Flying Lotus in 3D at Stage AE on Tue., Sept. 3, 2019
Never one to do things simply or easily, Flying Lotus hit the road this year behind his mammoth 27-track album Flamagra
with a "3D tour." FlyLo (real name Steven Ellison) employed similar technology for live shows before, but this one was the first tour touted entirely as a 3D experience. So what does that mean? Descriptions have been vague so far but described as a "holographic jam session" involving a number of screens, lights, and thousands of 3D glasses.
"I've always wanted my shows to feel more cinematic because that's how I enjoy my music," Ellison told Engadget
. "I love this idea that people, when I look out into the crowd, it looks like they're going to the movies."
