Since 2019, when Fortnite had its impact around the world, rumors suggested that Ariana Grande would be one of the special guests to appear during a commemorative event, but this never happened. After two years of waiting, the pop star announces good news for her fans and that she will have a special participation in Fortnite, one of the most acclaimed video games and with active users in recent times.
Here’s how to watch the virtual concert of Ariana Grande in Fortnite
As a demonstration of the fact that music and video games are getting along more and more, Epic Games confirms the rumors and the musical journey of Ariana Grande in Fortnite. The appointment for the virtual concert is from 6 to 8 August with the Rift Tour. There will be five shows in three days, to make sure fans around the world can see it.
“We recommend fans arrive in Fortnite 60 minutes before showtime, and the Rift Tour Playlist should be live 30 minutes before each show. Before Ariana’s arrival, the Rift Tour kicks off with Fortnite-themed experiences — pairing popular tracks with moments based on elements from the game,” the press release reads.
In fact, what we do know is that Ariana Grande will be the show’s headliner.
“Working with Epic and the Fortnite team to bring my music to life inside the game has been so fun and such an honour. I can’t wait to join my fans and see all of your reactions to such an unforgettable, magical journey to new realities,” commented Ariana Grande in a statement to Billboard.
On the occasion of the shows and the arrival of Ariana Grande, new Icon Series will also be introduced. There will also be new quests, which will allow you to unlock new items. These include the Rainbow Cloudcruiser Umbrella, the Skye up High Loading Screen, and a Rift Tour-themed Banner.
The Ariana Grande skin will also be available before the concert, so you can wear it just for the big event. In a teaser video, Epic Games showed the new skin dedicated to the pop star and a backpack based on the image of Piggy Smallz, Ariana’s pig.
