After much speculation on what next in-game event from Fortnite would have included, Epic Games confirmed the concert Ariana Grande scheduled for the day after tomorrow, including one leak show in advance the skin theme. The concert will be part of a great “Rift Tour” with which players will have more opportunities to participate.
We have known for a long time that the singer, sooner or later, would make her appearance in the battle royale of Epic thanks to the cornucopia of secrets that emerged from the papers published during the lawsuit against Apple. Among the publisher’s plans it would seem even Naruto, among the thousand IPs planned for the collaboration.
We now have a leak showing Ariana Grande’s skin in action, but we recommend players to Fortnite who want to wait to see it in-game not to continue reading. If you are here for this reason, you can see what it looks like in the HYPEX tweet below, although the leaker only shows it in thelocker.
The skin in question shows the singer in a concert outfit and with a silver, pink and, above all, incredibly long hair. Most of these skins are part of a set including decorative backs, collection tools and more, and in part Epic Games has already confirmed some of these elements as you can see from the video above.

We don’t have any confirmation of yet how exactly the players will be able to get the skin in question or if there will be different styles (plausible, given the completely white eyes that the singer sports in the illustration of the Rift Tour). But the event is just around the corner, so we believe it’s just a matter of time.
The Rift Tour starts on August 6, but after the opening concert we will have other dates to attend. Those attending the concert will receive an umbrella inspired by the skin of the “Leader Squadra delle Coccole”. With all due respect to José Mourinho, who will probably have to beg his players not to get lost too long with the battle royale.
