    Ever wanted to go to a Coldplay concert? If you own a Gear VR headset, you’ve got a free ticket for the VR livestream of the band’s ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ performance next week.

    Samsung and Live Nation are teaming up to bring Coldplay’s performance on August 17th from Chicago’s Soldier Field straight to your headset, starting at 8:30 pm CT (your timezone here). The concert will be streamed in VR live on Gear VR through the Samsung VR app, and will also be available for replay for a limited time following the event.

    Gear VR users in more than 50 countries will be able to view the VR livestream, and Samsung promises that the VR broadcast will let fans “[experience] the energy of the show like never before.”

    According to Billboard Boxscore, Coldplay’s ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ tour is the fifth highest grossing of all time, with more than 5 million tickets sold. A Head Full Of Dreams is the band’s seventh album.

    Gear VR users have reason to be excited, but, as with many 360 video releases, those with high-end headsets like Vive, Rift, and PSVR, are strangely lef1t out of the loop.
