The new Guitar Hero Live will let players live out a rock star fantasy, playing to real crowds that react to your performance. Ahead of the European launch of Guitar Hero Live on 23rd October, Activision announced an integrated tour partnership with Imagine Dragons, taking Guitar Hero Live on the road during the band’s European “Smoke + Mirrors” tour.

Fans of the band will be able to pick up the new six-button Guitar Hero controller and experience the thrill of performing live, playing Imagine Dragon’s award winning track “Demons” in the game.

Dan Reynolds, lead singer commented, “We really didn’t feel like doing actual rehearsals for our upcoming European tour, so it was fortunate timing that we could practice via Guitar Hero Live instead. Our European fans will definitely suffer as a result, but it was a lot less work.”

Wayne Sermon, guitarist, added, “In all seriousness, we’re all gamers, so we’re excited to let our fans experience our music in a new way through the game and especially to realise just how difficult it is for me to play my own guitar parts when you have a crowd watching you”.

Guitar Hero Live will be available on 23rd October on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Wii U console and select mobile devices.
