Oculus Venues Brings the Stadium Experience to Oculus Go and Gear VR

The first event will be broadcast tonight.

Making mobile virtual reality (VR) headsets even more social, today Oculus has launched Oculus Venues, its one-stop-shop for live entertainment including concerts, sporting events, stand-up comedy, movies, and more, all for Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR.

Oculus Venues will give viewers the best seat in the house to watch live events, which begin this very evening 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 app was announced during Oculus Connect 4 last year, reappearing during the Facebook Developers Conference (F8) this month. Not only does it allow you to watch live events there are a bunch of other social features built in, such as connecting with friends and family so they can all watch a game or show together.

For a lot of these events Oculus will be partnering with specialist broadcaster NextVR – which recently launched an app for HTC Vive – which will present content like Gotham Comedy Live from NYC and Major League Baseball.
