Janelle Monáe To Play VR Concert To Celebrate Season Finale Of HBO’s ‘Lovecraft Country’

Janelle Monáe will play a virtual reality concert to celebrate the season finale of the new HBO series “Lovecraft Country.”

The event, titled “Music of the Cosmos,” will air on October 19 at 10 p.m. ET, a day after the season finale of “Lovecraft Country” on October 18 on HBO.

Warner Media announced that the complete first season will be available to stream on HBO Max.

The first episode of “Lovecraft” Country reached more than 9 million viewers across all platforms, and it has been the No. 1 series on HBO Max since its debut in August.

The musical experience re-imagines the future of performances and live events, featuring a virtual environment that is interactive and directly impacted by the artist’s physical performance.

Ahead of Monáe’s set, guests will be invited into The Reliquary, a mystery room hosted by “Lovecraft Country’s” Michael Kenneth Williams. The room will be littered with artifacts from throughout the show and virtual experience — each with an accompanying audio snippet narrated by Williams.

Monáe said she is very excited to partner with HBO and The Mill to pioneer the future of concert experiences in Sanctum.

“I always strive for innovation, and this project gives me the special opportunity to celebrate Lovecraft Country, a show I’m a huge fan of, and connect with fans in a completely new way using virtual reality,” the eight-time Grammy nominated singer-songwriter said.
