VR company AmazeVR and Megan Thee Stallion have teamed up on a virtual reality concert tour, Enter the Hottieverse.
The Enter Thee Hottieverse event will take place in 10 cities across the United States between April and July 2022.
Fans will be able to access “Enter Thee Hottieverse” at participating theaters with the provided VR headsets – or the “Hottie Mounted Displays” as they’re called in the press release announcing details of the partnership.
The VR concert performance will feature a multi-song set that moves through a range of environments, as well as “hot wardrobes designed specifically for the show,” according to AmazeVR.
AmazeVR was founded in 2015 and recently closed a $15 million funding round to support what it then called a “vision for VR concerts.”
The $15 million raised on Jan. 12 brought the Los Angeles and Seoul-based company to $30.8 million to date.
The startup announced in January that its VR concert tour with Megan Thee Stallion “springs from years of research and development” that resulted in proprietary 9K cameras and software that automates “complex” visual effects powered by the Unreal Engine and can run more than 100 headphones at once.
AmazeVR has also previously announced that it will launch a Series B round in early 2022 to “make its mobile theater disguised as an artist’s tour bus available to potential investors in Silicon Valley and beyond.”
“Virtual reality has always interested me and I’m excited that we can make history with this experience.”
Megan Thee Stallion
Megan Thee Stallion, said: “Virtual reality has always interested me and I’m glad we can make history with this experience.
“My hotties will be able to see me perform in a very different and unique way and I appreciate the AmazeVR team for helping me bring this VR vision to life.
“I can’t wait to see the hotties on tour.”
“If anyone can push the idea of how immersive a VR concert can be, it’s Megan.”
Ernest Lee, AmazeVR
Ernest Lee, Co-CEO of AmazeVR added, “We are thrilled to be working with Megan to launch AmazeVR’s first-ever VR concert tour.
“She’s an artist with incredible stage presence and can create iconic moments that make the most of the VR technology we’re developing.
“If anyone could say how immersive a VR concert can be, it’s Megan.
“Not everyone owns a headset and not everyone makes it to their favorite artist’s live show.
“An AmazeVR VR concert opens up the possibility for fans to encounter artists in entirely new ways, while tearing down any barriers to entry that have hindered access to the amazing experiences that VR can offer.”music business worldwide
