Telling Charlamagne Tha God he was not aware of the severity of the situation.
“It’s so crazy ’cause I’m that artist, too,” Travis told Charlamagne during the sit-down.
“Anytime you can hear something like that, you wanna stop the show. You wanna make sure the fans get the proper attention they need. And anytime I could see something like that, I did. I stopped a couple times just to make sure everybody was OK.”
Travis went on to say;
“You have a venue filled with 50,000 people. But it’s like a sea, you have lights, you have sound, you got pyros, you got your in-ears, you got sound, you got your mics, got the music, [you] got bands. All types of stuff going on.”
