The singer will hit road for a series of shows in the US entitled ‘Enter Thee Hottieverse’.
The VR concert will feature a multi-song set that moves through a series of environments, and features “hot custom” wardrobes.
Fans will be able to go to local cinemas and put on the VR headsets dubbed “Hottie Mounted Displays”, before watching Megan perform. Tickets go on sale on tomorrow (March 2) and can be purchased here.
“Virtual reality has always been an interest of mine, and I’m glad that we’ll be able to make history with this experience,” the rapper said in a statement via Billboard. “My hotties will get to watch me perform in a completely different and unique way, and I appreciate the AmazeVR team for helping me to bring this VR vision to life. I can’t wait to see the Hotties show up to the tour.”
The tour will hit 10 US cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Miami and Washington DC from April 5 before wrapping up in New York with four performances from June 30 to July 3. You can find more information here.
