"I got the call a couple days ago asking if I wanted to come out," Travis Scott told the crowd, a last minute addition in Fetty Wap's stead, whose crew fell victim to border issues. "The one thing I know about Quebec is that you motherfuckers know how to rage," he continued. "So if you can't survive the rage, then get the fuck out!"
Scott has more than enough material designed to amp up crowds of any size, but in execution, his fragmented set was more a test of rising and falling energy rather than keeping his foot on the gas the entire time. While the crowd was charged up for "Mamacita" and opened a mosh pit at Scott's command for "Don't Play," running snippets of Kanye West's "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1" and Big Sean's "All Your Fault" took some of the wind out of the crowd's sails, turning them up again for one run through of the hook from his own "Upper Echelon."
In using his AutoTune live, Scott's command of the effect was stronger than it had been in past performances, staying locked in key for "90210," his verse and hook on Wiz Khalifa's "Bake Sale," and his latest collaboration with Young Thug in "Pick Up the Phone," all of which gave way to a final blowout with "Antidote."
As he's been known to do during his past few live dates, Scott also took a moment to share some info on his upcoming work, telling the audience that he had signed a deal with Apple Music only two days ago and that a radio show for the service and his new LP Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight would be arriving "very soon."
