Update: Killswitch Engage’s House of Blues Concert to be Broadcast in VR

Fans of American metalcore band Killswitch Engage will want to grab a virtual reality (VR) headset next Monday 17th April as NextVR and Live Nation will be livestreaming the band’s concert from the House of Blues.

Providing a front row seat to experience the free exclusive, NextVR and Live Nation will allow fans to get up close to the renowned band which has forged a musical foundation steeped in classic heavy metal, melodic death metal, and early punk/hardcore.

Killswitch Engage has headlined on celebrated tours like Ozzfest, Vans Warped Tour, Taste of Chaos and Rockstar Mayhem, as well as countless international festivals.

The concert will be broadcast from multiple vantage points including the front row and on-stage to provide viewers the best access for the event.

The live immersive broadcast will be globally available for free through the NextVR app. All you’ll need is a Google Daydream View or Samsung Gear VR headset, along with a compatible smartphone.

It’ll be a late one for fans with the Killswitch Engage concert at the Houston, Texas-based House of Blues taking place on Monday 17th April starting at 11pm EST (4am GMT).

This continues NextVR and Live Nation’s collaborative efforts to bring live immersive music to viewers around the world. Last month saw the companies broadcast Galactic and Robert Randolph & The Family Band from the same venue, and last week NextVR revealed it would be filming the L.A. Zoo’s 50th Anniversary Beastly Ball featuring Slash.

VRFocus will continue its coverage of NextVR and Live Nation, reporting back with the latest concert announcements.

Update: VRFocus has now learnt that the concert will begin at 9pm ET with Anthrax taking to the stage first. Killswitch Engage will then come on at 11pm ET as previously reported.
