The band Within Temptation has found an innovative way to entertain their fans with the Within Temptation: The Aftermath – A Show in Virtual Reality. The band had passed on several live stream shows during the pandemic, but this is an innovative way to get back amongst the fans.
Singer Sharon den Adel said, “During the whole pandemic, we weren’t keen on doing a live stream. The magic of seeing and hearing a band perform live — combined with the energy of the crowd — is something you cannot simply recreate with a live stream. So, for a long time, we were clueless. One thing we knew for sure: We would not compromise on a live stream if we could offer something out of the ordinary, something jaw-dropping, intriguing, spectacular, and mythical!”
“Then we found it: A world that we could shape into our wildest fantasies and in which we, as a band, could perform while still maintaining the dynamics and magic of our traditional live show. We are absolutely thrilled to invite you to Within Temptation: The Aftermath – A Show in Virtual Reality. A show that takes place in different scenes of a post-apocalyptic world, in which we are witness to the aftermath of destruction of mankind. A world in which it is unknown if anyone or anything of the human race survived. It is a search for answers about both its becoming as well as its legacy,” she added.
The band will perform both newer and older songs in four different worlds during the one-hour concert. In addition, numerous guest singers are also set to make an appearance on the show for some remarkable duets.
The band says, “We are absolutely gutted that the Worlds Collide tour has been pushed back again and we cannot perform live in the same venue as our fans. With this digital show, we hope that the fans can still feel our energy, our love for — and above all — our passion for music. Take care and we hope to see you on July 8 or July 9.”
You can tune in to Within Temptation: The Aftermath – A Show in Virtual Reality on July 8 at 8PM CEST.
