Update: We've added additional photos of the night that you can check out at the slideshow below or you can head straight to our flickr album. Photos by Eddy Rissling for The Come Up Show. Wednesday, May 7, at The Opera House in Toronto was a night a part of Canadian Music Week, with the main headliner being Houston rapper, Travi$ Scott. The fans were lined up before the doors opened at 8; there was music playing, and the line was patiently waiting. When the doors finally opened and everyone was getting settled inside, fans couldn’t help notice the house music that was playing. It was a mix of every genre but hip hop and definitely did not match the vibe of the night. Fans were left standing and conversing before the show got started around 9pm.

There wasn’t much of a line just before the doors opened at 8 but it was yet another cold night and since it was a sold out show, most people must have been keeping warm until the venue was open.
