As the world begins to recover from the global pandemic, virtual reality concerts, once seen as the next big thing in the music industry, have lost some of their momenta. With live shows making a comeback, the interest in virtual performances seems to have waned. But now, Calvin Harris, a prominent name in the industry, is set to host a virtual concert that might reignite interest in this type of event. It remains to be seen whether Harris’ endorsement of virtual reality concerts will spark a resurgence in the trend or not.
In 2022, Harris released his highly-anticipated sixth studio album, “Funk Wav Bounces Vol 2,” which features appearances from Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, 21 Savage, and Pusha T. In case you missed it, stream the album below.
