TULSA, Okla. (CelebrityAccess) Police shot pepper balls at concertgoers after a Travis Scott postponed a show at BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla., at the last minute because of production issues, causing several in the crowd to grow unruly, including breaking the glass of one of the facility’s doors Feb. 11.

A BOK Center news adisisory sent to news outlets at 6:13 p.m. said that the sold-out show was postponed to March 26 because of technical production issues.

“Tulsa so sorry I can’t perform at tonight’s sold-out show,” Scott posted on social media at 7:30 p.m. “We had last-minute production issues and I can’t give y’all an incomplete show. Rescheduled til March 26, all tix still valid. Everyone get home safe.”

A large number of people at the venue’s southeast entrance began banging on the glass doors, causing one to break, Police St. Brandon Smith told Tulsa World. Police deployed the pepper balls, causing the crowd to disperse. No one was struck and no injuries were reported, Smith said.

BOK Center officials said that all tickets for the performance will be honored March 26.

Scott’s Astroworld tour launched in November with production issues. It had a late start at Raleigh, N.C., and shows in Hartford, Cleveland and Milwaukee were postponed. The production includes massive video screens and an actual rollercoaster, itself a source of contention with Mötley Crüe  drummer Tommy Lee, who accused Scott of using a set piece that Lee pioneered and that looked similar to the roller coaster Mötley Crüe used during its “Final Tour.”
