Globally-renowned free-for-all battle royale video game Fortnite has brought another phenomenon in the online gaming industry. From its brazen dance emotes, in-game currency, bright colours and skins, it now has a live concert series that features the world’s hottest and famous artists in front of the screens of more than 350 million Fortnite players.

Since the Fortnite concert’s release in 2019, big names like Marshmello and Travis Scott have taken the virtual stage. Now, a record-breaking and award-winner superstar performed in the Rift Tour concert series, and that is none other than Ariana Grande. Here are a few important details about the visually appealing Grande event.

About the Rift tour: Schedules and locations

The Grande Rift tour is a five-show concert series that ran from August 6 to August 8. Below are the detailed schedules for the different regions around the world. After a promising virtual concert, play or bet on Fortnite to keep the magic of the experience alive.

Video game company Epic Games tip their millions of players to be in a ‘position’ to be ready an hour before the actual show starts so that you can join and listen to the Rift Tour playlist. ‘The Rift Tour will begin with experiences that pair popular tracks with moments based on elements from the game’, they said.

The much-awaited virtual concert of the iconic pop star has been in the world for years. If you’re a fan of Ariana Grande and Fortnite, the event was a fitting celebration of both. As the event’s post-celebration of some sort, you can still play in-game quests in the game.

Get your Ariana Grande Fortnite skin

As expected, a Fortnite skin based on Grande hit the game’s item shop on August 4 at 8 PM ET. Players were able to show up to the virtual concert dressed as the superstar, which includes the following:

● Ariana Grande Outfit w/ Rift Goddess Ariana Variant
● Piggy Smallz Back Bling (Grande’s real-life pet pig)
● LIl’ Floaticorn Emote
● Sweetener Sailshards Glider
● 7 Rings Smasher Pickaxe w/ Gem Striker Variant

The Grande skin and Piggy Smallz backpack cost around 2,000 V-bucks, whereas the entire package was worth 2,800 V-bucks.

Attendees of the concert have also received a special umbrella glider made out of the skin of a dead Cuddle Commander. Then, players who subscribe to the monthly Fortnite Crew subscription will also get additional exclusive bonuses, such as a rainbow variant of the umbrella, another spray and a loading screen.

The major success of Fortnite’s live events

Fortnite’s concert series is part of its massive live events. They are connected to the game’s storyline and take place either in the middle or near the end of the season. Following the major success of Marshmello, Travis Scott, and now, with Ariana Grande, aren’t you psyched about the artist who will join the metaverse? The concert is considered a success so it’s very likely for Epic to launch another immersive virtual event soon. That’s a great play or bet discussion with your friends while playing the game.
