Weekly survey: Would you attend a high-tech concert featuring just avatars?

The big news over the last couple of weeks has been the return of ABBA with both new music and a special series of concerts performances. However, ABBA themselves will not be performing. They’ve been digitized into high-tech avatars, tech that’s beyond holograms. ABBA will be able to stay at home counting the money as their avatars do all the work.

This is destined to be The Next Big Thing in concerts. But I’m wondering if you’re at all interested? Here are your choices in this week’s poll.

Alan Cross

is an internationally known broadcaster, interviewer, writer, consultant, blogger and speaker. In his 30+ years in the music business, Alan has interviewed the biggest names in rock, from David Bowie and U2 to Pearl Jam and the Foo Fighters. He’s also known as a musicologist and documentarian through programs like The Ongoing History of New Music.

    I’m seeing this too late to vote in the poll, but there’s no way I would ever go anywhere near one of these shows. The whole concept sounds super lame and like a total ripoff. If I’m going to watch a live show that isn’t a live show, why wouldn’t I just stay at home and watch a concert film? I don’t have to spend a fortune on tickets or deal with traffic, plus the drinks and snacks are a lot cheaper. You know the old saying about fools and their money. That’s exactly what this is.
