Real Estate unveiled Quarantour, “an augmented reality experience that brings fans as close to a live concert as possible without having to leave home.” Fans can watch a virtual Real Estate concert presented by the band here on either an iPhone (using Safari in iOS 11 or later) or Android device.

The five-piece Real Estate lineup performs four songs from their 2020 studio album The Main Thing as well as a three-song encore featuring more material from the LP during the virtual concert. Real Estate’s Quarantour also includes full light and sound rigs. Be on the lookout for between-song banter as well.

“Sadly, we’re all stuck indoors right now,” explains the band as they introduce the virtual concert. “And it seemed to us like we could all use a few songs now more than ever. We hope this brings good times into your homes, wherever they are.”

Real Estate’s Quarantour is powered by CALLEN, a creative agency based in Austin. “Collectively we wondered if there was a way to bring a live experience to fans when no one can leave their home,” said CALLEN founder and CCO Craig Allen in a statement. “Instead of having a set time when everyone must join a live stream, what if we could make this an on demand experience people could use whenever/wherever the feeling strikes? That’s what augmented reality affords us.”
