More Dead Celebrities To Return To Stage
Remember the day you learnt about death?
Maybe you were a child, racing home from school to watch ‘Rocket Power’ and play with your dog Patches, only to walk through the door and find your parents in the kitchen visibly upset. You ask what happened, Dad wipes away a tear, and gets down on his knee. Grandma had gone to heaven. You say “Is she ever coming back?” And your dad replies “I’m afraid not, she’s dead.”
Well, your Dad was stupid. Of course dead people can come back.
Since the creepy resurrection of Tupac earlier this year at California’s Coachella festival, the world went insane for the hologram.
People demanded a faux Tupac tour, rumours circulated, and people waved money in the air.
Dr. Dre made himself clear, however, responding to offers with “It was strictly for Coachella, get it right. I want to get rid of all the rumours out there. This was not done for a tour.”
Well, to fill the void that we all have of seeing a deceased person walk around onstage while we question our morals, Doors manager Jeff Jampol sat down with Billboard to share his future ideas for a holographic Doors show.
“I want lasers, lights, high-quality sound, vibrations and projected imagery,” said Jampol.
He went onto say, “Hopefully, Jim Morrison will be able to walk right up to you, look you in the eye, sing right at you and then turn around and walk away.”
If that doesn’t sound traumatising in the slightest, then it’s time to get excited.
In the wake of this news, a Jimi Hendrix hologram show is also in its initial stages, after just receiving the green light from Jim’s sister, Janie Hendrix.
“For us, of course, it’s about keeping Jimi authentically correct. There are no absolutes at this point,” she said.
London-based Musion Company is said to be working on the project.
And this isn’t the last of the planned hologram shows set to sweep the world soon.
Marilyn Monroe will flirt from beyond the grave; an Elvis Presley show is in its planning stages; Freddy Mercury will now be digitally involved in the Queen tribute show We Will Rock You; TLC are including Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopez in their stage show; the completely normal Jackson family are kicking around the idea of adding Michael back to the Jackson 5; and Notorious B.I.G is in the talks to return (which is bad news for the Tupac hologram)… It seems like there’s no limit to bringing back the dead.
See ya soon Grandma.
