CRACKPOT conspiracy theorists have sensationally claimed that the tragic deaths of eight people at Travis Scott’s “hellish” Astroworld concert last week came as part of a “satanic blood sacrifice.”

Scott staged the event in his hometown of Houston, Texas on Friday night, but the concert ended in tragedy when the crowd of around 50,000 people suddenly surged towards the stage, crushing some attendees.

The eight victims’ ages ranged from 14 to 27 and have all since been identified.

More than 300 others were also injured. At least 23 people were hospitalized, five of whom were under 18. Eleven of those taken to hospital suffered cardiac arrest.
