On Thursday, Facebook introduced a new feature allowing people to post 360-degree photos and panoramic pics on the site, and Paul McCartney helped celebrate the launch by sharing his own 360-degree pic. The image, taken at Sir Paul’s May 15 concert in Córdoba, Argentina, shows the rock legend and his band onstage and can be maneuvered to see the audience, the stage lights, the photographers’ pit and more.
The pic is the first of a series of 360-degree photos McCartney is planning to post on Facebook from his One on One tour using the hashtag #OneOnOne360. Paul’s reps are encouraging fans who attend the shows to post their own 360-degree images from the events on the website.
In other news, McCartney recently premiered a new installment of his recently launched virtual-reality documentary series Pure McCartney VR promoting his new Pure McCartney compilation, which gets its release on Friday, June 10. The new 360-degree video focuses on Paul’s 2013 song “Early Days,” and features McCartney in his home studio discussing various memories from his younger years that helped inspire the tune.
The Pure McCartney VR videos can be viewed online at JauntVR.com and McCartney’s official YouTube channel, and by using the Jaunt VR app via Apple and Android devices, Oculus Rift, Desktop 360 and other platforms.
The Pure McCartney album is a career-spanning compilation of the rock legend’s solo work that’s available as a four-CD set, a four-LP vinyl package, and a two-CD collection.
