LOS ANGELES — AmazeVR (AmazeVR.com) is partnering with Megan Thee Stallion to present Enter Thee Hottieverse, a virtual reality concert tour that will take place in 10 cities across the United States between April and July of this year. Fans who purchase tickets at AmazeVR.com will be able to go to their local movie theater, put on the provided ‘Hottie Mounted Displays’ (VR headsets) and hang out in the VR Hottieverse lobby before watching Megan. The VR concert performance will feature a multi-song set that moves through a series of environments as well custom wardrobes designed just for the show.
“Virtual reality has always been an interest of mine and I’m glad that we’ll be able to make history with this experience,” says the artist. “My hotties (fans) will get to watch me perform in a completely different and unique way and I appreciate the AmazeVR team for helping me to bring this VR vision to life. I can’t wait to see the Hotties show up to the tour.”
“We are thrilled to work with Megan to launch AmazeVR’s very first VR concert tour,” adds Ernest Lee, Amaze VR co-CEO. “She’s an artist who has incredible stage presence and can create iconic moments that will make the most of the VR technology we’re developing. If anyone could push the notion of how captivating a VR concert can be, it’s Megan.”
AmazeVR has spent years reimagining music experiences for the VR environment. Their approach incorporates high-definition, hyper-real 3D live-action capture of artists like Megan, with sophisticated computer-generated worlds that come to life in VR.
“Not everyone owns a headset, and not everyone can make it to their favorite artist’s live show,” says Lee. “A VR concert by AmazeVR opens up the possibilities for fans to encounter artists in a completely new way, while knocking down all the barriers to entry that have made it hard to access the amazing experiences VR can provide.”
AmazeVR will preview the tour next month at SXSW as an official selection.
