There were some hiccups in the road to get to release day for Scott. The original plan was to debut the album at the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. Unfortunately, it was announced two days prior that the concert and livestream have been canceled.
“We regret to inform you that the UTOPIA show, originally scheduled for July 28th at the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt is canceled,” Live Nation said in a statement on Twitter.
“Unfortunately, despite highest efforts, complex production issues meant that the show could not be constructed in the desert. We understand that this news is disappointing and not the outcome any of us desired,” Live Nation added in the statement.
Scott addressed his fans adding that he has other plans up his sleeve.
“Egypt at the pyramids will happen But due to demand and detail logistics They just need a bit a time to set lay on lands,” the rapper wrote. “I will keep u posted on a date which will be soon love you alllll.”But in good news I had 4 more of these type of experiences in other places,” he added in an additional tweet. “COORDINATES SOON REACH.”
