Queen + Adam Lambert have announced the launch of their first-ever live concert VR experience, VR the Champions.
It will premier globally through VRTGO, Universal Music Group’s VR platform, and will be presented in full 360 degree 3-D. The VR experience coincides with Queen + Adam Lambert’s two Los Angeles dates this week at the Hollywood Bowl.
VR the Champions was shot in May 2016 in Barcelona and features performances of Queen’s iconic hits such as Radio Ga Ga, Will We Rock You and of course We Are the Champions.
Project Instigator Brian May says, “This is the fulfillment of a dream. Through this unique Virtual Reality creation, fans around the world will for the first time be able to experience the excitement and energy of a Queen show in their own homes. Many of you have seen VR, but not VR like THIS!”
VR THE CHAMPIONS will be available for $9.99/€10.99/£9.99 on VRTGO, a VR platform that is available for iPhone, Android and all major VR platforms and accessible through most web browsers.
The experience is compatible with the OWL VR kit designed by Brian May, and can also be enjoyed using any VR viewing system including Oculus, Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR and HTC Vive.
VR the Champions was created by Miracle Productions and Eagle Rock Films, is directed by Jannicke Mikkelsen and stars Brian May, Roger Taylor, Adam Lambert, and the band.
