Fortnite Travis Scott Astronomical show draws over 12.3M players, encore planned

Astronomical was a show so good, Fortnite and Travis Scott are doing it again all this weekend after 12.3 million players participated in the debut.


Fortnite and Travis Scott’s in-game Astronomical show was quite the experience on Thursday. Over 12 million players around the world tuned in for a set full of explosive effects and visuals alongside a virtual performance from Scott. It was great to say the least - so good that Fortnite and Travis Scott are giving players a chance to see it again with a slate of encore performances this weekend.

It was on Thursday, April 24, 2020, shortly after the Fortnite Travis Scott Astronomical show ended that Fortnite reported the incredible number of viewers for the event. Fortnite claimed on Twitter and in a blog post that over 12.3 million players participated in the concert event. They would go on to announce a series of encore performances for which those who missed (or want to see again) will have another chance to check out the Astronomical show this weekend from April 24 to April 25. We got to see it ourselves on the Shacknews Twitch Channel and you can catch a glimpse of the show in the video just below.
