Coldplay To Broadcast Chicago Show In VR

Coldplay’s tour stop in Chicago on August 17 will be extra special…for those not in attendance.

Fans with Samsung devices and Gear VR headsets will be able to take in that night’s show in its entirety through the brand’s VR service for free.

If the experience goes off without a hitch, it makes you wonder what other acts will start streaming in VR.

Fans who want to watch the Coldplay VR stream will need to log on at 9:30 PM EST.  So far, there’s no word yet if the show will be available for viewing later, so you better set yourself a reminder.
