The popularity of celebrating late and great musicians via holograms continues to flourish. First, there was the somewhat eerie, digital debut of Tupac at Coachella in 2012 along Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. Then, Michael Jackson rocked the 2014 Billboard Music Awards with killer choreography and more. Recently, there’s been talk of other influential, high-ranking artists like The Notorious B.I.G and Whitney Houston possibly making posthumous appearances with the help of the developing technology, too.
Now, after the shocking passing of icon Prince, there’s buzz that fans and audiences alike may get the chance to relive his musical greatness live. Not even after a week of his death, Hologram USA said that if fans and the estate are interested, they’d be willing to produce a hologram of the artist.
“We are mourning the loss of Prince along with his millions of fans,” Hologram USA CEO Alki David said to The Wrap. “If at some point in the future his estate and the fans feel a hologram performance would be a fitting tribute, we’d be honored to celebrate the Sexy Motherf—er in every way.”
What are your thoughts? Too soon? Or would you be willing to see a posthumous Prince performance?
