Patsy Cline is getting a hologram
Tupac made headlines in 2012 when a hologram version of the late rapper performed at that year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, and now another famous musician will get the same treatment. Hologram USA, the same company that made the Tupac hologram, announced that a Patsy Cline hologram is in the works.
“We chose Patsy as our first country hologram project, and our first female hologram project, for a reason,” Hologram USA CEO Alki David said in a statement. “She was a pioneer who influenced generations of singers around the globe.”
Cline is known for songs including “Walkin’ After Midnight” and “I Fall to Pieces,” and was the first woman inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame 10 years after her death. (She died in a plane crash in 1963.)
Although Tupac’s hologram shared the stage with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre at Coachella, Cline’s is getting her own “full concert performance.” “We are very glad to share Patsy and her music with the new technology and format and honored by Hologram USA’s choice to have her as the first,” Cline’s husband, Charles Dick, said in a statement. “I am sure her fans, old and new, will be thrilled.”
