Foo Fighters has a really busy agenda this year. After announcing a bunch of shows they will be performing, which also includes their upcoming 2022 North America tour, Foo Fighters has just dropped the news that they now also will be playing virtual reality concerts at the after-show of the Super Bowl.
Among their amazing live performances, Foo Fighters will be rocking on stages in a different way this time as they will be playing in virtual reality. While Foo Fighters will be performing a virtual reality concert for the Super Bowl after-show via Horizon Venues, many other shows will be performed around the Super Bowl festivities this weekend.
For their upcoming virtual reality show, Foo Fighters has settled with video director Mark Romanek for shootings. To provide the best ‘real’ experience, multiple 180° positioned cameras are used around the stage, while a custom stage design, effects, lighting programs, and XR elements blended into the concert scene will provide the viewers a very special Foo Fighters experience along with all, as well.
In the meantime, also Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl also explained their upcoming virtual reality show on the Super Bowl after-show and said:
“Foo Fighters love a challenge—from playing the biggest stages in the world to the tiniest clubs to making movies and miniseries… We’ve pretty much done it all. But we’ve never collaborated with Mark Romanek on a conceptual set of songs (including one being played live for the first time ever) for a worldwide audience, where everyone has the best seats in the house thanks to the most badass VR tech… until now. Join us when we cross that one of the FF bucket list!”
What is more, even though Foo Fighters have been trying to keep their upcoming setlist for the show hidden, it is still revealed that they actually plan to play some of their rarely played songs and along with a never-played song for the viewers, as well.
While Meta will be hosting the virtual reality concert, the Super Bowl after-show will be kicking off at 8 PM PT immediately following the conclusion of the Super Bowl. The viewers will be able to watch the band’s show in VR via Horizon Venues or in 2D as well as via Facebook Watch on the Foo Fighters Facebook page and also on the band’s Instagram account.
Those who have never been to a Horizon Venues show, first need to download the app before getting ready to join the Venues lobby along with other viewers as they also dress up their avatars however they want. While waiting for the show, the viewers will also be able to attend a custom football-themed environment as they will also be able to pass through other worlds, where they can also take part in other football-themed games, as well.
In the meantime, Foo Fighters have also been pretty occupied lately as it has been preparing for its upcoming 2022 North America Tour to support their 2021 album, Medicine at Midnight, along with other events it will take place. But what is more even exciting for the fans, the famous rock band’s anticipated horror-comedy movie “Studio 666” is also almost arrived to be released in more than 2,000 theatres on February 25th, 2022.
