Travis Scott returned to the stage Saturday night for his first live public performance in six months since he held his fatal Astroworld music festival.

Insider previously reported that 10 people died and hundreds more were injured after crowds surged at the Houston, Texas festival.

Last weekend Scott, 31, performed for around 45 minutes alongside his frequent collaborator Quavo from the rap group Migos at the nightclub E11Even in Miami, Florida, according to a report by the New York Post’s Page Six.

Before Scott took the stage, the rapper threw what Page Six described as a “wad of cash” into the crowd and spoke to the attendees. He then performed at least four songs, including “Sicko Mode” from his 2018 album “Astroworld,” the outlet said.

“Everybody owes me a shot,” he told the crowd, Page Six reported. “We need every stripper to report to the fucking stage right now. We need every bottle reported to this motherfucking floor.”

Scott can also be seen standing on top of a large speaker performing as money is being thrown around the crowd in a video posted to club E11Even’s Instagram Story.

This is Scott’s first performance since the Astroworld tragedy where 10 people, who ranged in age from 9 to 27, died during the music festival where crowds surged creating a stampede, Insider previously reported.

At the time, Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña told reporters at a news conference that around 50,000 people compressed toward the stage while the rapper performed at NRG Park in Houston. In total, Pena said 17 people were taken to hospitals, 11 of whom were in cardiac arrest.

There have been close to 300 lawsuits filed against Scott and concert organizers following the tragedy, Insider reported. In one lawsuit, lawyers for Manuel Souza, a Houston resident who was trampled at the festival, said the tragedy was “predictable and preventable.”

A lawyer for Scott said on “Good Morning America” last November that he was never informed during his Astroworld performance that police had declared a “mass casualty” event at the sold-out show, Insider previously reported.

“There was obviously a systemic breakdown” at the concert “that we really need to get to the bottom of before we start pointing fingers at anyone,” Edwin F. McPherson said.
