A documentary on the Astroworld concert that ended with 10 people dead will be released in some theaters this month.

10 concertgoers died and more than 300 were injured at the Astroworld concert in Houston in November of 2021.

The documentary, titled “Concert Crush”, looks at what unfolded at Travis Scott’s concert.

Director Charlie Minn said he made the documentary so people wouldn’t forget about the tragedy and to shine light on the families who are still waiting for justice to be served.

The documentary includes interview with security experts, survivors, attorneys and investigators.

Concert Crush will open in select theaters across Texas starting April 11.

In December of 2021, a congressional committee launched an investigation into Live Nation, the promoter of the concert.

The House Oversight and Reform Committee requested information about the company’s role in the festival, as well as details about security, crowd control and casualty incident planning.

Nearly 400 lawsuits have been filed over injuries and deaths at the concert, including many against Live Nation and Scott.
