Technically, the performance—as has been widely reported since its announcement last month—marked Scott’s first public performance since the fatal crowd crush incident at last year’s Astroworld Festival in Houston. Per a report from TMZ including footage of Saturday night’s performance at Miami’s E11EVEN night club, Scott performed for a total of roughly 45 minutes.
Scott was previously reported to have made similar appearances at private events, including a surprise five-song set at a Coachella afterparty in April. That same month, Scott was confirmed to be among the headliners for the upcoming trio of Primavera Sound festivals, marking his first such performance commitment since the aforementioned Astroworld Festival tragedy. His new album, Utopia, is expected to arrive at some point this year.
