Just as Michael Jackson’s This Is It shows planned to do before the singer’s untimely death in 2009, Morgan Page will be using the same 3-D technology to treat fans at his concerts. But this time, there’s going to be spaceships and canyons, and according to Page, it’ll make “you feel like you’re flying.”
“You feel like it’s almost like when you go to an IMAX movie and you feel like you’re flying or like you’re in a helicopter and you’ve got that sense of movement going on,” the DJ told MTV News. “The craziest thing about it is that, after the show, you just feel, you just totally forget where you are, and that’s exactly what I want to have.”
Typically used in movie theaters for big blockbuster films, this technology in not the traditional red and green type of 3-D. From the front to the back of the room, Morgan Page Presents Tour concertgoers will wear polarized glasses, experiencing the EDM show in a new way.
Trust me – your brain will be plenty occupied at #MPP3D – no need for drugs, gloving, or twerking – but the choice is yours ;)

“It’s going to be super immersive 3-D visuals where you feel like you’re actually in the show,” said Page, who’s bringing along Audien, Walden, Beltek, Topher Jones, Project 46 and Maor Levi for his trek across Canada and the U.S. “The system is basically going to take the fans, the viewers, through a variety of landscapes. It’s a lot of actual real environments, so you know it’s sort of like space-themed stuff. There’s space, there’s terrain, there’s canyons, there’s a lot of flyover stuff.”
Since Page is the first DJ to use the 3D Live Entertainment technology since Michael Jackson himself, will there be any odes to King of Pop during his show?
“It’s mainly just my tracks and other sort of current big songs that I love, but you know, I think it would make him proud,” Page said. The 3-D extravaganza has gotten the thumbs-up from filmmaker James Cameron, who stopped by rehearsals on Thursday, Page posted on Instagram.
In the end, Page said he wanted his more than 50-date tour to create a whole new environment for his fans, and it even might change the game for his music.
“I want to have this escapism where you’re so in the zone with the show when it ends you kind of pinch yourself where you don’t realize where you’re at,” he said. “It’s an ambitious thing. I want there to be the energy of a festival, but also sort of the emotional journey of an IMAX movie.
“And I hope this is going to be something that’s a reoccurring theme in all my tours from now on. It may even change the way I make music.”
