Travis Scott will be the next artist to host a concert inside Fortnite. The Grammy-nominated hip-hop superstar will hold an in-game tour from April 23-25.

Scott’s Fortnite tour is called Astronomical, which fits neatly into the space theme he’s been using for the last couple of years. His last studio album, which came out in 2018, is called Astroworld, and will likely be featured heavily in the Fortnite concert. Astroworld is one of the most popular hip-hop albums of the last several years, ending both 2018 and 2019 in the top 10 of the Billboard 200. “Sicko Mode,” the album’s most popular track, ended up at 16 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for the previous decade.

While Astroworld will probably make up most of the concert, it will also include the world premiere of a brand new track. The in-game area of the concert hasn’t been unveiled yet, but according to Fortnite developer Epic Games, it will be in an area of the map that’s been specially designed by a team at Cactus Jack, the record label that Scott founded. Along with the concert itself, Scott will be introduced as a new Icon outfit in-game and get his own Emote.

This will be Fortnite’s second massive concert after Marshmello hosted an in-game event early last year. In the meantime, Fortnite also hosted a clip premiere for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

To make sure as many people can see the concert as possible, Epic is spreading the event out over several days. For each concert, doors will open 30 minutes before the show, so players can get in and get comfortable before the main event begins.

Here’s a schedule of all of Travis Scott’s Fortnite concerts:

  • 4/23 — 7 p.m. EDT
  • 4/24 — 10 a.m. EDT
  • 4/25 — 12 a.m. EDT
  • 4/25 — 11 a.m. EDT
  • 4/25 — 6 p.m. EDT
