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.
