Travis Scott and the organisers of the Astroworld event where a crowd crush left eight people dead have been sued by at least three concertgoers over injuries they sustained.

Kristian Parades, 23, has sought damages worth $1m for the injuries he says he sustained during the concert, as he accused Scott and Aubrey Drake Graham of negligence.

Patrick Stennis and Manuel Souza have also filed lawsuits in Harris County against Scott and concert company Live Nation. At least two criminal investigations are now underway into the deadly stampede which took place on the opening night of the Astroworld music festival in Houston, Texas.

The sold-out headline show by rapper and festival organiser Travis Scott turned deadly when guests began pushing towards the front of the stage, crushing some leaving many unable to breathe.

Officials said a 14-year-old was among the victims, and narcotics bureau agents are involved amid reports that a security guard may have been injected with drugs as the chaos unfolded.

The mayor of Houston has vowed to “leave [no] stone unturned” in investigating the disaster, while Scott said in a message to fans that he is “absolutely devastated.”
