The Grammy-nominated rapper performed his first solo performance since the Astroworld Festival last year on Saturday night at London’s O2 Arena. Around 9:30 p.m. local time, “Hold That Heat” gave a fantastic opening performance to the two-night, sold-out event. Videos posted on social media showed Scott atop a raised platform covered with fireworks. Naturally, Scott’s enthusiasm was quickly matched by the crowd, who could be seen bouncing and cheering throughout the first act.
Scott continued to play a number of additional tracks before leaving the stage. The final playlist included songs including “Mamacita,” “God’s Country,” “Escape Plan,” and “Highest in the Room.”
Scott’s second O2 performance will take place on Sunday night. Scott’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner is presently in London with their 4-year-old daughter Stormi to support him during his big weekend. James Harden and Kevin Durant might be seen praising Jenner in a post-show recap on her Instagram.
The rapper has performed at the Billboard Music Awards and made an unexpected cameo at Rolling Loud Miami during the past several months, but the O2 dates will be his first headline performances since the tragic events at his Astroworld Festival in November 2021.
