MelodyVR adds five gigs to VR collection

MelodyVR has confirmed The Streets as one of the five new concerts it has released into its virtual reality catalogue.

The other four include Thomas Rhett, Rudimental, Calum Scott and The Horrors.

The virtual reality music content creator, owned by EVR Holdings, has partnerships across the music industry, including major and independent labels, publishers and venues and has teamed up with a huge array of international artists to build the world’s largest library of immersive and interactive virtual reality music experiences.

MelodyVR is a music platform that allows users to experience music performances, from concerts to studio sessions, in virtual reality.

The Streets’ lead man Mike Skinner (pictured) said of their O2 Brixton Academy show, according to Music Week: “We filmed one of our recent gigs at Brixton in VR and it’s an absolute mazza. You can even follow me jumping into the crowd and see the panic on my tour manager’s face. This is for your kids! In 20 years time there’ll be no excuses!”

Country singer Thomas Rhett has also shared his performance at the Honda Centre in Anaheim, CA.

He said: “I’m really excited to be able to share this with everyone who couldn’t make it to a stop on the Life Changes Tour, and also offer those who could a chance to relive it with me … from right where I was standing! It’s amazing being able to experience the show from this perspective and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

The MelodyVR app is available on Oculus Go and GearVR devices.
