This isn’t the first time one of Fortnite’s virtual concerts has reached double-figure concurrent player numbers; the record had previously been held by last year’s Marshmellow concert with 10.7 million.
If you didn’t manage to make the Astronomical show last night there’s still a chance to catch an encore performance. As we reported earlier this week, there are multiple show dates. Here’s the list of remaining gigs:
- Friday, April 24, 2020 AT 3:00:00 PM GMT+1

For those who do attend, they’ll earn themselves the Astroworld Cyclone Glider, as well as a couple of free themed loading screens.
