Tupac Hologram Headlines Coachella Festival

One of the performance highlights at Coachella this past weekend was 41-year-old rapper Tupac, who walked around the stage, bantered with Snoop Dogg, sung some oldies, and terrified many. Is this soon to become a creepy new standard, with death no longer a barrier to entertainers’ personal appearances and touring careers? What will be your hologram’s greatest accomplishments?

    This is great! As this technology improves, we’re all gonna be able to go see any musician (at any stage in their career) whenever we want! Hendrix! The Beatles! Joy Division! The Sex Pistols! Holographic young Stones tickets will start outselling actual Stones tickets! This is probably the closest I could ever conceivably come to living my years-running daydream of getting a time machine just so I could go to post-punk shows in the early 80s and psych shows in the 60s.

    Some hackers should create a virtual 2pac assassin to suddenly bust onto the performance and blow 2pac away.

    This is nothing new.

    Over a decade ago, the wonders of technology allowed Natalie Cole to sing a duet with her dead dad

    So, who owns the rights to Tupac’s hologram?  In the future, who owns all the likenesses to the dead stars?  Are we going to see 100years+ rights to hologram use after a musician’s death?  And what technological liberties will we have to give up to make sure only the approved corporations get to press play on the projectors?
