How did Travis Scott get permission to perform on the Pyramids?

Travis Scott just announced that for his next album’s release he’ll be taking over the pyramids. Yes, the actual IRL Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. We’re not sure how he got permission to do that either, but you have to admit it’s going to be f***ing amazing.

A good (or bad) venue can make or break an artist’s performance, no matter how amazing they are on stage, but we’ve never heard of a concert venue quite as jaw-dropping as the Pyramids of Giza. Taking place on Friday 28th July, the live-streamed performance has already sold out and the album hasn’t even dropped yet. Basically, Travis’ fans are going into this blind.

This is because the performance is actually going to be the unveiling of Travis Scott’s “world of Utopia” – the title of his upcoming album, which is currently available to pre-order, alongside CDs, vinyl, and “Utopia” themed apparel. The physical album is currently priced at $50 plus tax and shipping, and yeah, that’s on top of the price of the plane ticket to Egypt, but who’s complaining?

When clicking through to pre-order the album, you’ll find that there will actually be five different album covers released for “Utopia”, none of which has yet been revealed to the public, and no one will find out which one they’ll get from the pre-order until the album’s yet-to-be-announced release date. Basically, the suspense is real.

Will you be flying out to the Pyramids of Giza to watch Travis Scott’s performance of the century in person, or just live streaming from your bedroom like the majority of us?
