The decision to cancel the license was not taken lightly. Extensive research and meticulous examination of documented information led the Board of Directors to conclude that Travis Scott's music and live performances contained elements that clashed with our authentic societal values and traditions.
While the statement does not explicitly detail the nature of these "strange rituals," it appears to allude to the unfortunate crowd surge incident that occurred during the Astroworld music festival in 2021.
Despite the cancellation, Travis Scott's manager has denied the false rumors surrounding the event. It is evident that the decision to cancel the concert was driven by the Syndicate's commitment to upholding cultural integrity and ensuring the well-being of concertgoers.
