Global Superstar Ricky Martin to Thrill Audiences Around the World With the Launch of a Never-Before-Seen-App
“RICKY MARTIN CONCERT-4U”
IN A PARTNERSHIP WITH MEDIA TECHNOLOGY COMPANY 3D-4U AND SONY MUSIC LATIN, MARTIN INTRODUCES A NEW WAY FOR FANS TO CONTROL THEIR VIEW OF HIS SOLD OUT AUSTRALIAN ARENA TOUR ON THEIR iPHONES, iPADs, iOS AND ANDROID DEVICES.
Miami, FL (February 4, 2014).– Global superstar and multi-GRAMMY®-winning artist Ricky Martin and Dr. S. Jay Jayaram, President, 3D-4U, announced today the launch of “RICKY MARTIN CONCERT-4U”, a revolutionary new app that will change the way users view concerts of their favorite artists forever, right in the palm of their hands.
“RICKY MARTIN CONCERT-4U”, now available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play, features selected songs from Martin’s sold out Australian concert tour displayed in a panoramic, user-controllable “Surround” that has never been possible until now.
3D-4U is the world’s first provider of a Personalized Event Viewer, based on their I3 Media (Interactive, Immersive, Individualized) technology that gives users control of their view of an event, 2D or 3D, making it the ultimate interactive and immersive fan experience.
The critically acclaimed concert can be seen from multiple camera locations and angles at the choice of the user. Users can also pan, tilt, or zoom to interact and look in any direction, allowing them to see just what they want to see right on their iPad, iOS and Android devices. The same content can be viewed differently each time. Every fan can use the “Be your own producer” capability of this technology to create their personalized takes (called Twirls-4UTM) and share it through Facebook, Twitter and other networks.
Ricky Martin, one of the most successful and influential artists in music, having sold more than 70 million records worldwide and certifying 95+ platinum records in over 20 countries, dreamed of being able to share his concerts with all of his fans, no matter where they were. Now, with “RICKY MARTIN CONCERT-4U”, his dream is a reality. “On my recent tour across Australia, I kept hearing from people all over the world how they wished to be there and be part of the tour or how they wished they could come to the concerts. This inspired me to create with 3D-4U, this amazing application that allows everyone to experience being there with me. This revolutionary app gives you the control of what you want to see while my band; dancers and I perform on stage. It even allows you to produce your own special and favorite moments from this experience and of course tweet them. Those of you who were with me can relive the whole experience, and everyone can join me now in a way never before possible. I hope you enjoy my Concert-4U experience, have fun!” said Ricky Martin.
“It is a great pleasure and an honor to release our first mass consumer product in partnership with a superstar such as Ricky Martin and the visionary media giant Sony Music US Latin. Fans crave customization and personalization that is meaningful. We at 3D-4U are bringing a revolutionary and magical individual experience to them, both in 2D and in 3D. We are blending entertainment, social media and gaming to create something that they have never experienced before.” said Dr. Jay.
Afo Verde, Chairman & CEO Sony Music Latin Region, Spain and Portugal commented, “Once again Ricky strikes back with an innovative project. It’s amazing how he always incorporates in his career all that brings him closer to his audience. Both the content of the application and its functionality are absolutely wonderful.”
“We are thrilled to be part of an innovative platform that provides fans a unique interactive music experience. We’re proud that Ricky is the first artist to use 3D-4U’s application by making his successful Australian concert tour available to music lovers worldwide.” said Nir Seroussi, President Sony Music US Latin.
Now the show that Australian press called “one of the most entertaining, exciting and dance packed concerts of the year” and “a breakneck, feverish tempo of entertainment performance that showed all of us just how and why Martin is the musical success that he is”, is available worldwide at the Apple App Store and on Google Play. This first launch of the “RICKY MARTIN CONCERT-4U” app supports iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. The Twirls-4U social media feature is currently available on iOS devices and will be available on Android devices in a few months. Additional features and operating systems are being scheduled for release over the next several months.
