English punk rockers Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have announced an interactive virtual concert to be held at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on November 13th at 12PM PST/3PM EST.
“The unique, immersive experience, dubbed “Brixton By Request,” gives fans a rare experience to pick the band’s setlist and to chat with the band via interactive screens at the legendary London venue,” says a press release. “The show also features the live debut of tracks from the band’s recently released Blossom Deluxe.”
Using the MelodyVR app on smartphones and VR headsets, fans across the globe will be able to join the action via the comfort of their homes. “Groundbreaking live stream technology will transport fans onto the state-of-the-art stage for the one-off performance, allowing them to choose from multiple camera angles to make the show their own,” notes the presser.
Frank Carter states, “There are few places like O2 Academy Brixton, a venue where you feel the history every time you walk out onto the stage. Our sold out Brixton show a few years back was wild and we had to create a live album from it. This time around we’re gonna give even more energy to you at home – and can’t wait to get energy back – with our exclusive interactive live show on MelodyVR. See you there.”
