With more and more big stars shuffling off this mortal coil, companies are working with the estates of these performers to keep their legacies alive and their music producing revenue. Putting a hologram onstage is becoming a viable option. The next resurrection may involve Prince.
Tyka Nelson, Prince’s sister, says her late brother could be back performing as early as this October at the O2 Arena in London. The goal would be to replicate a series of 21 shows he did in London about ten years ago.
Here’s what she told iNews in the UK: “A hologram could be done as long as it is of excellent quality. It would have to allow the fans to experience Prince in the way he allowed us to experience his music.”
The holograms are coming. There’s no stopping them.
