Brad Paisley is taking his Virtual Reality World Tour to another level. He’s adding a festival element called The Escape.
The Escape a fun-filled area with contests, games, food, Slip ‘n’ Slide, inflatables, and a bonus performance stage. Playing off the Virtual Reality theme, the bonus stage will be a “Virtual Opry” complete with a futuristic Grand Ole Opry backdrop and the signature mic stands.
Joining the Virtual Reality Tour and playing the “Virtual Opry” stage will be Love and Theft, Jana Kramer, and Kristen Kelly. Fans will get a chance to meet and get autographs from the artists following their performances.
Jana tweeted that “dreams do come true” and “she’ll see you all on the road.“
Love And Theft is excited that the new shows kick off on May 18!
