Fans' united dedication to the live La Flame experience is well-documented in Travis Scott's rise to ASTROWORLD-backed megastardom. For anyone who's caught a stop on Scott's ASTROWORLD: Wish You Were Here Tour, that loyalty has been rewarded with a show that's sure to go down as among the most rewarding arena adventures in recent history.

So when fans in Tulsa were met with word that Scott's Monday show at the BOK Center had been postponed due to "last minute production issues," their displeasure was understandably made quite apparent.

Footage from outside the venue shows a crowd of would-be La Flame witnesses chanting "Let us in, bitch!" and banging on the venue doors. According to local outlet Tulsa World, cops eventually deployed pepper balls on the crowd. Sgt. Brandon Smith told reporters that no one was hit by the pepper balls. Additionally, no injuries were reported.
