Queen and Adam Lambert's virtual reality experience to premiere at Tribeca Virtual Reality Arcade

The Tribeca Virtual Reality Arcade at Westfield World Trade Center in New York will host the world premiere of Queen and Adam Lambert's first live-concert VR experience, entitled 'VR The Champions'. 

Iconic guitarist Brian May issued a press release via his official website this afternoon and explained that the 3D VR film was "shot in front of an audience of 15,000 fans live in Barcelona in May 2016" and it "features performances of "Radio Ga Ga," "We Will Rock You," and "We Are the Champions".

The press release continues: "The production used a four-point wire to enable the camera to fly above the audience and amongst the band, capturing their performance in a truly immersive way."

The showing will take place on the closing weekend (November 18-20) and it will allow visitors to "rock out with a transformative concert experience from an impossible perspective". Brian May said:

"Having been enchanted by stereoscopy all my life, I'm thrilled that we've been able to dive in to VR, and deliver the first truly immersive 360-degree 3D 'flying rig' rock concert footage. This turned out to be a show-stopper… so enjoy, and there is more to come. Rock!”
