Travis Scott is the latest musician to land a Las Vegas residency.

The rapper announced Monday that he is heading to Nevada for a new concert residency titled Road to Utopia at Zouk Nightclub.

His residency will kick off on 17 September – 10 months after a crowd rush at his Astroworld Festival resulted in the deaths of 10 concertgoers.

According to a press release, each Road to Utopia consists of seven shows, though only two performance dates have been announced so far: 17 September and 15 October. Each show will see Scott perform a selection of his hit songs and potential previews of new material.

Scott made his first public performance since the Astroworld tragedy in May at Miami's E11EVEN Club as part of a Formula 1 Race Week celebration. In July, he then made his first music festival appearance during Future's set at Rolling Loud in Miami.

The rapper halted his set at The Day Party: Independence Day Coney Island concert in Brooklyn, last month to ask audience members to climb down from a lighting truss at the outdoor event.

Following the November tragedy, Scott has offered to pay for the victims' funeral services, but several families have declined the offer. He currently faces a class action lawsuit on behalf of nearly 2 800 other victims.
