Your Next Concert May Be in Virtual Reality
Posted on Jun 9th 2017
Citi, Live Nation, and NextVR unveiled that Imagine Dragons, Lady Antebellum, Third Eye Blind and Prince Royce will each broadcast one of their upcoming concerts, for the first time, in virtual reality. Through cutting-edge technology, fans will be transported into an unprecedented concert experience, providing up-close-and-personal access to some of the summer’s hottest shows.
In addition, fans will have rare access to behind-the-scenes footage, in virtual reality, via the “Backstage with Citi” series. From being a fly on the wall as the artists get amped-up for their performance to walking side by side with them as they take the stage, this will be a thrilling journey that fans couldn’t otherwise access.
Slash & Friends were among the first artists to be showcased in the “Backstage with Citi” virtual reality series. In addition to performing live, in VR, at the LA Zoo, fans were also invited to take a virtual journey with Slash as he explored the zoo, interacted with the reptiles and shared his love for animal conservation.
The one-of-a-kind live concert series will kick off on June 15th when multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning rock band Imagine Dragons perform an exclusive show at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles. The additional schedule of concerts to broadcast live in NextVR will be:
- June 15: Imagine Dragons, Belasco Theater, Los Angeles, CA
- June 21: Third Eye Blind, Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston, MA
- June 24: Lady Antebellum, Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, VA
- July 2: Prince Royce, Music Park in Dallas, TX
