Samsung held a private late-night concert on March 26, to celebrate the release of the Samsung Galaxy S 6 and Galaxy S 6 edge smartphones at Best Buy Theater in NYC. The event featured a live performance by Bad Boy/Atlantic Records recording artist Janelle Monae, with an opening set by Brendan Fallis exclusively for Samsung device users.
Fans were able to snag tickets by bringing their Samsung mobiles to the flagship store in SoHo, but those who missed the show can view the concert through Samsung’s Milk Video – a personalized video discovery app – and Samsung Owner’s Hub. Additionally, the concert was filmed for Samsung’s Milk VR – a new service that provides 360-degree immersive videos to anyone using a Gear VR virtual-reality headset.
Galaxy users will be able to pre-order the new phones beginning on March 27, with a nationwide release on April 10.
Tune in to a clip of Janelle Monae in action dressed up with embellished coats as she ran through crowd favorites including “Electric Lady,” “Queen” and “Tightrope.” Janelle also surprised the crowd with James Brown’s hit “I Feel Good,” leading in to a Jackson Five medley.
