After the overwhelming (surprised? horrified?) response to the appearance of Tupac Shakur’s hologram during Snoop Dogg’s Coachella set, promoters are now talking about a Tupac hologram tour. Of course they are.
Would you pay to see an entire concert performed by a computer-generated hologram of Tupac? If not, what artist would you pay $50 to see perform as a hologram? Michael Jackson? Whitney Houston? A resurrected Sublime? A reunited Led Zeppelin?
As much as I regret never seeing Miles Davis live, I’m not going to pay $75 to watch M Dewey’s hologram turn its back to me on stage, but I’d have to think about those Jimi Hendrix hologram tickets, especially if they could make him burn a real Fender Strat on stage.
Whose hologram would you pay to see?
