This announcement follows a recent development in Scott’s career. Last month, a grand jury decided not to press charges against the rapper regarding the tragic 2021 Astroworld Festival. The festival, which saw a surge in the crowd during Scott’s performance, resulted in the deaths of 10 people and left hundreds injured. As a response to the ongoing lawsuits filed against Live Nation, the concert’s producer, Scott himself, and other organizers, the artist remains firm in denying any allegations of negligence or wrongdoing.

The Giza Pyramids are among the world’s most iconic landmarks. Built as a tomb for the pharaohs, it stands as a testament to the ancient Egyptians’ architectural prowess and cultural significance. The pyramid’s precise construction and alignment with celestial bodies continue to intrigue researchers and visitors alike, making it a popular tourist destination. 

According to the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, Egypt welcomed over seven million tourists in the first half of 2023, a record high for the country.
