Three concerts will be live-streamed from Tennessee into high-traffic areas in Chicago later this month in what promoters are calling "the first long-distance concert of its kind."

Performers in three Tennessee cities and the audience in Chicago will be able to see each other and interact thanks to a 360-degree, panoramic camera angle, according to the Tennessee Department of Tourism Development.

Citizen Cope will perform live May 23 from the Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis. Jason Isbell will perform live May 24 from Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame. Ashley Monroe will perform May 25 at the Tennessee Theatre in her hometown, Knoxville.

The concerts are part of a tourism campaign, "The Soundtrack of America: Made in Tennessee." Chicago is one of Tennessee's top tourism markets.
