Travis Scott concert tickets to be refunded if cancellation is final: Official

If an official, final decision to cancel US rapper’s Travis Scott’s pyramids concert comes out within the next few hours tickets will be refunded with no issue, the managing director of the company selling tickets for Travis Scott’s concert Mohamed Serag told Al-Masry Al-Youm.

Serag said he was waiting for a final response on Saturday from authorities whether the concert will still go through.

Preparations were supposed to start two days ago, but the company is ready to begin preparations as soon as it receives an approval, he said.

Serag appealed to President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to intervene and allow the concert to be held, stressing that the concert is expected to cause an unprecedented tourist boom, especially as it would be broadcast to about 200 million people around the world.

He added 4,000 foreigners had already booked tickets to attend the concert in Egypt.


Egypt cancels controversial concert

The Egyptian General Syndicate for Musical Professions has canceled Scott‘s ‘Utopia’ concert, originally scheduled to be held at the foot of the pyramids on July 28.

The syndicate issued a statement regarding the concert, which had sparked widespread controversy due to Scott’s ‘satanic’ beliefs and safety concerns.

In its statement, the Musical Professions Syndicate said that security considerations and approvals from the competent authorities are its utmost priority for holding public events.

While the syndicate has approved a variety of events over the past few months, the statement explained that it was done through strict conditions to ensure that the customs and guidelines of Egyptian society are followed.
