Samsung will be streaming a live Coldplay concert in VR”

Samsung and Live Nation have announced a tie up that will see them broadcast Coldplay's upcoming gig at the Soldier Field stadium in Chicago.

The stream is exclusive to Samsung's Oculus-powered VR devices, which means you'll need a Gear VR headset and a compatible Samsung Galaxy smartphone to "experience the band's electrifying performance from a totally new and immersive perspective" from the comfort of your home.

Live nation is staying true to their mission of not allowing location to effect a fan's experience. Seeing a band live in concert adds a ton of external stimuli, such as the lights, the sound system, maybe even some pyrotechnics, and of course the energy of thousands of fans.

"Live Nation is a trailblazer when it comes to producing live virtual reality concerts", said Live Nation exec Kevin Chernett. Coldplay's concert set in Chicago's Soldier Field on August 17 at 8:30 pm CT will be streamed in over 50 countries.

The concert will begin at 8:30:CST (that's about 11:30am AEST here in Australia) with the concert live-streamed using LiveNation to Samsung Gear VR owners through the VR Live Pass. Artists such as Slash, Imagine Dragons, Thievery Corporation, and Lady A have all given fans virtual experiences to cheer about. Now, with increasingly more advanced streaming technologies, more fans than ever will have the opportunity to witness the group's massive A Head Full of Dreams Tour with Samsung and Live Nation's to broadcast the show live in virtual reality.
