After the tour dates were announced,  fans noticed the absence of Travis’ hometown of Houston and immediately questioned why.

No Houston for Travis Scott’s tour doesn’t make sense but makes sense all at the same time

There’s no houston date for the utopia tour. Travis must be bringing back the festival right?

This tour marks the first non-festival headlining show done by Scott in the U.S. since his Astroworld festival in Houston left 10 dead after a crowd surge. Billboard reports that Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner recently released a statement confirming that the rapper would return to the city, and Houston Police Department Union president Douglas Griffith said that Oct. 19 and Nov. 20 “were the dates in which were proposed for the return.”

The fallout from the deadly festival could be a reason for the missing tour stop or Travis could have something special planned for his hometown. Either way, a performance in Houston won’t come without pushback.

Tickets for the tour will go on sale Thursday via at 10 a.m. local time.
