Critics are being voiced on social media Travis Scott’s handling of the audience at the Astroworld FestivalHouston, Texas – Share videos of Houston musicians who stopped their performances to fix problems in the audience

Resurfaced clips of Adele, Dave Grohl and Linkin Park have gone viral since Friday night, when eight people died during the 30-year-old rapper’s performance as a crowd of 50,000 violently surged toward the stage.

In a clip of Adele, the singer stops a performance of her hit “Rolling in the Deep” to point out to medics that a fan in the crowd has fainted.

“Can you see?” she asks the medical team. “Can someone act like they care, please? Someone’s fainted over there.”

Adele is seen asking her audience to get out of the way, while she directs the medics towards the fan who needs help by using her higher view point from the stage. Prior to continuing, Adele waits until the team informs her that she has taken care.

Another viral video shows Foo Fighters frontman Grohl interrupting his show to speak with a fan who is violent.

“You don’t fucking fight at my show, you asshole,” Grohl says in the clip.

The rocker then identifies the problematic fan by describing what he’s wearing before kicking him out the venue.

“You don’t come to my show and fight. You come to my show and fucking dance,” Grohl says before adding: “I don’t put up with that bullshit.”

In a third clip that’s been getting a lot of attention online, the lead singers of Linkin Park are seen stopping a show mid-song when they notice the mosh pit is getting a bit too unruly.

“We got to look out for safety first, for real. Nobody gets hurt — that’s number one,” Mike Shinoda says in the viral video.

“We know we’ve been stressing all night about being cool, and this is the reason why,” the late Chester Bennington added. “Let’s go over it one more time: When someone falls, what do you do?”

“Pick them up!” the crowd responded in unison.

There is also a clip of the late Kurt Cobain presumably stopping an assault he’s witnessing in the crowd at a Nirvana show.

Cobain was seen dropping his guitar, running towards the front and signalling for people to exit his show.

Cobain, after the ordeal is over, sits down with his guitar to say:

“Copping a feel, eh, buddy?”

“Look at him! Look at him!” he continues, with fellow Nirvana members — including Grohl on the drums — pointing and laughing at the fleeing audience member.

Music fans have also shared videos of Chris Martin from Coldplay, Irish musician and former One Direction band member Niall Horan and the metal band Avenged Sevenfold showing great concern for their audiences’ safety.

Aside from the eight people who lost their lives at Scott’s show Friday night, 25 others were hospitalized, including a 10-year-old who is said to beIn critical condition

Scott’s shows have a history of being chaotic and risky for concert-goers, The New York Times reported. He’s currently being suedA fan was left paralysed after being pulled from the balcony and then dragged onto stage in 2017. Scott was also charged with recklessness for encouraging Lollapalooza participants to climb over barsricades.

Yet footage of Scott temporarily pausing his show when he noticed a fan had passed out, the concert didn’t stop until at least 30 minutes after emergency responders declared a “mass casualty” incident. Scott’s partner, Kylie Jenner, has claimed the rapper wasn’t “aware of any fatalities” until after the concert.

Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña said some of the blame falls on Scott for failing to take charge of the situation.

“The one person who can really call for and get a tactical pause when something goes wrong is that performer,” Peña told the Times. “They have that bully pulpit, and they have a responsibility.”
