Travis Scott gives microphone to fan who stormed his Leeds Festival set

The fan ended up joining in with Scott's performance

Travis Scott has had his set at Leeds interrupted by a fan who managed to make his way past security and onto the stage.

After the fan left the stage, Scott continued to perform songs from his acclaimed new album ‘Astroworld.’

Recently, the star was criticised by Nicki Minaj first on social media, then again later on her radio show, after Scott beat her to the number one slot in the album charts.

“The sprawling album’s highlight may occur during the elegiac, near-religious, calming coda to that final track. It’s a moment that encapsulates the scope and ambition of ‘Astroworld’. Scott moves from such introspection to the bawdy chant of “Fuck the Club Up” on the clattering ‘No Bystanders’, on which he raps, “Family Function, I ain’t no friends.
