The Kid LAROI To Host a Fortnite Concert Later This Month

Fortnite is known for bringing innovation and creativity to the gaming industry, and while many people dislike this aspect of the game, it is certainly intriguing. It combines famous celebrities and movies and seamlessly integrates them into the game.

Live concerts are coming back to Fortnite in late January, and rapper The Kid LAROI will be hosting one, according to multiple sources. We haven’t seen a live Fortnite performance in a long time. Live concerts from artists like Ariana Grande and Travis Scott in 2020 and 2021 helped turn Fortnite into a “metaverse” where people could gather during pandemics, years before the term was widely used.

There have been no official announcements regarding the concert’s date, but rumors have it happening on either the 24th or 25th of January, and the music from the concert should be available for about a month after it concludes. After that, the only things you have to look back on are the in-game cosmetics that you were ushered to buy and your own memories.

There’s a good chance that many of the readers won’t be familiar with the name Kid LAROI. So, in 2020, the Australian singer, then only 19 years old, shot to fame thanks to his work with megastars like Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and Juice Wrld. As of this writing, he is the 88th most popular artist on Spotify, with 34 million monthly listeners, and his song “Stay” has reached the top ten on Billboard’s Hot 100

Assuming that the Kid LAROI concert does indeed happen, it will be well before the release of Chapter 4, Season 2 of Fortnite, which is not expected until sometime in the middle of March. More and more musicians are beginning to recognize the promotional potential of video games, thanks in large part to the success of blockbuster titles like Fortnite, so we can anticipate a continued uptick in attendance at events like these.

Comment below and let us know if you think Fortnite should keep incorporating pop culture into video games or if you think events like this are a step too far.
