MelodyVR, self-described as the world’s first virtual reality music platform, have revealed Liam Payne as the star for their first ever global live-stream.

Announced earlier today (7th December), the event will take place at a secret London location on 19th December, with fans internationally (and in the UK) able to immerse themselves on-stage with Liam via the MelodyVR app on the Oculus Go standalone headset or Samsung’s Galaxy Gear.

Payne’s show has also been touted as the first in a series of VR broadcasts from MelodyVR, which has secured exclusive relationships across the music sphere, including all the major labels, publishers, music festivals and various concert venues too (including London’s O2 Arena and Alexandra Palace). Whilst features for the event are still under-wraps, existing shows on the MelodyVR app allow users to be transported across various ‘jump spots’, from within the crowd, to front-of-stage, to right next to the artist itself.

“I can’t wait for this show” says Liam – “For those who are going to be there on the night, it’s going to be amazing, but the fact there will be people from right across the globe watching the live stream via MelodyVR makes it extra special.”

The Oculus Go is available now in both 32 & 64GB versions:
