“Alone Together” Concert Starts

The pioneering French musician will premiere ‘Alone Together’ VR concert on June 21st at 20:15 PM GMT (21:15 CET). He will perform live on a virtual stage in a social Virtual Reality platform called VRChat

The live performance is estimated to last 40 minutes, taking place in a virtual environment built by VRrOOm, hosted in VRChat. To see the concert in virtual reality you will require SteamVR headsets including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Valve Index.

Additionally, the night will also see a “silent broadcast” of the concert in the courtyard of the Palais de Royal in Paris, where students of the performing arts will be able to listen to audio via smartphone-tethered headphones, whilst watching the concert on a big screen.

Legendary Pioneering Musician Jean-Michel Jarre

“Having performed concerts in extraordinary venues, virtual reality will now allow me to play in unimaginable spaces while remaining on a physical stage” says Jarre.

The 71-year-old performer is probably most known for his 1976 album Oxygene, which sold over 15 million copies. He is one of Frances most innovative musicians and has performed record-breaking concerts including his Moscow concert which saw 3.5 million people in attendance.
