10 Hologram Tours We'd Love To See

Tupac's holographic appearance at Coachella got the ball rolling;
can these legends be far behind?

Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley

The Nirvana-Alice in Chains Reunion Tour: Channel the Flannel

Why we'd pay to see this: We aren't the only ones who want to see Nirvana again. But what better way to relive youth than strapping on a pair of Docs for the resurrection of these two greats? Alice in Chains has managed to carry on in the 21st century with William DuVall doing an admirable job in Staley's place, but it'll take technological wizardry to fulfill our dream of seeing Nirvana on stage again.

Biggest holographic challenge: Getting the unwashed, messy hair just right (and getting Courtney Love, Dave Grohl, and Krist Novoselic on speaking terms long enough to make it happen).

The Beatles

The British Zombie Invasion Tour

Why we'd pay to see this: For those who never got the chance to see the Fab Four together in the flesh and for those who are sick of this generation's boy bands, a second coming is in order.

Biggest holographic challenge: Caring for elderly fans when they faint.


The Long Live the Queen Tour

Why we'd pay to see this: Because neither Paul Rodgers nor any American Idol finalist can match Freddie Mercury's incredible vocals.

Biggest holographic challenge: Capturing the flamboyance of Mercury's wardrobe accurately.

Biggie & Tupac

Notorious P.A.C. Tour

Why we'd pay to see this: The union of East Coast and West Coast rap? Not even Kanye would interrupt this.

Biggest holographic challenge: Fitting both entourages on stage.

The Who

The Over the Moon Tour

Why we'd pay to see this: Not only was Keith Moon one of the greatest drummers in history, but so far we've only seen singers brought back to ''life.'' It's time for the drums to get a little love.

Biggest holographic challenge: Scheduling conflicts — the Olympics want Moon's hologram, too.

Joe Strummer, Sid Vicious,
and Dee Dee, Johnny, and Joey Ramone

The Clash, Sex Pistols, and Ramones Classic Punk Tour: Never Mind the Hollocks

Why we'd pay to see this: Likelihood that a hologram of Sid Vicious could play bass better than the real one.

Biggest holographic challenge: Likelihood that Joe Strummer would unionize his fellow dead rock star holograms.

Wu Tang Clan with Ol' Dirty Bastard

The Game of Death Tour
(Get it? The Bruce Lee movie they finished after Bruce Lee was dead? Get it?)

Why we'd pay to see this: The eccentric collective had a unique niche in the '90s hip-hop scene. Who wouldn't want to see them together again?

Biggest holographic challenge: Finding room for every one of Ol' Dirty Bastard's personas. Then again, start getting excited for the rap showdown between ODB, Big Baby Jesus, Dirt McGirt. It'll be just like when Superman fought Superboy!

Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead

The Dead and Loving It Tour

Why we'd pay to see this: Wait, we have to pay? That's not cool, man.

Biggest holographic challenge: Convincing fans that they are in fact experiencing a hologram-enhanced show and not an acid flashback.

The Doors

The Break on Through to the Other Side Tour

Why we'd pay to see this: These days, Val Kilmer no longer makes a passable Jim Morrison.

Biggest holographic challenge: People are strange, but holograms are stranger — and they can't improvise like the real Morrison.

Axl Rose and the original Guns N' Roses

The Using an Illusion Tour

Why we'd pay to see this: Because it'd be freaking awesome, that's why. And if Axl insists on staying ''divorced'' from the people who helped make him a star — screw it. Hologram his ass.

Biggest holographic challenge: Making that Axl slither look as sexy-creepy as it did 20 years ago. And keeping the living Axl's army of lawyers from crushing our dreams of seeing it.

I give you a grade of A+. :)

I wouldn't want to see any of these.

Also the Beatles example would be super weird if it was young John and George with current Ringo and Paul.
anemoneoflight 23rd-Apr-2012 03:26 am (UTC)
A Beatles reunion via holograms would be so awkward. How do you interact with them? And John had arguably the most stage presence, so I don't know how that would translate. I just imagine Paul and Ringo would leave the whole thing feeling either super scared, confused and/or old. Or all three.
hera_bearrra 23rd-Apr-2012 03:07 am (UTC)
This is getting weird

I am sad that TLC was not listed
couturelights 23rd-Apr-2012 03:07 am (UTC)
did anyone else think the hologram was kinda weird or creepy..?
babycnessa 23rd-Apr-2012 03:08 am (UTC)
I find it very creepy, tbh.
rivadavia 23rd-Apr-2012 03:09 am (UTC)
it's so creepy
phillymademe 23rd-Apr-2012 03:09 am (UTC)

I think it's pretty creepy
goldenguess 23rd-Apr-2012 03:20 am (UTC)

mario_06 23rd-Apr-2012 03:20 am (UTC)
ayajedi 23rd-Apr-2012 03:36 am (UTC)
I found it creepy, weird and in poor taste
ohsnapohsnap 23rd-Apr-2012 04:35 am (UTC)
very very creepy
menorahmajora 23rd-Apr-2012 04:46 am (UTC)
creepy, tacky, cheesy and tired already(at least jokes about it). I sincerely hope this doen't become an actual thing.
jearsforqueers 23rd-Apr-2012 04:51 am (UTC)
well.. i was drunk when i saw the tupac one and i really thought we all got punk'd and he was coming out of hiding for the ultimate LOL U GOT PLAYED charade.

but yeah.. this is really creepy.
shining_starsxx 23rd-Apr-2012 05:58 am (UTC)
It was creepy and unnecessary tbh
sasandwich 23rd-Apr-2012 03:07 am (UTC)
Here for Queen. There would not be a flaw in sight.
layla618 23rd-Apr-2012 05:16 am (UTC)

Also here for The Who.

backincharge 23rd-Apr-2012 03:08 am (UTC)
Though the Queen one would be pretty awesome.
menorahmajora 23rd-Apr-2012 04:48 am (UTC)
It would be in poor taste imo, like still-calling-it-Queen-without-Freddie levels of tacky. I think he deserves better than both.

backincharge 23rd-Apr-2012 03:08 am (UTC)
Kurt was the first one suggested. :X
fading_october 23rd-Apr-2012 03:25 am (UTC)
I thought janis would have been in the post. no love for her :(
mots_inutiles 23rd-Apr-2012 05:03 am (UTC)
I might want to see Otis Redding, but I might burst out in tears.
shania_cares 23rd-Apr-2012 05:24 am (UTC)
Janis was the first one I thought of tbh.
harderthanalist 23rd-Apr-2012 11:31 pm (UTC)
I would do anything to see MJ !
dmclaire 23rd-Apr-2012 03:08 am (UTC)
I love The Doors but this hologram stuff is too weird for me
pink_dog 23rd-Apr-2012 05:04 pm (UTC)
I think The Doors might be the only one that it could be kind of appropriate for...idk, it just seems like Jim would find it cool. Well, he'd either be totally into it or repulsed by it with every fiber of his being. One or the other--no middle ground, I don't think.
_mistaker_ 23rd-Apr-2012 03:08 am (UTC)
Where the hell is michael ?
allstarzs 23rd-Apr-2012 03:08 am (UTC)
No Jimi Hendrix? Flop list.
joliefoliepolie 23rd-Apr-2012 03:36 am (UTC)
I actually came into this post thinking they SHOULDN'T have put Jimi on the list. A lot of his brilliance was the fluidity of how he played the guitar. I feel like having such a structured set that a hologram performance mandates would take away from the brilliance of what it would have been like to see him play live.
But regardless of my opinions of a hologram Jimi, he still remains on the top of my list of performers I'd give my right arm for the chance to go back in time and watch.
ryeona 23rd-Apr-2012 03:08 am (UTC)
No to all of this. Nothing beats the real thing.
soheavy 23rd-Apr-2012 03:08 am (UTC)
No thank you. It's creepy as hell.
rivadavia 23rd-Apr-2012 03:08 am (UTC)
nooooo holograms freak me out
