Travis Scott headlined his first arena show since the Astroworld tragedy last fall in London on Saturday.

Travis wore a gray T-shirt with white and red designs on the front, as well as matching pants.
His hair fell into thick braids and his eyes were covered in shades of white that just had a slit over the eyes.
His first big show in many months got off to a rocky start when a fan threw a heavy object at the nine-time Grammy nominee early in his set.
The object made a loud bang behind him while he was rapping. He reportedly seemed annoyed and upset by the distraction, but kept on rapping.
On top of that awkward moment, the star also revealed a new song to the public.
