US rapper Travis Scott is set to perform at the upcoming Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2023 in Jeddah, it’s been revealed. The three-day racing event, which is taking place from March 17 to 19, will welcome the world’s most famous drivers as well as some of the biggest names in music.
The concert will take place on the Main Stage of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, F1’s longest and fastest street circuit, where the Grammy award-winning rapper will perform some of his biggest hits such as Butterfly Effect, Antidote, and Sicko Mode to a live crowd for the first time in Saudi Arabia. The performance will come just days after his headlining concert at the inaugural Abu Dhabi Wireless Festival taking place in the UAE capital on March 11.

Fans of Kylie Jenner’s baby daddy will remember that he was scheduled to perform in the Kingdom on Nov. 19 last year, but canceled the show after eight people were left dead at his annual Astroworld Festival in 2021. Following the tragedy, Scott helped cover the funeral costs of the eight attendees who passed away and teamed up with BetterHelp to provide free one-on-one online therapy services to festival attendees who need them.
After a long hiatus that saw him cancel all of his shows, he made his onstage comeback in May last year, when he performed at E11even, a club in Miami, during the Miami Grand Prix.
The rapper is the first artist to be announced for this year’s after-race concerts in Saudi Arabia. However, the exact date of his performance and the other headliners are yet to be revealed. Watch this space.
