Digital Domain, the company that created the famed Coachella Tupac hologram, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after its stock value dropped 94 percent. They had planned to create an Elvis hologram, and potentially Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix holograms at some point in the future, but it's not completely ruled out as an investment firm is looking into buying their production business. Would you ever pay to see a hologram performance of a musician who passed away? Or do you prefer to stick to live performances... with live musicians?

ROLLINGSTONE.COM reports:
The company that created the hologram of Tupac Shakur that performed at this year's Coachella festival has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after going public in November, CNN reports.

    Well, unless it's The Gorillaz. You barely see them anyway, and it would be cool to see their characters in hologram form. If you're not an act like that though, then no, waste of money!

    Their failure tells the whole story. People want to see people, not pictures of people, when they go to concerts. Otherwise watch a film.

    But only if the hologram was an element at the concert and not the main event. In short it would still have to be a live performance and not just some hologram show.

    It's not a performance, it's just an optical illusion. But for $1 I would probably watch it.

    I think this was a cool gimmick but I also think it's kind of tasteless and if I were the family of the dead celebrity I think I would feel like this was exploitation. Another thought is that one goes to a concert to see unscripted human performance and not some computer program.

    No, I wouldn't see the point of it. It would be like streaming it down the internet LIVE in the comfort of your own home - you go to a concert so you can brag that you've been within a certain amount of distance of that famous person you've gone to see.

    Since Tupac is no longer here it would feel good to his fans that they can still connect to him. To not only hear his music, but see a image of him. Most people wish they can see Janis Joplin, and John Lennon. I wish to see Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, etc.

    So we pay people to get fat and lazy? Isn't the entertainment job to entertain? Or is this a ploy for record companies to make more money on horrible stars by mass producing their image?

    Hell yes. Just think, we could digitally remaster songs from legends. Jimi Hendrix, Lennon, Biggie, etc. Bring them back as holograms for visual stimuli. The potential is enormous, and its wondrously futuristic. In a waning music industry, this would be a nice alternative.

    Holograms can only do so much. Humans have that... unexplainable element of entertainment... You'll never see these things happen with holograms.

    Hell ya... so long as the price is right. :) I won't attend most concerts today as the ticket prices are astronomical. But imagine that.. Elvis back on stage and performing his great songs again. And since there's no real performer, ticket prices are very reasonable. If not, then the holos can go the way, apparently, of the company.

    Don't get me wrong, it is a decent idea as sort of a tribute to a dead band member, but for a show like Tupac, it is just a big screening of a music video pretty much. A band called X Japan had a member die, and when they play shows, sometimes they have a hologram of the dead member, which is neat, but still sort of odd actually. All in all, it depends what show it is, but nobody I would want to go see is dead enough to warrant a hologram.
