One of the most famous guitarists hosts VR concert
Slash became world famous in the eighties as the lead guitarist of the rock band Guns n’ Roses. In 1996 he left the band and founded several solo projects like Slash’s Snakepit and Velvet Revolver before the big reunion in 2016.
In 2011, Slash joined forces with Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy and the band The Conspirators. Together, the group has since released four studio albums and two live albums. The current album “4” was released in February 2022 and has since been promoted with numerous live concerts. You can now attend one of them in the Metaverse.
What can you expect in Slash’s VR concert?
Slash feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators released their latest album “4” with a live recording. The concert, which took place at Studio 60 in Los Angeles, includes all ten songs from the record. Soundscape VR now ports the 2D version of the recording to virtual reality.
Similar to Bastille’s VR concert, a recording of the band’s original performance is played on various screens placed in a virtual environment. In the VR worlds of Soundscape, however, you have more interaction options and can, for example, move around freely with a jetpack, shoot flares or influence the colors of the environment.
If you want to experience the immersive concert, you will need the VR music app Soundscape VR. The download via SteamVR or the Oculus Store is free. Owners of a Meta Quest 2 can only use Soundscape VR via Oculus Link. There is no separate Quest app.
