Catch Travis Scott Live in Concert This Weekend...in Fortnite, That Is
Move over Marshmello, it's Travis Scott's turn.
Virtual concerts during the pandemic have definitely become a thing, but Travis Scott has decided to take a different approach from the usual cosy conference call performance - he's going on tour in Fortnite instead.
Yes, he won't be the first artiste to do so, but the performance will be especially welcome during these times where most people are seeking distractions to relieve them of the growing ennui from being stuck at home.
The 'Astronomical' tour will have 5 other-worldly shows in total, and will debut a new track from Travis Scott. The schedule is as follows:
Friday, April 24, 2020 @ 7:00:00 AM GMT+8
Friday, April 24, 2020 @ 10:00:00 PM GMT+8
Saturday, April 25, 2020 @ 12:00:00 PM GMT+8
Saturday, April 25, 2020 @ 11:00:00 PM GMT+8
Sunday, April 26, 2020 @ 6:00:00 AM GMT+8
And of course, you can pick up 'tour merch' in the shape of in-game cosmetics - attendees will receive a free Astroworld-themed glider and two loading screens, while a selection of Travis Scott-themed outfits, emotes, and goodies will be available for purchase through the shop or through completing Astronomical Challenges.
Love or hate Fortnite, there's no denying the amount of clout the game holds within the world pop culture.
