Foo Fighters First 2022 Concert Is A Disaster


Foo Fighters recently made their VR debut inside Horizon Venues last night after the Super Bowl, but the Meta Quest concert was quite disastrous for them. The band had pre-recorded a 40-minute video performance that went on inside the app and in browsers following the Super Bowl. If fans would join in Venues, then they would get to hang out with friends as one’s Meta avatar while watching the performance on an enormous screen. However, as it turns out the experiences were poor, and many comments from the fans saw them expressing displeasure. It was previously noted that Foo Fighters & Jane’s Addiction Supergroup released album.

Fans of Foo Fighters had a bad time

Kent Bye of Voices of VR recently said that the Venues experience only opened at 8pm PST, the exact time the show was scheduled to begin. This caused a lot of confusion for people trying to figure out where to head in the build-up to the concert, and the band’s recording started five minutes after doors opened. When the event did launch, it seemed to be popular – Bye’s image shows over 10,000 people looking to watch the show.

It was quite problematic, as many people couldn’t get into the experience at all. That includes UploadVR’s own Harry Baker, who tried for half an hour past the event’s starting time but got nowhere after repeatedly pressing the ‘Join’ button.

One of the fans, TheClaff had revealed on Reddit that: “Can’t get in. Just waiting in lobby.”

Horizon VP Vivek Sharma also responded to Harry’s tweet, citing “unprecedented” demand as the reason for the issues.

These issues were noted in the middle of Meta’s big advertising push for its social Horizon apps, which it sees as a foundation for a future metaverse. The push included a live action spot during the Super Bowl that saw Quest 2 headsets rebranded from Oculus to the company’s new name.
