Before that, the “goosebumps” rapper is set to perform at the O2 arena in London on August 6-7.

The residency announcement comes as the hip-hop star faces multiple lawsuits over the Astroworld tragedy last November.

Travis has performed a few gigs since 10 people were killed at his music festival in Houston, Texas.

Eight crowd members died in a terrifying crash on the first night of his event at NRG Park.

Two other revelers died of their injuries in hospital in the days following the event, while 300 spectators were injured.

In May, the ‘Antidote’ star performed at the Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Travis performed his first public concert since the disaster at a club in Miami, Florida earlier this month.

He previously made a short appearance at a Coachella after party on April 17. He also performed at a private pre-Oscars party in Bel-Air on March 26.

Travis was recently sued by a woman who claimed she had a miscarriage after being run over at Astroworld.

The event’s organizers were hit with a wrongful death lawsuit from Shanazia Williamson, who accused them of “failure to plan, design, manage, operate, equip and supervise” the concert.

Shanazia – who also sued Live Nation, Scoremore Holdings, ASM Global, Harris Co. Sports Convention and other companies that organized the festival – claimed in documents obtained by Rolling Stone magazine that she was stomped on and run over during the influx of crowds and that she had been left with “breathing trouble, chest pain and pain in her left leg”.

The woman initially filed a lawsuit only for her injuries, but filed an amended lawsuit more than a month later citing wrongful death and mentioning stomach injuries.

In Texas, the law states that a fetus “that dies as a result of neglect may be the basis of a wrongful death lawsuit.”

Nearly 5,000 attendees claimed to have been injured at the festival and hundreds have filed lawsuits over the tragedy, but they have been consolidated and are being dealt with by a single judge.

In March, the “Goosebumps” hitmaker announced Project HEAL, a long-term series of philanthropy and investment efforts to “honor” the victims of the tragedy.
