HOUSTON, November 09, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eight people were killed, and more than 300 others were injured on the opening night of the third-annual Astroworld Festival, a sold-out weekend concert event held at NRG Park in Houston, TX. More than 50,000 concert-goers were in attendance, many under the age of 18.
Houston Police Chief Troy Finner shared crowd safety concerns the day of the event with its founder, Travis Scott.
