Foo Fighters will Perform in a Live VR Concert Right After the Super Bowl

Catch the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame band live after LA Rams take Cincinnati Bengals head on February 13th, 2022.

Seems like the 2022 Super Bowl is going to be an unforgettable event for many of us. But more importantly, it is shaping up to be a remarkable day for the VR industry. Only last week, Meta (formerly Facebook) announced that the company is going to launch a 60-second commercial for its VR headset Meta Quest 2 as well as Horizon World, Meta’s own VR metaverse, during the game. But there is more to the surprises. On Monday, the company announced that the Rock n Roll Hall of Famers, Foo Fighters, is going to perform live in a VR concert right after the match. The GRAMMY-winning rock band’s performance will be captured in immersive 180 degrees and will be streaming on Meta Quest and Meta Quest 2.

As soon as the game concludes, Meta Quest and Meta Quest 2 users can log into Horizon Venues, the virtual events platform of the company, using the headset and catch the performance. The performance will reportedly be captured using several 180-degree cameras and will include a lot of XR elements, special effects, and more to give you a stunning virtual experience. Organisers said that the Foo Fighters VR concert will be a significant step in shaping the future of VR. It will showcase a phenomenal convergence of the virtual and the physical.

The director of the show Mark Romanek says that it is unlike anything you have ever seen in Horizon Venues. The film and music video veteran has a long list of credits to his name. Over the years, he has directed some of the most popular names in the music industry for their music videos, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Taylor Swift, Johny Cash, Taylor Swift, Madonna, and Nine Inch Nails.

Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl, who is also the founder of the enigmatic rock band, stated that the team always loves a good challenge. From performing live on the world’s biggest stages to making cameo appearances in TV miniseries and films to playing unplugged at humble clubs and Rock n Roll joints, Foo Fighters have done it pretty much all. And they are up for any novel opportunity. Keeping that in mind, the live VR concert is going to be another feather in their cap. It is the first time the Hall of Famer is going to play in immersive 180-degree. Besides, it will also be their first time collaborating with the celebrated director. Grohl also reported that among the conceptual set of songs, there is one to be played live to the audience that they have never listened to before.

The concert is scheduled to air on February 13th, right after the Super Bowl concludes. In case you miss it, it can be watched again anytime on the “Always Room” on the Venues as well as Oculus TV. A standard 2D version of the concert could also be watched on the Meta Quest Facebook Page, Foo Fighters Facebook page, and Foo Fighters’ Instagram.
