% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

NexTech AR Solutions Corp (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FRA:N29) is jumping into the rap game, the company announced Tuesday, with plans to host a virtual meet-and-greet with the Grammy-nominated artist Offset, a member of the group Migos. 

The event, done in collaboration with the AXR+EXP concert series, will be hosted on the company’s recently acquired AiRShow app on October 16. The concert can be streamed here

Offset and the other performers at the event will appear as human holograms, created by Nextech’s AR technology, that move around in fans’ real-world space through their mobile device. Attendees will be able to record a short video or take a photo of their experience and share on social media, the company said.

Offset’s debut solo album “Father of 4” achieved certified gold status from the Recording Industry Association of America, and Migos has sold more than three million albums globally. His appearance in the AiRShow app provides a unique opportunity for his millions of global fans to interact in an augmented reality environment, the company said.

“We are super excited to work with such a huge global super talent as Offset-and to use our AR as a part of the AXR+EXP concert series,” CEO Evan Gappelberg said in a statement. “This is the second virtual concert  for the AiRShow app and I see huge economic upside for virtual concerts and post-pandemic concerts using our AiRShow app for special VIP interaction and even for live streaming artists.”

Gappelberg believes these virtual concerts would pair well with another AR offering on the horizon. 

“As we are anticipating Apple’s AR glasses launching soon, we believe that our AiRShow app will be a great addition for the glasses,” Gappelberg said. “With Apple’s AR glasses creating a window into another world we see these types of human holographic performances becoming the new normal in that world and we want our AiRShow app to be a part of that future. With this activation, we are positioning NexTech to be the leader in next-generation entertainment.”

AiRShow is an app that allows you to watch live performances in your own home. Tapping on a featured event, or using an exclusive code allows users to see artists appear right in front of them through augmented reality.
