Travis Scott continues to rake in the big bucks during his Astroworld tour.

On Tuesday (March 19), TMZ reported the "Sicko Mode" rapper set a new record at The Forum in Los Angeles when his concert made a third stop at the venue last month. According to the site, Scott grossed $1.7 million in one night after selling more than 16,300 tickets for the February 8 show. Following his shows on December 19 and 20, the 27-year-old became one of the few artists to have repeat sellouts at the arena, joining the likes of Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, and the late Michael Jackson.

Scott's February performance was also the "highest-grossing, single-night engagement of the Astroworld tour," TMZ reports. The news comes after it was recently reported that the Houston native is on track to gross one of the highest earning hip hop tours in recent years.

According to Billboard, Scott's arena-sized tour grossed $34.3 million in its first three months with 485,659 tickets sold. With 10 more dates left to go, he is projected to reach over $50 million in ticket sales. If so, he would outdo Kendrick Lamar's The Damn Tour ($40.7 million) and JAY-Z's 4:44 Tour ($48.7 million). Although several dates were canceled, Kanye West's The Life of Pablo Tour is expected to keep its rank as highest earner with $52.8 million.

In related news, Scott continues to make his presence felt on the Billboard charts. On Monday (March 18), Complex reported "Sicko Mode" is one of only five songs to spend at least 32 weeks in the Hot 100 top 10. Currently, the track sits at No. 10 ahead of Blueface's breakout hit, "Thotiana."

Elsewhere on the charts, Scott's AstroWorld album has moved up two spots this week to No. 10 on the Billboard 200. The LP debuted at No. 1 in August 2018 after selling 537,000 album-equivalent units in its first week. With all of his success this year thus far, congrats are definitely in order!
