FUSE TV - Tupac Hologram Maker Wants to Resurrect Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson

Following the world's quizzical reaction to Tupac Shakur's hologram at Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's recent Coachella set, the company behind the hologram has hinted at resurrecting numerous other dead musicians, including Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Kurt Cobain and Elvis Presley.

Sanj Surati, Head of Music at Musion Technology, told NME that seeing Presley onstage with Justin Bieber "would be a cool thing." 

When asked about taking the Tupac hologram on tour, Surati said, "This is obviously a historic and exciting initiative that we're all witnessing currently, and it would make sense for them to bring it to Europe and maybe take it to the rest of the world."

Actually, there are a few reasons it wouldn't make sense, specifically the fact that you're kickstarting a whole weird, ancillary part of the music industry thriving on the ghosts of the past. Posthumously released albums are, of course, nothing new, but the slippery slope between a one-off Tupac performance and "Whitney Houston Performs Her Greatest Hits LIVE!" for $150 a ticket is a steep one. Headline writers: Prepare your "Live music" jokes.

What do you think? Would you pay to see a Kurt Cobain or Elvis Presley hologram concert? Should Musion just not half-ass it and put together an All-Star Corpse Band? Sound off in the comments below.
