Scott, who is from Houston, urged his fellow Texans to make sure they vote in an impassioned speech at the Bayland Community Center that was captured on Twitter; you can watch it by playing the video at the bottom of this article. His ties to the area run deep; not only was he born and raised in the state, but he also attended college at the University of Texas-San Antonio before dropping out to move to New York City and pursue his music career.
That makes it no surprise that he'd turn up at a rally where the whole objective is to motivate citizens to vote and help the state of Texas. But Scott wasn't the only Texas-born musical artist to show up for O'Rourke; Pitchfork reports that rock band Spoon (who are from Austin) and country legend Willie Nelson (who hails from Abbott) were also there, with the latter even getting the candidate to join him for a jam session.
Scott dropped into the Beto O'Rourke rally ahead of his fall 2018 tour, which begins Nov. 8 in Baltimore, Maryland. The Astroworld: Wish You Were Here Tour will keep the rapper on the road until just before Christmas. Fans can get tickets to his Dec. 4 show at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio through the AXS event page, and tickets for his Dec. 8 show at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota through that AXS event page.
The tour also stops in Texas shortly after the midterm elections, so if O'Rourke is elected, Scott can drop back in and say hello to the new senator.
