The 32-year-old rapper, performing at a festival in his hometown of Houston, Texas in November 2021, was tragically marked by a mass crowd crush that claimed the lives of 10 people near the stage. In the aftermath, lawsuits were directed at him and Live Nation, the event organizers. Recently, one such lawsuit has been resolved.

Ceremony of Roses (CoR), tasked with providing various attractions like carnival-style games at the concert, has filed for dismissal of their lawsuit regarding financial losses incurred during the event. Documents filed last week, as obtained by The Blast, outlined the company’s request for the entire case to be thrown out of court, effectively resolving all disputes raised by the involved parties. However, they asked for dismissal without prejudice, leaving open the possibility of bringing the same lawsuit again in the future.

In their initial lawsuit, CoR detailed their agreement with Scoremore Holdings, a promoter designated by Live Nation, to enhance the fan experience and boost ticket sales with additional attractions. The agreement involved CoR financing, setting up, operating, and dismantling the amusements, with the potential to recoup costs and earn a share of additional revenue. However, the festival’s cancellation following the tragedy prevented CoR from recovering expenses and realizing any expected profits.

Although the compensation sought wasn’t specified, the company indicated incurring at least US$700,000 ($1.2 million) in expenses.

Travis Scott, the rapper, has expressed his ongoing thoughts about the tragedy, describing his fans as family and expressing empathy for the victims and their families. He admitted feeling “overly devastated” by the incident and found solace in channeling his emotions into his recent album, Utopia. Scott highlighted the therapeutic aspect of music-making, allowing him to process the events and emotions surrounding the tragedy.
