Android smartphone users can now watch Paul McCartney’s recent Candlestick Part concert in virtual reality by downloading this app and using it in conjunction with Google Cardboard or similar smartphone-phone based headset.

” It was a spectacular show, one we think everyone should be able to experience,” said Vaunt VR, the company behind the app, in their announcement. “And now you can.”

Jaunt VR is a hardware manufacturer that makes the leading camera for filming in 360 degrees.

“Feel as though you’re by Sir Paul’s side as he plays ‘Live and Let Die’,” the company said. “See it in 360-degree, stereoscopic 3D, hear it with ambisonic audio, and immerse yourself in cinematic VR. It’s like nothing you have seen, heard, or felt before.”
