ABC-owned KTRK Houston will stream a town hall Thursday (Nov. 11) on the chaos at Travis Scott‘s Astroworld music festival.

The 8-9 p.m. event will feature anchor Tom Abrahams and reporters Mycah Hatfield and Roxie Bustamante along with a panel including concert attendees, Houston rapper BunB, Rep. Al Green (D-Tex.), a crowd science expert and legal analyst.

Viewers can submit questions via ABC13.com or the station‘s news app for smartphones. The town hall will stream on the site and app, as well as ABC13 connected TV apps on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV and Google TV.

The concert last Friday (Nov. 5) at NRG Park in Houston left eight dead and some 300 injured.

The tragedy has generated more than 50 lawsuits from over 100 plaintiffs, according to reports.
