Reason for rap star's canceled pre-Super Bowl show is ridiculous

Travis Scott was due to take the stage at Myth alongside Gucci Mane

Don't you hate it when you plan to go to a concert but the landing strip booked for your private jet is too far away?

That's what apparently happened to rap star Travis Scott, who canceled his scheduled appearance at Myth in Maplewood for a pre-Super Bowl show alongside Gucci Mane on Saturday night.

Booker Zack Chazin made the announcement ahead of the concert, and revealed the rather bizarre reason Scott was not able to perform.

The runway booked for Scott's private jet was reportedly in St. Cloud (too far away from Maplewood) and the alternative airstrip Chazin managed to find for him was too small for Scott's jet to land.

"I even found a helicopter to fly Travis from St. Cloud to the private airstrip near the venue which would have worked perfectly, except the helicopter can only fit 4 and Travis travels with 7," Chazin said.

It's the sort of thing that you'd think would have been checked earlier than a few hours before the show was due to go off.

To be fair, Scott was being ridiculously optimistic with his plans on Saturday, having been booked to perform at Myth at 10:30 p.m. Central before flying to Vegas for a 1:30 a.m. Mountain time gig.

He's also set to become a father in the next few days, with Entertainment Weekly reporting that his girlfriend Kylie Jenner is due any minute, and Scott had expressed a wish to stay close to her.
