On Monday, April 17th at 7 PM CT, NextVR and Live Nation will broadcast live in virtual reality Killswitch Engage’s concert at the House of Blues in Houston Texas. The band is currently on their co-headlining tour with Anthrax, and next week fans will get front row and on-stage access as they are transported to an immersive experience featuring the group performing for the first time in virtual reality.
The live VR broadcast will be available for free globally (except in China) through the NextVR app. Additionally, you will need a Google Daydream or Samsung Gear VR headset, along with a compatible smartphone in order to stream the live concert on the required app which is available to download from either the Oculus store for GearVR or the Google Play store for Daydream.
Nowadays it seems that anything is possible, if our latest technology can bring back the dead via holograms, then a live VR stream must be a walk in the park. You can find out additional details on the live VR stream event here and check here for information on the app itself.
This concert is part of Live Nation’s multi-year concert series with NextVR. The two teamed up before and broadcast Thievery Corporation, Galactic, Robert Randolph & The Family Band concerts so far, and have much more planned for future shows.
