The event will use the MelodyVR's proprietary technology to deliver a simultaneous, real-time VR broadcast of the performance, to all territories across-the-globe where the MelodyVR platform is currently available, EVR said.

"This is a hugely exciting moment for MelodyVR. We truly believe that virtual reality has the power to connect artists with fans like never before,” EVR’s executive chairman said in a statement.

“It is a pleasure to work with Liam and we're thrilled to be broadcasting his headline performance in London, exclusively to fans around the world in virtual reality. It's a pleasure to invite fans both in London and across the globe to experience this amazing event, with a whole lot more to come,” he added.
