Rapper Travis Scott performed his first of five-concert tour 'Astronomical' within Epic Game title Fortnite.
If there is one thing that we can say hands down about Epic Games, it is that they never disappoint when it comes to mind-blowing excitement launch after launch.
Epic Games teamed up with Travis Scott (aka Cactus Jack) to have a five-show concert series inside of Epic's 'Fortnite.' On Thursday, April 23rd, Scott's first concert series went live in a significant way. The virtual concert pulled more than 12.2 million concert views for the release pulling in viewership numbers to rival Monday Football according to reports from a post from Fortnites' official Twitter account. Concert one of Travis Scott's 'Astronomical' is now Fortnites' most significant event to date.
Going from these reports, Scott killed electronica Dj Marshmello's numbers from his 2019 Fornite concert pulling in 10.7 million audience members.
Epic set up one hell of a stage by turning Fornites' entire island into one enormous stage. The virtual stage featured a massive Travis Scott roaming the island as attendees were able to dance, headbang, rock out with a flamed microphone stand and jump for the 15-minute set.
As the songs changed during the concert, so did the 'Astronomical' stage. Check out some of the elements below:
