Watch Namewee's virtual concert created with Yahoo TV's AR technology

Namewee’s AR Concert LIVE in Kaohsiung.

Malaysian rapper Namewee has collaborated with Yahoo TV to release a virtual concert, Namewee’s AR Concert LIVE in Kaohsiung.

The 20-minute concert, organised by the tourism bureau of Taiwan’s Kaohsiung city, was produced by Yahoo TV using the latest augmented reality (AR) technology.

As Namewee is currently based in Malaysia because of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, and couldn’t travel to Kaohsiung, Yahoo TV created a virtual AR stage for the singer.

The cross-border production premiered live online last night. Namewee recorded the concert in Malaysia, while Yahoo TV produced the live show from Taiwan.

Namewee, who sings in a mix of Mandarin and dialect, performed three songs – Stranger In The North, Oh My God, and Getaway.

Here’s the concert recording:
