As creepy as the idea sounds, having dead celebrities appear as a hologram and perform on stage for an audience is a rapidly growing thing apparently.
Prince is the newest celebrity to be brought into the holographing business. So many of his fans never had the opportunity to see or hear him live, and Hologram USA, the company responsible for many of the celebrity holograms you’ve heard about, is telling media outlets they are not against the idea of bringing Prince back to the stage.
Hologram USA CEO Alki David told 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.”
Prince would join the long list of celebrities that are in the works or has previously been turning into a hologram; Biggie, Tupac, Selena, and Billy Holliday are among the names included.
Prince has been one of the hottest topics in the entertainment industry after the icon passed away April 21 of this year.
