R&b Star Jackie Wilson Will Be Brought Back To Life In Hologram Form For A U.s. Tour In 2017.
The Reet Petite singer, who died in 1984, is the latest star to return to the stage as a hologram following previously announced tours starring late singers Whitney Houston, Buddy Holly and Dean Martin.
Hologram USA, owners of the cutting edge technology, teamed up with Wilson's family to work on the tour, which will stop at major U.S. cities and feature Wilson's high-energy performance style and hits including (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher.
His widow Harlean tells USA Today, "It is almost like he is still here with us and bringing his music alive for all his fans to enjoy once again."
Hologram USA's chief executive Alki David adds in a statement, "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 died aged 49 from complications of pneumonia.
