There’s been a disturbance in the music world force. I pay an exorbitant ticket price, parking fees and "sucker" fees to see a live concert, but instead of real people performing, I get a hologram. As somebody who loves holograms, it saddens me to have to say this: using holograms to raise the dead or replace living musicians is total (real life) bulls*ht. Here are 7 bizarre hologram concerts: 

 

Vocaloid – “Words of Love”

In Japan, hologram concerts are all anyone ever sees anymore.

 

Gorillaz & Madonna – Feel Good Inc. / Hung Up

Madonna’s like, “pay attention to me! Not the holograms! Me!”

 

Mariah Carey in Poland

It’s not like she’s dead or a cartoon character – why won’t she just perform in Poland?

 

Black Eyed Peas – “Time of My Life”

Tetris!

 

Brad Paisley & Virtual Carrie Underwood – “Remind Me”

If there was one genre I’d have more respect for if it took a stand against holograms, it’d be country. Ohhhh weeeeeeell.

 

Tails from Sonic The Hedgehog – “Tails Tails Night Fever”

So this is what he does between Olympic games.

 

2pac and Dancing Baby at Coachella 2012

2pac finally puts aside his beef with the Notorious B.A.B.Y.
