sheck Wes, and Trippie Redd—but Travis has also been joined on stage by the likes of Drake, and apparently Kanye West and Off White’s Virgil Abloh will join him on select dates. Here’s a taste of what to expect:

The Drama

In case you missed it due to being busy with drama in your own life, Nicki Minaj was SUPER pissed about Travis’ Astroworld tour announcement. Mostly because Kylie Jenner promoted it, and apparently Nicki wasn’t here for that noise. Here’s what she said:

I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. lol. Im actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.

LOL, kay.

The Merch

Travis’ Astroworld merch plan is best described as genius. The rapper created a capsule collection before his tour even started (which included a shirt designed by Virgil Abloh), and everyone who purchased an item also got a digital copy of his album—something called bundling, which Nicki Minaj was (surprise, surprise) not happy about.

While most of Travis’ initial merch has already sold out on his site, the swag situation available on tour is supposedly awesome. And it includes Lip Kits. Which brings us to….

The Fam

Not only are Kylie Jenner and Stormi joining Travis on tour, but Kylie has teamed up with her boo to create Astroworld Lip Kits:

The makeup mogul has been documenting their time on tour together, and recently shared this really sweet tribute to Travis:
