Travis Scott Held A Virtual Concert On Fortnite And Broke Records

Is this the new normal? At least in the immediate future, it is.

Over 12 million people turned on Fortnite, a popular video game, to check out some new music from Travis Scott. No, it wasn't your average music release, but a virtual concert with Travis Scott hopping online on the video game platform played by millions around the world.

"From April 23-25, blast off into a one of a kind musical journey featuring Travis Scott and the world premiere of a brand new track. Astronomical is an other-worldly experience inspired by Cactus Jack's creations, built from the ground up in Fortnite," an announcement on the Fortnite site reads. "To make sure everyone has a chance to experience Astronomical, we're setting up multiple tour dates with showtimes for players around the globe. Jump in to whichever time fits your schedule best, or catch an encore with your friends if they missed it."

If you missed it, there's still time to check out the encore presentations thru this weekend!
