Whitney Houston, Billie Holiday, Dean Martin… and now, Jackie Wilson. The R&B pioneer is the latest musical legend to receive the hologram treatment, for a tour that will kick off sometime in 2017.

According to Billboard, the stage show will be co-produced by FilmOn TV Networks and distributed on the Web through Hologram USA, the company behind the hologram takeover of our fragile culture, will also helm the Wilson spectacular.

Hologram USA CEO Aiki David says, “Everything you expect from an exciting ‘rock star’ stage show was invented by Jackie Wilson: the leaps, spins and back-flips, not to mention his amazing four-octave range.”

Wilson collected a slew of hits in the 1960s, including “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher,” “Lonely Teardrops” and “You Better Know It.” A GRAMMY winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Wilson passed away in 1984.
