Something Tupac and Patsy Cline Share in Common
First Tupac joined Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg on stage at Coachella 2012, and now Patsy Cline is hitting the stage once again — both of them as holograms.
According to Rolling Stone, “the Patsy Cline project may prove to be one of [Hologram USA]’s longest holographic shows.” As Jim pointed out in his post Onstage Technology Can Do More Than Just Raise the Dead, we’re just starting to see the exciting possibilities of the holographic experience. Jim wrote:
“It’s not just bringing back the dead but using this kind of technology to project anything and everything you can think of onto a stage to enhance a performance. Technology, in my view, is still dramatically underused when it comes to creating drama and engagement onstage. Someone like Natasha Tsakos does things with technology that should be easy for producers in theater, concerts or wherever to do, but we still aren’t seeing it.
But it will come.”
