Oculus has announced the launch of a new virtual reality concert experience called Oculus Venues, kicking off with a performance by Vance Joy at 7:30 p.m. PST on Wednesday (May 30) broadcast live from Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
Oculus Venues is now available for Oculus Go and Gear VR, while the company touts it in a press release as "a way to get closer to your interests and connect with other fans, with all the sounds, lights and energy of really being there." Not only will fans be able to watch concerts in real time from the comfort of their living rooms, but Venues will also include sports games, comedy shows, movies and more.
Users will be able to toggle between a social sharing mode and a solo-viewing mode, meaning that in addition to attending Venues events with friends and family, there is also an opportunity to meet new people -- should one so desire. Social sharing mode allows one to easily connect with others based on common interests or mutual friends on Facebook.
