Vegas strip club shuts down audition after more than 1,000 women signed up and organizers feared crowd would ‘trample’ each other in an event similar to Astroworld
- More than 1,000 women signed up to audition for Vegas strip club Club Ice
- The event was held at Blume Lounge in nearby Henderson on Wednesday
- The Fire Marshal reportedly shut the event down after it proved too popular
- ‘Y’all seen that shit happen with Travis Scott the other night, y’all better pack up,’ a host told audience members as they pushed up against the stage
Dancer auditions for a soon-to-open Las Vegas strip club were cut short by the fire marshal after too many people showed up to watch the tryouts, with one host reminding a crowd pushed against the stage of this month’s Astroworld stampede.
Tryouts for Club Ice were held last Wednesday at Blume Lounge in Henderson, Nevada – just outside of Vegas.
The event proved to be a little too popular, with TMZ reporting that 1,000 women signed up and the Fire Marshal had to shut it down to avoid any potential injuries.
At one point, a host is heard saying: ‘This motherf***** too packed, y’all gotta back up. Y’all seen that s*** happen with Travis Scott the other night, y’all better pack up,’ referring to the deadly stampede at the Houston festival that killed 10 people.

‘Y’all not gonna be suing me, talking about ‘I let y’all do this s***,’ a man who appeared to be a host said. ‘Y’all seen that s*** happen with Travis Scott the other night, y’all better pack up’
The strip club welcomed people to the lounge to witness the tryouts.
‘ABSOLUTELY FREE TO WALK IN THE DOOR TO APPLY . WE ARE WELCOMING THE GENERAL PUBLIC AS WELL TO COME & WATCH THE AUDITIONS OF THE DANCERS,’ the club said on Instagram.
Videos from the event show nearly naked women dancing in a fully lit room as people throw money in the air.
A man who appears to be hyping up the crowd shouts into a microphone: ‘We in motherf****** Las Vegas, Nevada. We in Detroit. We in motherf****** Oakland.’
‘Uh oh, there goes the money y’all.’
In another video, a man warns the audience to back up as they crowd the stage.
He referenced the Astroworld Festival, where 10 people died, including eight during the show, on November 5.

There, the crowd rushed the stage as Travis Scott was gearing up to perform his headlining set.
Scott is known for inciting audiences at his shows to act rambunctiously, though video showed him stopping his performance to ask if everyone was safe.
On November 14, a 9-year-old boy who was being held on his father’s shoulders became the tenth person to die from injuries sustained at the show.
The festival and Scott, who founded it, are the subject of numerous lawsuits, including one filed by Texas attorney Thomas J. Henry on Thursday on behalf of 280 victims

‘Y’all not gonna be suing me, talking about ‘I let y’all do this s***,’ the man at the Club Ice tryouts said.
The Nevada Fire Marshal did not immediately respond to requests for comment about the shutdown from DailyMail.com.
Some women still managed to earn a spot on the club’s cast, TMZ reports.
