Liam Payne to perform virtual reality concert
Write it down on your agenda guys! On December 19, you will be able to watch Liam Payne’s London concert via virtual reality headsets.
The singer has teamed up with London-based startup MelodyVR to headline the company’s first-ever “live in VR” event. A selected number of fans who enter a ballot will be able to attend the gig in a secret London location, while the rest of them can watch it live using an Oculus Go or Samsung GearVR headset with the MelodyVR app.
On Wednesday (Dec. 12), Liam urged fans to enter the ballot for a chance to win free tickets to see him onstage in person, writing “The ballot closes tomorrow at 12pm UK time for my @melodyvirtual LIVE performance, happening in a secret London location… Good luck.”
“I can’t wait for this show,” said the One Direction star in a statement, adding “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.”
