Samsung Gear VR scores live entertainment venues for concerts and sporting events


Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Go headsets now support Oculus Venues – a new platform for live entertainment experiences, such as concerts, sporting events, stand-up comedy shows, and others. Thankfully, there's also a theater and other cozier venues for enjoying smaller-scale stuff.

What's more interesting, is that Oculus Venues offers a multi-user VR experience, meaning you can join -- or be joined by -- your family, friends, and even strangers to attend virtual events together in real time. First row seats for everyone and pretty much unlimited seating capacity! Of course, if you want to "go" to an event solo, you are absolutely free to do so.

Oculus Venues was first announced during Oculus Connect 4 last year, and made another appearance during the Facebook Developers Conference (F8) earlier this month. VRFocus reports that the VR program will be kicking off with a performance from Vance Joy, live from Red Rocks Amphitheatre at 7:30 pm PT (31st May, 3:30am GMT) in partnership with AEG Presents.

The majority of these live VR events will be brought to you thanks to a partnership between Oculus and specialised broadcaster NextVR.
