We listen to the stars on record/mp3 etc and they are not there so why not see them when they are not there?

When I saw Zappa at Knebworth in 1979 he stayed to the back of the stage so being close to the front meant all I saw for most of the gig was his head. The hologram would have been more revealing.

Having said that - I wouldn't rush to see a hologram gig. Great technology but a bit too weird.

Why not?
Price.

We pay a relatively small price for an audio recording that we can listen to an unlimited number of times in the comfort of our homes/cars etc.

But we must pay a relatively huge price for a ticket, then have to travel to a hologram "concert" which, once over, is never to be enjoyed after that one event.

That's a fair point but we pay stupid money for any concert that once over is never to be enjoyed again.

Actually, I have tickets to see the Eagles in a few weeks for what has cost me a small fortune they don't need and I can hardly afford but to me it's worth it.

But you do have me thinking, do I view Deacon Frey as a hologram of his dad or a tribute to his dad? Either way I'm sure I will enjoy and come away with priceless memories - and that's what you probably won't get from a hologram gig.

Interesting technology.
For me not a very interesting application, and something I doubt I would spend time doing.

If I had a hologram of myself, he might be interested in this...
