Coldplay To Stream Chicago Concert Via VR
Posted: August 9, 2017
CHICAGO (CelebrityAccess) -- Live Nation is partnering with Samsung Electronics America to bring the Coldplay's “A Head Full of Dreams Tour” live concert experience to virtual reality.

On August 17th, fans in more than 50 countries will be able to tune in to a live virtual reality broadcast of Coldplay's live performance at Chicago's Soldier Field.

To tune-in, consumers will need a Gear VR headset with a compatible Samsung smartphone, and navigate to the Samsung VR service. A concert replay will also be available on Samsung VR for a limited time, the two companies said.

“Live Nation is a trailblazer when it comes to producing live virtual reality concerts, and we’ve been excited to bring Coldplay into the mix since announcing our collaboration with Samsung and Gear VR in late May,” said Kevin Chernett, Executive Vice President, Global Partnerships and Content Distribution, Live Nation. “We not only give fans the best in-seat experience, but we’re also committed to working with the best technologies to provide every music fan an extraordinary concert experience, regardless of where they are.”
