 View the 360° show for free via MelodyVR app on smart­phones and VR head­sets, the first time the band has per­formed togeth­er since lock­down.

 Hip hop roy­alty Cypress Hill will per­form live to fans around the world this Fri­day even­ing on MelodyVR. Syn­onym­ous with huge nights out and big nights in, this is an oppor­tun­ity to wit­ness the group up close and like nev­er before.

Cypress Hill’s Live from LA show will be free to view via the MelodyVR app on smart­phones and VR head­sets. Through MelodyVR’s world-class cam­era and pro­duc­tion tech­no­logy, view­ers will be trans­por­ted to the state-of-the-art stu­dio space to exper­i­ence the exclus­ive 360° per­form­ance, and vir­tu­ally stand next Cypress Hill while watch­ing the story of the band told on bespoke video walls.

One of hip hop’s biggest ever acts, Cypress Hill soundtracked a gen­er­a­tion and con­tin­ue to inspire artists and audi­ences alike. They have sold more than 20 mil­lion albums thanks to their mas­ter­ful team­ing of power­ful lyr­ics and pro­duc­tion. Their Live from LA per­form­ance is their first since the stay at home order was issued in early March, when the band was about to embark on a world tour.

Cypress Hill say: ““When we were approached to per­form for our fans again, we jumped on it. We def­in­itely wanted to give them a unique exper­i­ence with this intim­ate show. Part­ner­ing with MelodyVR for Live from LA allowed us to do just that.”

Cypress Hill’s Live from LA 360° appear­ance is a typ­ic­ally innov­at­ive move from the band. When they broke onto the scene in 1988, they didn’t look like any oth­er hip hop col­lect­ive or sound like any­thing on the radio. They made his­tory as the first Latino Amer­ic­an hip hop record­ing group to go plat­in­um, with GRAMMY® Award nom­in­a­tions, acclaimed col­lab­or­a­tions and sold out tours under their belt. Immor­tal­ized in everything from the Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame to The Simpsons, Cypress Hill keep for­ging ahead, with their ninth full-length stu­dio album, Ele­phants On Acid, released in 2018.

MelodyVR’s Live from LA series has been developed to provide fans with incred­ible immers­ive sets from their favor­ite artists, while main­tain­ing the highest levels of safety for both per­formers and crew. Artists fea­tured so far include John Legend, The Score, Katelyn Tarv­er, DaniLeigh and Zella Day with many more yet to be announced. Cypress Hill’s Live from LA show will be avail­able on demand from June 25 for those who miss the June 19 broad­cast.
