wow thats just terrible, I feel so bad for the people who bought VR gear specifically for this.
Also $54 for the VR version? Thats such a ripoff.
Unless its at least 5+ hours long and features extensive use of the VR features thats far too expensive

Sadly, the virtual idols never arrived on screen. Approximately 20 minutes before the event began, staff announced it was cancelled due to technical problems.

This bit is slightly misleading/incorrect. The actual event still went on and was streamed, though it was far from perfect from a technical point of view (The actual performances were by and large great), it was only the VR participation part (the part that required the ticket purchase) that was canceled.

So I can use my VR set for this now? That's amazing, but you'll know everybody will just walk all over the stage if given the chance.
