They say you can’t go home again, but that is exactly what Jack Harlow does in the trailer for his upcoming concert special No Place Like Home: A VR Concert. The preview opens with Harlow enshrouded in fog on a stage accompanied by his 2023 Jackman track “Ambitious,” in which the rapper reminisces about being a “peach fuzz” faced teen with huge dreams… many of which have come true.
The-rags-to-riches story reaches it apotheosis in the trailer, as Harlow confidently walks the stage in an all-black leather outfit in front of an adoring hometown crowd. The concert special will premiere on Thursday (Jan. 4) at 8 p.m. ET through Meta Horizon Worlds, which promises an immersive VR experience that will give fans a “front-row seat at an incredible, intimate concert,” as well as behind-the-scenes footage from the KY gigs.
The Live Nation-produced Bluegrass state tour marked the third annual hometown run for Harlow, featuring a six-show mini-tour that kicked off on Nov. 24 at Owensboro Sports Center in Owensboro, KY and wrapping up at Rupp Arena in Lexington on Dec. 3 after hitting Pikeville, Covington, Murray and Bowling Green. The string of gigs came three months after Harlow was honored with a “Hometown Heroes” banner in his hometown of Louisville.
After its premiere, No Place Like Home will be available to replay on Meta Horizon Worlds through Jan. 25. Harlow released his third studio album, Jackman, in April, spawning the global hit “Lovin’ On Me,” which rode the top of the U.K. charts in late 2023 on the way to becoming the MC’s third Hot 100 No. 1.
