Update: Live Nation has announced that a second Miami date has been added for Wednesday, November 29.
Last month, Travis Scott headlined Rolling Loud at Hard Rock Stadium in one of his first major performances since the Astroworld tragedy in 2021. It marked his last-ever Astroworld set, announcing that his next album, Utopia, and accompanying film Circus Maximus, would be released six days later.
Now, after the release of the album and a performance at the Circus Maximus in Rome, Scott is hitting the road, announcing the 28-date Utopia Circus Maximus Tour. The tour kicks off on October 11 in Charlotte, North Carolina, making stops in Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles along the way. Scott arrives in South Florida on November 27 for a performance at the Kaseya Center in downtown Miami. Tickets will go on sale Thursday, August 31, at 10 a.m.
The tour is in support of his fourth album, Utopia. Spanning 19 tracks and clocking in at 73 minutes, the album feels ambitious; however, it teeters toward being overwrought and bloated. The reviews have also been middling, with critics pointing out its lack of cohesion and its attempt at following Kanye West's footsteps. "Much of Utopia finds Scott attempting to recreate the highs of West's catalogue, to decidedly limp effect," wrote the Guardian's Shaad D'Souza in his two-star review of the album.
The album's launch also started with grand ambitions. Scott originally planned to launch his Utopia era with a concert at the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. However, the Egyptian Musicians Syndicate, which issues permits in the country, revoked the show's permit because it "goes against the cultural identity of the Egyptian people." Live Nation cited "complex production issues" not allowing the show to be constructed in the desert as the reason for the cancellation — which, sure, whatever you say.
The show was moved to Rome's Circus Maximus, which took place on August 7. Scott brought out Kanye West during the performance, declaring, "There is no Utopia without Kanye West. There is no Travis Scott without Kanye West. There is no Rome without Kanye West." This was West's first major appearance since making repeated anti-Semitic statements and is perhaps an attempt to rehabilitate his image.
