I checked it out - I love Fatboy Slim, and it was a lot of fun to see him. It was pretty impressive - the avatar moved in real-time, with the movements matching what was shown on the video screen. Things have come a long, long way since the "U2 in SL" days. Wookey had set up a ton of NPCs, so it was hard to get a good count, but from folks I was talking to in the area, probably about 50 folks hanging out.

Fatboy Slim brought his daughter up to help spin at one point, it was pretty sweet. He was closing with Right Here, Right Now... but the stream got messed up and cut in and out. So we missed the grand final, but all in all, pretty darn cool. I was in my Valve Index and the immersion and audio were great. Here are a few screenshots I took on my monitor: https://twitter.com/FlipperPA/status/1279144798872428549

All in all, it was really nice to feel immersed in a music performance. I regularly see live music in first life, and I've missed it during the lock down. I'll probably check out more in the future.
