On Monday (May 9), Billboard announced that Houston rapper Travis Scott is set to perform at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 15 at 8PM ET / 5PM PT. This will mark the first award show performance from the rapper after the Astroworld tragedy, which left 10 people dead.
In addition to Travis, the award show will see performances by Mary J. Blige, Burna Boy, Latto, Maxwell, Megan Thee Stallion, Silk Sonic, Ed Sheeran, Becky G, Elle King, Miranda Lambert, Rauw Alejandro, and more. Over the weekend, the rapper made his first appearance on stage since the catastrophe at Astroworld. He took to the stage and performed a few tracks in Miami at the E11even Nightclub. The Miami performance marked the first time in six months that he had touched any stage publicly.
While Travis’ E11even performance marked his first public set since stepping out of the spotlight amid backlash over his Astroworld tragedy – in addition to backlash on how he handled the catastrophe – Travis’ 2022 Billboard Music Awards appearance will mark the first award show performance since the tragedy – which occurred back in November 2021.
