Rapper Travis Scott just made an appearance for the first of five shows he’ll be starring in for Fortnite, and if you’re a fan of either of those things—like the millions of people who tuned in to watch—it was one hell of an event.

While only running for around ten minutes, and focused on the debut of a new single, the whole thing could have just been some players standing around watching a Travis Scott model on a stage rapping.

Instead, everyone watching got giants, space travel, underwater sections and a lot of lasers.

In terms of viewership, this is a lot of people:


There’ll be four more concerts held in the game over the next few days.

This of course isn’t the first time an artist has played a show inside Fortnite; Marshmello played one last year too that was, by our own intrepid Fortnite reporter’s account, pretty great.
