Jacques Bermon Webster II aka Travis Scott has released a statement after eight people were reported to have died at his concert on Friday.

"My fans really mean the world to me and I always wanna leave them with a positive experience and anytime I can make out anything that’s going on, I stop the show and help them get the help they need, you know?" he said.

The AstroWolrd festival that was reported to have been attended by about 500,000 people saw them get closer to the front that led to compressing of people.

Injured people were rushed to the hospital.

The concert was held at the NRG Park in Houston on Friday.
