Lil Wayne is starting his 2017 off right. In addition to making moves with Young Money Sports, Wayne will also be featured as the first artist on Hulu’s VR Concert series, OnStage.
The virtual reality concert series is produced by Hulu and Live Nation, and offers a 360 degree viewing experience, offering an intimate glimpse into the creative process of artists’ live music performances.
“Virtual Reality is an entirely new medium, and ‘On Stage’ is a first-of-its kind premium music experience,” said Noah Heller, VP of Emerging Technology at Hulu, in a statement. “Our partnership with Live Nation, a company that is synonymous with connecting music fans with their favorite artists, has allowed us to create an experience where you, the fan, are on the stage for the performance, and backstage with the artist. The result is a highly intimate experience that you cannot find anywhere else.”
Lil Wayne will star in the debut episode, which airs on Jan. 26 on Hulu’s VR app. Check out the trailer above.
