Broadcasting Concerts In Virtual Reality?

Depending on the pricing and how this is done, I think a virtual reality concert could be the next best thing to actually being there. It would definitely be better than just watching it on television.

There are no details yet on which musical acts you'll be able to see via NextVR, but the company promises a "regular supply of world-class live music shows." As with NextVR's previous broadcasts, these will be available via Samsung's Gear VR via the Oculus Home app, with other platforms coming soon. The company says the first of its musical VR events will take place this summer, with a full schedule for the following year to come. NextVR has previously partnered with Coldplay to produce a small demo clip for its app, but this is major step up for the company.
