Rapper thrown off stage for inciting stage invasion

Houston rapper Travis Scott was thrown off stage at Lollapalooza, after asking his crowd to push past security and the barriers, creating conditions deemed unsafe by the organisers.

Scott had attracted a large crowd and was creating quite an atmosphere before his set was closed down.

The crowd flooded the stage after less than three songs, with social media images showing security unable to stop the sheer volume of stage invaders. The show is also thought to have kicked off around half an hour after the scheduled time.

Pictures have emerged purporting to show Scott being led away by police, though the arrest is yet to be confirmed, and Billboard.com are reporting that Scott’s team deny any arrest has been made.
