In an immersive and spectacular spectacle, Fortnite players witnessed one of Epic Games’ biggest events yet. On Thursday evening, multi-platinum rapper Travis Scott held his “Astronomical” concert for Fortnite players everywhere, premiering his brand new track “The Scotts.” Fans can catch the “other-worldly” experience from April 23 – 25.
The 10-minute concert was an exciting light show, featuring a giant holographic Travis Scott. The show began at 7:05 p.m. EST on April 23 with “SICKO MODE” as the introduction song. Players all over the area gathered to view the light show as a giant speaker blew up and blasted everyone far from the stage. Right after, Travis appeared to perform. Players were able to walk around while viewing the neon visual effects on the sky.
Players were then able to jump and float around as if on a trampoline. As the sky turned from light blue to pink, Travis grabbed two stars from the sky and smacked them together, instantly blasting everyone into a different scene. Then the next song, “Stargazing,” began.
The rest of the concert allowed the player to immerse themselves as an intergalactic traveler, a diver, and more. From neon skeletal suits to giant neon jellyfish, this concert had players teleporting from one scene to another.
Everyone will be able to get a chance to watch the vibrant show between now and April 25. The remaining showtimes go as follows:
- Saturday, April 25: 12 a.m. EDT
- Saturday, April 25: 11 a.m. EDT
- Saturday, April 25: 6 p.m. EDT
Here is the full tracklist of the songs played during the event:
- “SICKO MODE” Feat. Drake
- “Highest in the Room”
- “The Scotts” feat. Kid Cudi
Plenty of popular streamers such as Imane “Pokimane” Anys, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Ali “Myth” Kabbani, and more watched the concert. Pokimane said the concert is “the best in-game event yet.” Myth, on the other hand, gave everyone a clip of their excitement during the show.
