Muse’s new album comes to life in virtual reality

The rock band Muse is using VR-based games to bring tracks from their new album, Simulation Theory, to life on their latest tour, immersing fans in their Enhanced Experience pre-show.

Muse is kicking off their latest tour in February 2019 in support of their new studio album, Simulation Theory. The tour will feature exciting new experiences for fans in the form of original virtual reality games, inspired by tracks from the record, that blur the lines between fantasy and reality.

The band has been collaborating with Microsoft since early 2018 to bring three songs to life in an immersive and innovative way. While details—including which songs served as the inspiration and soundtrack for each game—are still very much under wraps, fans can buy tickets for the Muse Simulation Theory tour dates nearest them starting on November 13. The only way to see and play the custom VR games is to purchase the Enhanced Experience package, which includes a premium concert ticket, access to the Muse Mixed Reality Pre-Show Party, an exclusive show-specific poster, and more.
