KILLSWITCH ENGAGE To Perform Live In Virtual Reality For The First Time

On Monday, April 17 at 7 p.m. CT, NextVR and Live Nation will broadcast live in virtual reality KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's concert at the House of Blues in Houston, Texas. Fans will get front row and on-stage access as they are transported to an immersive experience featuring this dynamic group performing for the first time in virtual reality.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE is currently on a co-headlining tour with ANTHRAX, dubbed "The Killthrax Tour".

The live VR broadcast will be available for free globally (except in China) through the NextVR app. Fans with a Google Daydream or Samsung Gear VR headset, along with a compatible smartphone, can experience the concert live by downloading the NextVR app from the Oculus store for GearVR or the Google Play store for Daydream.

Fans can go here for additional details on the concert.

This concert is part of Live Nation's multi-year concert series with NextVR. Together, the two companies continue to provide live, virtual reality performances, transforming the way fans interact with artists and iconic venues, making access to live music events easier to achieve.

Broadcasting from multiple vantage points, NextVR and Live Nation deliver fans unprecedented access to live events they may not be able to experience in person.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's latest album "Incarnate", was released in March 2016 via Roadrunner Records.

2016 saw KILLSWITCH ENGAGE appearing on a "Stars Wars"-themed Revolver cover, staging an unforgettable and intimate, five-club New York City takeover for album release week, and embarking on an impressive "Incarnate" world tour. The band also released a limited-edition seven-inch single as part of the spring version of Record Store Day in April 2016; it featured "Define Love", an unreleased track from the "Incarnate" sessions.
