October 2021 saw the kickoff of the Fortnite Soundwave Series — a series of in-game musical shows featuring artists from all over the world. After Egyptian superstar Mohamed Hamaki started off the soundwave, Australian singer-songwriter Tones And I kept it going with her own show airing back-to-back for 72 hours, starting Jan. 21, 2022, at 6 PM ET!
Each show in the Soundwave Series takes place in its own interactive experience, and Tones And I’s show is no exception. Over the coming months, Brazilian rapper Emicida, Japanese pop artist and music producer Gen Hoshino, and record-breaking French-Malian singer Aya Nakamura will have their own shows to experience in Fortnite. Keep an eye out for details as each artist carries on the soundwave!
HOW TO WATCH THE TONES AND I SHOW
Tones And I will be performing songs from her debut studio album Welcome to the Madhouse. To jump in, players can enter the SOUNDWAVE SERIES: TONES AND I tile (or input the Island code 4161-9206-0181) starting Friday, January 21, at 6 PM ET. This interactive experience made by community creators Team Alliance and TheBoyDilly is an adventure through the madhouse — a tour inspired by the songs of the album.
The show will repeat non-stop for 72 hours (until Monday, January 24 at 6 PM ET), so don’t worry if you can’t jump in right away. Enjoy the show and get the Soundwave Series – Tones And I Spray as a memento! With a second playthrough, you can even get some XP too.
Players also have the option to just watch the show via Picture-in-Picture in Battle Royale playlists and across Creative. This option is available during certain times of the event and is accessible through the settings. (Note: interactive elements will not be playable through Picture-in-Picture.)
TONES AND I LOBBY TRACK AND EMOTE
From the Welcome to the Madhouse album, Tones And I’s “Cloudy Day” will have its own Lobby Track in the Fortnite Item Shop! And step outside the Madhouse with an Emote based on the record-breaking single “Dance Monkey” from her The Kids Are Coming EP. The Cloudy Day Lobby Track and Dance Monkey Emote were be available in the Item Shop starting Wednesday, January 19, at 7 PM ET, before the event.
The second show of the Soundwave Series is almost here.
