Been hearing a lot of talk online and on the news since the end of last year about a hologram of Roy Orbison touring the UK in 2018, and also rumored to be an act at Glastonbury in 2019. I personally think that this is very cool that Roy was chosen to be recreated in the form of a hologram, even though it is not the first time something like that has happened in recent years, and some fans are against the idea.

What are your thoughts on this and which deceased musicians (apart from John and George of course) would you like to see recreated as a hologram?

This Roy Orbison hologram is pretty cool, and it will give people like me the opportunity to see Roy who hadn't been around when he was in his prime/preforming.

 

But, with holograms you really have to be careful on which artist you choose to bring back. I know that Linkin Park has stated that they have refused to have Chester as a hologram, and i know many fans of Nirvana are against the idea of Kurt Cobain as a hologram.

 

As for me, i wouldn't mind seeing Freddie Mercury as a hologram.

That seems like a pretty groovy idea, especially since a lot of my favourite musicians have moved on to their next life. I would pay good money to see a Johnny Cash hologram.

I'm sure the venues love holograms too. You don't have to accommodate them. Hologram Roy Orbison has no backstage rider.

The guy they need to be holograming is Hendrix. Hell, just recreate Monterey with Holograms. Don’t try to be creative with it, just give the people what they want!

Hologramming has always struck me as a really disturbing idea. That being said, there's something next-level about the notion of doing guys who were never filmed or even photographed. (Holo-Beethoven!) 

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

What's the point? A 3D film without the glasses.

Really, this type of thing, it's like colourising Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, or early Beatles. There might be a moment of "Ooo!" to begin with, but it's really the Emperor's New Clothes.

There are interesting things starting to be done with holograms that will influence art. Just a few weeks ago I was watching something on the BBC about a woman who'd survived the holocaust spending days being asked every question that could be thought of as she was captured as a hologram. That is now going around schools, with the hologram responding to the questions asked by children. An interactive experience which is never the same.

Someday, a musician will create an inactive piece like that, but until then you're just watching a dressed-up piece of old footage.

I see your point, but one of the reasons I would like a hologram is because you can have a concert, and actually be there, listening to the person's music instead of just watching old videos on The Youtub.

I think it's cool. Would be interesting having the artist zap around the stadium to interact with the audience.

Or a holgram band made with different artists holograms like Zappa's, Lennon's, Brian Jones's and Keith Moon's all playing together.

How far can this go, could there be a Joe!Hologram that runs the forum in the year 2525?

I am a little bit on the fence about hologram concerts. I do like the idea of creating an experience of seeing a person who is no longer with us but I also find seeing a hologram a little bit creepy plus when I go to a concert I enjoy seeing the band/artist perform and I feel like you don't get that with a  hologram show but to be fair I have never seen a hologram show in person but I am a big fan of the big O so maybe I will go see the Roy Orbison Hologram show when it tours Australia. 

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.
