Continuing its crossover between game spaces and music events, Roblox is hosting the Twenty One Pilots Concert Experience this weekend.
A pioneering interactive virtual concert powered by the latest Roblox technology, the fully immersive performance begins tomorrow – Friday, September 17th at 4 pm PDT. This marks the beginning of the Grammy Award-winning Fueled By Ramen/Elektra artist’s sold out Takeøver Tour.
The high-fidelity experience will feature the first-ever dynamic setlist dictated by fans in real-time; metaverse-spanning pre-concert quests involving some of Roblox’s most popular experiences that also feature custom portals that will transport users into the pre-concert venue; exclusive custom-designed virtual merchandise and more. Fans can access the experience and join the pre-show festivities right now, ahead of the event.
Mike Easterlin, Co-President, Elektra Music Group, said: “Tyler and Josh are two of the most unapologetically bold, forward-thinking artists I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Their commitment to connecting with their fans in new and creative ways is unparalleled. Roblox is a perfect partner in delivering another unique and exciting new way for fans to experience the world of Twenty One Pilots.”
Jon Vlassopulos, Global Head of Music, Roblox, said: “We are taking virtual concerts to the next level with our Twenty One Pilots virtual concert experience. We wanted to make it truly interactive and participatory for the fans, for the band, and for our broader Roblox developer community.
“Fans will be able to decide the order of the songs that they hear by choosing with their friends. They will be able to interact with the environment in creative ways becoming part of the show, and Tyler and Josh will participate in a live chat with fans after the virtual concert. This is what Roblox is built for, bringing people together to interact in new and exciting ways and we are just scratching the surface of what’s possible.”
