Travis Scott returned to the stage for the first time since the Astroworld Festival tragedy in November 2021, which left several fans dead after a crowd stampede.

“He was in a good mood. He DJed a bit and also got closer to the crowd and sang some of his songs,” an eyewitness exclusively told Us Weekly. The 30-year-old “Sicko Mode” rapper performed in Los Angeles Darren Dzienciol and Richie Akiva‘s Oscars 2022 party on Saturday March 26th.

Scott – who welcomed his second child with a girlfriend KylieJenner in February – performed at the Bel Air Estate Party in Los Angeles just after midnight. The source notes that he hasn’t spoken much into the mic aside from his musical set, but he did have a special guest cheering him on.

Tyga – who previously dated the 24-year-old Kylie Cosmetics founder between 2014 and 2017 – was spotted with his friends in the VIP area when he heard Scott’s performance.

“He got up to listen to Travis and then sat back down,” the insider adds. Explaining that Tyga seemed eager to see Scott’s return to the stage, the party-goer remarked, “[Tyga] could [have] left and went to another room but chose to stay in the main room to see his performance.

The 32-year-old “Aye” rapper was linked to the beauty mogul for almost two years, but remained on good terms after they called it quits in April 2017. Tyga eventually moved on with her friend Camaryn Swanson while the reality star started seeing Scott.

“We’re not friends,” Jenner said of Tyga during the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reunion in June 2021. “But we’re fine. When I accompany him or meet him somewhere, I always wish him all the best. I don’t have bad feelings towards him.”

The Texas native’s performance on Saturday marked the first time he has taken the stage since the Astroworld tragedy. Ten fans died – and others were injured – in a “mass casualty accident” following a mass stampede at his sold-out music festival in Houston.

“I just want to send prayers to those who got lost last night,” the Highest in the Room actress, who also shares daughter Stormi, 4, with Jenner, tearfully declared in a series of Instagram Stories. Videos in November 2021 “You know, my fans really mean the world to me and I always want to leave them with only one positive experience, and every time I can tell anything is going on I would just quit the show and, know You, help them get the help they need. I just couldn’t imagine the seriousness of the situation.”

He continued at the time: “Everyone, keep your prayers. I mean, I’m honestly just devastated and I could never imagine something like that happening.”

After the accident, officials launched an investigation into the cause. Meanwhile, Scott lost several business deals and performing opportunities. He later offered to pay for the funeral expenses and other help for the victims.
