The Chainsmokers at Alexandra Palace
Iconic London venue Alexandra Palace and MelodyVR announce ground-breaking partnership granting exclusive rights to capture concerts in virtual reality
Following last week’s announcement of MelodyVR’s first live event partnership with The NEC Group, today we are delighted to announce our exclusive partnership with Alexandra Palace.
It was from Alexandra Palace that the BBC launched the world’s first high-definition television service in 1936, whilst the medium was still in development. It is in this spirit of innovation that Alexandra Palace looks to the next leap in entertainment platforms with MelodyVR, where viewers can already experience The Chainsmoker’s sold-out concert at the venue.
As part of this partnership, MelodyVR will live stream real-time concerts via VR and offer virtual tickets to sold-out shows with the biggest artists, enabling an unlimited number of fans to attend in-demand concerts around the globe.
Lucy Fenner, Commercial Director of Alexandra Palace Trading Ltd said:
“We are proud to be continuing our legacy of innovation by partnering with MelodyVR. In the last 12 months we’ve seen a record-breaking growth in concert attendances but now, through this partnership, even more people will be able to experience the magic of a gig at Alexandra Palace as well as introducing this iconic venue to new audiences around the world”
Steven Hancock, COO and Co-founder of MelodyVR said:
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Alexandra Palace, to establish another milestone in their story, delivering unique live and recorded VR experiences from one of the most important venues in British entertainment history.”
