Touring the musical Metaverse: H&M's first-ever virtual concert
Virtual concerts taking place within the Metaverse are the next step in the evolution of the music industry. The coronavirus forced many artists to play virtual concerts of their live on-stage performances in 2020. While this may seem like a new development, virtual pop stars have been selling out both offline and online concert venues for years. Virtual artists’ human counterparts are only just beginning to understand the untapped potential of virtual concerts.
As more humans enter the Metaverse and more virtual pop stars enter our world, the lines between physical and virtual reality become increasingly blurred each day.
