During his Runaway Tour this fall, American rapper Post Malone is making a stop at PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC where his concert will be broadcast in VR for Oculus mobile headsets.
Users with Oculus Quest, Go, or Samsung Gear VR will be able to head into Oculus Venues and watch the concert for free on October 17th at 8 PM ET (local time here).
It’s slated to last three and a half-hours long, so make sure you’re fully charged up and ready to go.
You can sign up on Oculus’ website for a reminder.
Oculus Venues is a social viewing platform that lets users watch scheduled and live events in virtual stadium setting, including sports, stand-up comedy, and concerts. There’s still no word on when/if Rift is supposed to get support for Venues, so it’s only open to Oculus mobile headsets at this time.
The concert is being captured by LA-based startup Supersphere, which has previously livestreamed VR concerts for a number of artists, including Billie Eilish, Tenacious D, H.E.R., and Empire of the Sun.
