Travis Scott Brings His Utopia – Circus Maximus Tour to Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena

After shouting out Drake, The Weeknd and Wondagurl last time, the hip-hop superstar is back at the arena for the second time in just over a week. Could there be special guests?

Travis Scott Brings His Utopia – Circus Maximus Tour to Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena

Travis Scott is coming back to Toronto's Scotiabank Arena for the second time in just over a week. The hip-hop superstar's Utopia – Circus Maximus Tour last hit the venue on December 29, and now he's starting the year back there again on Saturday, January 6.

He's no stranger to the arena, having played there 8 times throughout his career. True arena artists are rare in hip-hop, but Scott has a skill for filling any size room, complete with huge props and spectacular sets. He performs with major energy, and somehow his arena shows still get huge mosh pits.


The Circus Maximus tour, presented with Live Nation, is Travis Scott's first since the tragic crowd crush at his 2021 Astroworld Festival in Houston. It's in support of his Utopia album, which charted all 19 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 when it was released in 2023.

Travis Scott has deep history in Toronto. He's had major collaborations with both The Weeknd and Drake, including his first No. 1 hit "Sicko Mode." He also played a different Drake collab last week in Toronto: the relative deep cut "Company," from Drake's 2015 project If You're Reading This It's Too Late.

He shouted out both the Weeknd and local producer Wondagurl, too, his collaborator since she was a teenager.

Travis Scott is known for special guests, so he could have something special up his sleeve for this concert.

One song he'll almost definitely play: his Playboi Carti collaboration "FE!N." He recently played it 10 times in a row in Brooklyn (but only 6 in Toronto).

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
