Travis Scott ‘Wish You Were Here’ Concert Review

Aylin Ortega, Writer

First off, it was amazing. No doubt about it, Travis Scott is a natural performer, it’s the most hyped I’ve ever been at a concert. Before we even get to Travis, however, let’s talk about the openers.

Gunna, Sheck Wes, and Trippie Redd were all scheduled to perform as openers to Travis Scott. If you didn’t wait in the merch line, you’d get to hear Sheck Wes perform a few songs, most notably Mo Bamba. It felt like a mini earthquake that rattled the stands. After Wes, Gunna performed, and played Drip or Drown, Space Cadet, and Drip Too Hard, and more. It was fun and I enjoyed myself. Afterwards, however, we waited about 30 minutes before we realized Trippie wasn’t coming. We checked his instagram for any word, and apparently he dropped out of the rest of the tour dates due to his frustration with the long waits for Travis to set up. I don’t see the problem, as ALL performers take long to set up, but tell that to Trippie.

After some disappointment, we patiently waited another 30 minutes for Travis to come out. Suddenly, the lights shut off, and everyone started to scream as he kicks the concert off with his hit ‘Stargazing.’ There were pyrotechnics, an inflatable astronaut suit, the iconic Head sculpture that is on the  album cover of Astroworld, and this is where Cesar Pulido, ‘19 said “I am in a dream.” It was actually insane, he played some of his older hits like ‘90210,’ ‘Goosebumps,’ and ‘Mamacita.’ He even played some songs he was featured in like ‘Love Galore,’ and ‘ZEZE.’ He ended the night with Sicko Mode, and I’m only just  a little disappointed he didn’t bring Drake out. Overall, it was a 9/10 experience.
