Technology is definitely taking us places and this news is a testimony to that fact. Something mesmerizing was achieved on February 2, when Fortnite hosted American DJ and producer Marshmello for a virtual concert.
The players rested their weapons for a 10-minute set by the electronic musician, real name Christopher Comstock.
Around 10 million players were in attendance, which made the show more crowded than the most-popular real-world concerts.
After the performance, Marshmello tweeted:
We made history today! The first ever live virtual concert inside of @fortnite with millions of people in attendance. So insane, thank you epic games and everyone who made this possible! pic.twitter.com/xdaNGnyMr9

He followed it up with another tweet:
What makes me happiest about today is that so many people got to experience their first concert ever. All the videos I keep seeing of people laughing and smiling throughout the set are amazing. Man I’m still so pumped

Well, for those who missed it, the set has since been made available on Apple Music. You can also watch the concert on artist’s YouTube channel. Just like the real concert, merchandise was on sale with Marshmello costumes available for players to purchase.
So, what do you think about this concert?
