Rapper Post Malone will stream an upcoming gig of his “Runaway” tour in virtual reality: Post Malone’s Raleigh, NC concert will be broadcast live to users of Facebook’s Oculus Go and Quest headsets on Oct. 17 starting at 5 p.m. PT.
The concert is being streamed by Los Angeles-based immersive entertainment startup Supersphere, and will be made available in Facebook’s Oculus Venues app. Fans can sign up for the concert on Oculus.com to be alerted ahead of time.
Facebook first launched Oculus Venues as a social events app with the introduction of the Oculus Go in May of 2018, and brought it to its Quest headset this July. The app has been used for live sports events, concerts and comedy nights. Earlier this week, the NBA announced that it would once again be streaming select games of the new season via Oculus Venues.
