Did 'The Simpsons' predict Astroworld? Truth about Travis Scott cover and 1992 episode
The accurate real-world future prediction on various important events by the popular television show 'The Simpsons' continues to surprise us. The Simpsons, an especially entertaining animation, is well-known for its almost always correct predictions. From the red tie that ended up being the President to traveling and living on Mars (Elon Musk has achieved this).
'The Simpsons' have made highly accurate predictions in the past. Sometimes these predictions are scary. Just like the recent one, where some latest fan theories suggest that 'The Simpsons' also predicted the recent Travis Scott’s Astroworld Music Festival tragedy way before it happened.

So What Happened in Travis Scott’s Concert?
On November 4, just a day before the Astroworld tragedy happened, Travis declared that fans could anticipate brand-new music. He published this with a black-and-white cover on 'Weekly World Truths' magazine. The cover had an animated picture of Travis on the cover of his latest song 'Escape Plan' from his album 'Dystopia'.

On the day of the concert, at least eight people have died following a stampede. The mass gathering at Houston’s NRG Park “began to compress” to the front of the stage at around 9:15 pm. All of these were making it difficult to breathe and causing them to lose consciousness. As clarified by Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña, an estimated 300 concertgoers were treated at the site, including 11 people who had a cardiac arrest.
Fan theory on Travis Scott’s concert tragedy
Many TikTok users are posting a particular video consisting of a scene from 'The Simpsons' and Travis Scott’s 'Dystopia' art and comparing them. In viral 1992 scene, Homer is seen carrying the American supermarket tabloid 'Weekly World News' with the image of the fictional character Bat Boy.

The note present on the cover says, “Bat Boy accurately predicts final four.” The animated picture of Travis on his latest song 'Escape Plan' from his album, 'Dystopia', is very similar to the one Homer was seen carrying in his hand. These similarities between the two covers have prompted several people to speculate that 'The Simpsons' foretold the singer’s concert as Travis published the cover just one day before the Astroworld concert.
That is not everything, there’s another piece of 'The Simpsons'-inspired digital art showing Lisa and Homer stepping into a monstrous head, which looks very similar to rapper Travis Scott’s 'Astroworld' album cover. The art was circulating on Twitter all day long. The Sun reported, “The Simpsons knew”.
How people reacted to Simpsons rediction?
The latest fan theories on the Simpsons and Travis’ Astroworld concert became viral on various social media sites and people were started reacting to it and expressing their personal views.
I should also mention that the Travis Scott's album art was likely a reference to the Bat Boy article like what The Simpsons were doing in "Judge me Tender".— Good Ol' Granite (formerly Garviel 2.0) (@RealGarviel2) November 10, 2021

Crazy how The Simpsons predicted a Travis Scott concert with a stampede. They really do everything first.— jake (@JSchinas) November 7, 2021
Another added, “Crazy how The Simpsons predicted a Travis Scott concert with a stampede. They really do everything first.”
While many were seen reacting against the conspiracy theory. One person commented, “What don’t you understand about THIS was not on the Simpsons and a random person drew it when astroworld started in 2018. The same Travis Scott head has been part of the festival since 2018. This isn’t a conspiracy. Stop it”
