The Sauce, With Sos 11/8/21


Officials say eight people are dead and hundreds were injured in the tragedy that occurred at the third annual Astroworld concert in Houston on Friday night. An estimated crowd of 50-thousand attended the concert, which was organized and headlined by Travis Scott. SZA, Master P, Yves Tumor, Toro y Moi, Roddy Ricch, and Lil Baby performed that night before Travis took the stage at around 8:45pm and brought out surprise guest Drake. 

  • The trouble reportedly started after 9pm. According to Houston Fire Department Chief Samuel Peña, “The crowd began to compress toward the front of the stage and that caused some panic and started causing some injuries. People began to fall out and become unconscious and that created additional panic.”
  • Peña said that a “mass casualty” incident was triggered at 9:38pm. His team transported 17 people to the hospital – 11 of whom were in cardiac arrest at the time. While there was a medical tent on site, the festival staff was quickly overwhelmed by the situation, which led his team to dispatch as many 50 units.
  • Videos shared on social media show chaos all night. Before the main tragedy, hundreds of concertgoers toppled steel barricades and stormed through security to access the concert. During the actual event, medical personnel can be seen carrying young people out on stretchers and attempting CPR on others. One clip shows Travis still performing while several in attendance try to inform security guards of the emergency.
  • Houston Police Chief Troy Finner – who’d noticed attendees “going down” – said authorities were investigating reports of suspicious activity in the crowd, including a security officer who said he felt a prick in his neck during the chaos and lost consciousness while being examined by first responders. He was revived by the opioid antidote Narcan.
  • Reps for Astroworld cancelled the Saturday segment of the festival and released a statement – “Our hearts are with the Astroworld Festival family tonight – especially those we lost and their loved ones. We are focused on supporting local officials however we can.”



Kanye West is making his feelings about Kim Kardashian very public. In a rare interview with Revolt TV's Drink Champs, he said his kids want him and Kim to stay together and that HE wants to be with her. He also claimed he’s never seen the divorce papers – in spite of her “Saturday Night Live” joke about their split.

In addition, Ye seems to blame the media – and Hulu specifically – for the breakup of his family. “I wanna pull my family back together. I’m assuming this interview is not too helpful to that,” he said, adding, “It’s MY family, Hulu.”

The whole thing is complicated by rumors Ye is dating model Vinetria. And he also unfollowed Kim – again – on Instagram in light of her alleged relationship with Pete Davidson.
