Tom Grennan to perform a VR gig at the O2 Academy Brixton

Original Article

Tom Grennan is set to play a special Virtual Reality gig at London’s Brixton Academy next month.

It’s set to be the first gig in an upcoming series by MelodyVR, who recently hosted the Wireless Connect festival, a replacement for this year’s cancelled Wireless Festival.

The gig, set for October 2, will be available on the MelodyVR app and via VR headsets. Tickets for the show go on sale on Wednesday (September 16) at 10am BST.

“Nothing can replace the thrill of live music, especially in a venue as iconic as O2 Academy Brixton,” Grennan said of the upcoming gig.

“I have loved playing there in the past and I can’t wait to get on the stage again with MelodyVR and bring you a taste of the new album. I am putting together something really special for everyone at home who I’ve missed so much.”

This announcement comes after MelodyVR first set their intentions to run virtual concerts from the historic venue that is O2 Academy Brixton. But what will fans make of this innovative way of putting on a live show?
