Years before the towering "hologram" of Tupac Shakur sat in with Dr. Dre a few weeks ago at Coachella, there was "Elvis in Concert '97" at the Pyramid, with The King checking in from beyond via massive video screen to perform with former sidemen and the Memphis Symphony Orchestra on the 20th anniversary of his death. That concert launched a subsequent tour as well as a similar 25th anniversary show in 2002 at the Pyramid. Now the company behind the Tupac stunt is considering other celebrities to bring back larger than life. From NME:
From Elvis Presley and Jimi Hendrix right through to Michael Jackson and even Whitney Houston - who only passed away in February - the eggheads from Musion Technology Ltd claim they've got a number of dead stars in their sights.Yes, Justin Bieber. With Elvis. As someone on Fark commented in linking to MTV's story:
Speaking to NME, Head of Music at the firm Sanj Surati said that seeing Elvis onstage with Justin Bieber "would be a cool thing".
