MelodyVR has teamed up with Liam Payne to launch its first live Virtual Reality Broadcast from a secret London location.
The interactive music performance, featuring MelodyVR’s unique ‘jump spot’ technology, will allow fans to control their own experience at the event, by choosing their own location within the venue, replicating the feeling of being there with a 360-degree view.
To experience the show at home, fans will need an Oculus Go or Samsung GearVR headset with the MelodyVR app installed and an internet connection. They can then launch the Melody VR app at 8pm on Wednesday, December 19 and select Liam Payne from the home screen.
Anthony Matchett, CEO of MelodyVR, said “This is a hugely exciting moment for MelodyVR. We truly believe that virtual reality has the power to connect artists with fans like never before. It has been a pleasure working with Liam and we’re thrilled to be bringing his headline performance in London, exclusively to fans around the world via our platform in Virtual Reality. It’s a pleasure to invite fans both in-London and across the globe to experience this amazing event - as well as a whole lot more in 2019."
A small number of tickets to attend the show in person will be available via a ballot on the MelodyVR website.
Payne will release groundbreaking immersive content via the platform throughout 2019 and beyond.
“I can’t wait for this show," he said. "For those who are going to be there on the night, it’s going to be amazing... but the fact there will be people from right across the globe watching the live stream via MelodyVR makes it extra special.”
MelodyVR, which is currently available in the USA, the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium, has worked with hundreds of artists including Post Malone, The Chainsmokers, Niall Horan and Bebe Rexha to deliver music fans on-demand virtual reality experiences via the MelodyVR app.
