I'm not what you would call a post-Digital Underground Tupac fan, but I have to admit that was pretty sweet.

I've heard on the news that on-stage hologram effect cost 10 mil to produce.

I read somewhere that Snoop was looking to take "Tupac" on tour with him.  I wonder if it's feasible.

Oh, man...  *whew* that would be a long list. Off the top o' my head, maybe this could be the opportunity to bring back live musicianship combined with this technology. It would be something like the holodeck scene in "Star Trek: First Contact".

For instance, imagine a stage show where live musicians are playing instrumentals to Billie Holiday's  "Cheek To Cheek" in a darkened area.



A spotlight hits center stage. Suddenly Billie Holidays walks into the bright circle and starts to sing. 




If that stunt can be pulled off, then you'd know that this stage hologram concept  is here to stay and can be improved on.

Id like to see some old acts like Otis Redding, Sammy Davis, Stevie Wonder oh and the Temptations.  Im sure acts like Michael Jackson, Elvis, Jimmy Hendrix, and probably the Doors would sell well on stage.

Hell, get Paul and Ringo together with a little technology and have the Beatles tour.

Those would certainly be sold out concerts, imo.
