Kanye West takes the stage at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival
Travis Scott fans got more than they bargained for Saturday night with guest performance from Kanye
West performed “Follow God” and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing
Travis headlined the Astroworld Festival in Houston, and in the middle of his set, Kanye appeared and performed his new single, “Follow God,” off his 9th studio album, “Jesus is King.”
Other performers included Gucci Mane, Migos, Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug, Marilyn Manson and Pharrell Williams.
The concert was huge … 50,000 people packed NRG Park.

Scott’s headlining set saw him bring the Jesus Is King rapper to the stage to perform “Follow God,” on the heels of dropping the song’s video on Friday.
Next, West mostly looked to the audience to rap the lyrics to “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” while it blared through the venue, an apt loophole in his promise to no longer make secular music or perform explicit versions of his previous work.
Fans went nuts, climbing barricades and stampeding into the venue. The Houston-based rapper posted the video earlier Saturday.
Three people were taken to a nearby hospital and treated for leg injuries after being trampled.
