Eric Church Goes Virtual Reality for Concert Special
Fans of Eric Church now have the chance to witness the country superstar's live show in a whole new way via a virtual reality experience.
Church's headlining performance from the 2016 Stagecoach Festival in Los Angeles comes to life with the help of Vantage.tv's virtual reality experience, created from 180 and 360-degree shots from the show, capturing both Church's on stage presence and audience reaction through video and audio.
The eight-camera setup gives fans an up-close look at the country star, documenting a variety of moments from the concert including performances of signature hits like "Springsteen," "Creepin'" and "Drink in My Hand," in addition to tracks off his 2016 CMA Awards Album of the Year, Mr. Misunderstood, including "Record Year" and "Knives of New Orleans."

"With the experience, fans will even be part of a moment, true to Church’s rowdy show," according to a press release. The virtual concert also includes footage of fans throwing their boots on stage during a performance of the singer's early track "These Boots" off his debut album, Sinners Like Me.
Fans have the option to view the show from the vantage point of their choice between multiple camera director's cut, front row center, or an all-encompassing 360 view. Purchase options are available at the Vantage website.
Church is currently on his 2017 Holdin’ My Own Tour, a unique venture in itself in that the "Kill a Word" singer is performing without any opening acts and playing two sets with his band with an intermission in between. The jam-packed tour schedule continues through May, when shows wrap up at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
