AmazeVR Secures $15M to Bring Immersive Concerts to VR
AmazeVR, a Los Angeles-based company creating on-demand VR video, has raised $15 million in funding to refocus its efforts to create VR concerts. The company says its first major immersive concert will feature artist Megan Thee Stallion and debut this Spring at activations in select AMC theaters. In the future the company also plans to offer its immersive concerts to at-home headsets.
Founded in 2015, AmazeVR previously focused on building out its 360 video subscription service for VR headsets, which features a variety of content. The company has however recently pivoted to exclusively recording musical artists, letting fans get an up-close and personal view of pre-recorded content which has been mashed up with computer-generated effects.
