Due to several factors, such as bad sound quality or being too far from the artist inside the live house, the audience feels “disconnected” from the live show and ends up feeling that the communication between them and the artist is non-existent. Although previous work on enhancing the live show experience has been done during the past 10 years, a potential environment which puts a solution to the issue mentioned above has yet to be found. Therefore, in the present research, we will take a look at the mechanism of a live show and we will focus on the interaction that presently occurs between both parties. Finally, the design of a new interface that enables both the artist and the audience to enjoy and perform a bilateral communication will be discussed and put into practice by creating a prototype and testing it in a real concert.
