Eric Church becomes first artist to release VR headlining set

Nashville’s “wild card” (Billboard) is taking his “expertly crafted show” (Rolling Stone) to a whole new level by offering fans the first of a kind full-length concert experience via vantage.tv’s virtual reality experience. The concert, that features Church’s headlining performance from Stagecoach, offers 180 and 360-degree views from the audience and the stage itself using an eight-camera set up along with immersive audio allowing fans to feel as though they’re rocking with The Chief right there at the festival. This on-demand experience can be purchased by fans and watched on their iPhone or Android phone via Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear VR.

Fans will be immersed in the music as Church plays his biggest hits like 3x Platinum-certified “Springsteen” and Platinum-certified favorite, “Creepin,” as well as songs off his latest album Mr. Misunderstood including his recent No. 1 hit “Record Year” and “Knives of New Orleans.” With the experience, fans will even be part of a moment, true to Church’s rowdy show, where the crowd threw their boots on stage for Church during his performance of the famous, “These Boots.”

Virtual concert goers can choose how they experience the 13-song set by choosing either the multiple camera director’s cut, front row of the concert, or a full 360 view. All access to this virtual event will be $19.99 for a VR Ticket to view the concert and $34.99 for the VR Ticket +VR viewer bundle.

Church announced his 60+ city 2017 Holdin’ My Own Tour via Facebook Live at a two-night show at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. The tour, that kicks off in Lincoln, NE and ends with a two-night run in Nashville, TN, will feature two sets from Church sans openers.
