Rapper Lil Nas X — best known for the 2019 mega-hit “Old Town Road” — is partnering with Roblox to host a live concert experience, complete with videos and the debut performance of his new single.

The musician announced the upcoming concert on Twitter. Yesterday, Lil Nas X tweeted a teaser, featuring Back to the Future star Michael J. Fox, for his upcoming new single “Holiday.” The new holiday song will drop Friday, Nov. 13, with the concert taking place in Roblox the following day, Nov. 14 at 1:00 pm PDT. There will also be a pre show Q&A and scavenger hunt the day before at 4:00 pm PDT.

As the coronavirus pandemic puts concerts, festivals, and other large gatherings on hold, some musicians have turned to games and online platforms to host events. Travis Scott hosted a huge concert in Fortnite back in April, with over 27 million people attending. Selena Gomez, meanwhile, held a surprise concert on Animal Talking, a late-night talk show hosted in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
