We know that already a few artists have shown an interest in performing in space and while that’s not entirely possible yet, it’s not stopping others trying other locations.

On a new flight from London to Atlanta in the US, the inaugural flight of Virgin Atlantic’s new 787 aircraft will feature performances from a handful of artists.

Rudimental, who have performed at a number of festivals up and down the UK this summer – including that Glastonbury performance they had to cut short will perform high in the clouds.

The show is the first ever live streamed gig to take place over the Atlantic Ocean and will take place on the 23rd of October.

Rudimental’s Amir Amor spoke about the whole experience and couldn’t hide his excitement and said they were really looking forward to it.

“We are all buzzing for this gig. We have played some pretty mental shows over the past two years but I think this is going to be a memorable one!”

Fans of Rudimental are also being offered a chance to fly on the new aircraft by way of a competition on their Twitter page and clicking the link which will take you to the contest.

Gorgon City will also perform on the special flight

Rudimental aren’t the only act set to perform on the new aircraft as Gorgon City have also been confirmed as the plane travels over the Atlantic Ocean.

Gorgon City’s Kyle Gibbon commented and spoke about how close they are to Rudimental after supporting them in the UK and Australia.

“I can’t wait to play back-to-back with them on the flight and I think we are all going to bring a few specials to the mix!” he added.

Would you pay to be on this flight or are you not the best passenger while flying? It’s an interesting concept for sure and we’re sure the live stream will be very popular on the day.
