For those of you who still remember record stores, rock’n roll, and most of all The Who, this will be some interesting news: To mark their 50th anniversary the English rock band have released the free iOS/Android “The Who Immersive App” – according to their website “a living, breathing, virtual Whoseum full of the energy, outrageous musicality and rebelliousness of The Who.” And since we have been waiting for the official release of the Oculus Rift VR device ever since we got our hands on an early model last year, it is exciting news that there will be an Oculus Rift specific version in 2015.

We leave you with this quote from Roger Daltrey, lead singer of the band:
I’m not a fan of smartphones but have to admit they do open up huge possibilities to entertain and educate. The Music business needs to use every avenue possible to keep the fans and the music in close contact. This app will hopefully teach our newer, younger fans everything they might want to know of our history, and hopefully unearth some odds and sods for our older ones.
