In a post on the Epic Games website, Fortnite has just announced that Ariana Grande will headline the Fortnite Rift Tour!
Ariana Grande will be holding a concert event at various times between August 6th and August 8th. The exact times (in PT) are:
- August 6th 3pm
- August 7th 11am
- August 7th 9pm
- August 8th 7am
- August 8th 3pm
Epic Games announced the Rift Tour a couple days ago. At the time, it was advertised as a moment when “Fortnite and a record-breaking superstar collide.” From July 29th to August 8th, players could unlock several in-game rewards in preparation for the (then not-named) Ariana’s concerts. One of these rewards includes an Ariana Grande costume.
This is also not the first time a celebrity has made their way into Fortnite. Recently, LeBron James appeared as a skin in the game as part of Fortnite’s Icon Series. Previously, artist Marshmello held an in-game concert and has since used the game as a medium to make some of his music videos.
