When asked about why Travis Scott would do something as unique and unusual as a video game concert he said,

If you have never heard of Travis Scott, you should know he is a somewhat notorious performer and rapper. Not for his lyrical content in his songs, but for his live shows where people have literally been injured during one of his crazier performances. In one case, the rapper was arrested by police for inciting a riot in Arkansaw, USA where fans simply got out of control. It's no wonder he went for a much safer venue inside Fortnite’s virtual world to try some next-level epic dance moves!
