Foo Fighters are counter programming the Super Bowl halftime show! Dave Grohl and the boys have something extra special for those who are just not satisfied with the often lame Super Bowl halftime show. A special concert for the segment of the NFL’s fanbase who have traditionally been underserved as well as underappreciated, the hard rock, heavy metal football fan.
A free virtual reality concert will take place at the same time as the Super Bowl halftime show, giving this segment of the fanbase an alternative to the overdone line up of Mary J Blige, rappers Snoop Dogg, and Dr Dre, Kendrick Lamar and Eminem. This will add another alternative to the already alternative Super Bowl halftime programming such as the incredibly popular Puppy Bowl.
This unique event will take place on Sunday, February 13th on Meta’s virtual reality app, Horizon Venues.
Speaking of their groundbreaking event, Grohl said this:
“Foo Fighters love a challenge — from playing the biggest stages in the world to the tiniest clubs to making movies and miniseries. We’ve pretty much done it all. But we’ve never collaborated with Mark Romanek on a conceptual set of songs (including one being played live for the first time ever) for a worldwide audience, where everyone has the best seats in the house thanks to the most badass VR tech… until now. Join us when we cross that one off the FF bucket list!”
In addition to Horizon Venues, fans can see the performance on the band’s own Facebook and Instagram pages, thereby making the event available to all, not just those with access to VR.
