Brooklyn, New York rapper Theophilus London is at the control of fans. The Warner Brothers Records artist who recently released Times Are Weird These Days, is the subject of Special Engagements, a new interactive concert series launched by Dell and Intel. Special Engagements allows fans to affect an artist’s performance in real time, during a concert.
To honor its inception, Special Engagements will take tuned-in music devotees to seven unexpected global locations for unique events featuring several artists from different genres. The series kicks off August 20 in Austin, Texas at the famed Lustre Pearl with Theophilus London and host Telli from Ninjasonik. Following the inaugural Engagement, the series will travel to the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Brazil and France before returning to the United States.
For the Austin debut, fans will determine which exclusive remix Theophilus London debuts during his set; send in visual interpretations of his album to accompany the performance; submit for shout-outs; and even decide the shirt he wears on stage. Leading up to the debut event in Austin, they will determine factors of the performance via polling widgets, Twitter and Facebook.
