The creators of the Tupac hologram that wowed audiences at Coachella have recently revealed that they have plans to bring back a range of iconic singers from the grave.
The brains behind Musion Technology have spoken out, claiming that they are looking into touring holograms of Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson and even Whitney Houston- who only passed away in February (2012).
Speaking to NME, Head of Music at the firm Sanj Surati also talked about bringing Elvis Presley to perform onstage with Justin Bieber, saying, "that would be a cool thing."
When asked about who else they would look into resurrecting for tours he replied, "Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, oh and Michael Jackson would be the ultimate one. Maybe even Whitney Houston."
Surati's comments come after reports earlier this week that suggest that a hologram of Michael Jackson could tour alongside his brothers in the Jackson 5.
Michael's brother Jackie called the idea "wonderful", but revealed that it has already been shot down two years earlier.
Meanwhile Dr Dre has disappointed fans by stating that the Tupac hologram was "strictly for Coachella", but Surati argues that it would make sense to take the hologram on tour.
He 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."
What do you think? Would you pay to see a hologram performance?
