This is far from the first large-scale event in Fortnite. Sometimes Epic Games brings music artists to the virtual gaming scene. Interestingly, according to sources Forbes, rapper Travis Scott made nearly $ 20 million, including selling digital items. In comparison, the actual Astroworld tour grossed a maximum of $ 1.7 million overnight, and the tour lasted 9 months and brought Scott $ 53.5 million.
Fortnite is available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
