Should there be a "Hologram" Tour?

I'd guess this is one of the easier questions to answer:

HELL NO

All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!

Of course the answer is no, and most feel that way, but eventually, holograms will be everywhere, and so will Prince holograms. Once this stuff is the norm, nobody will think twice about it.

Not having a Prince hologram will seem as silly to people as someone who doesn't have an iphone or use social media in todays world.

Who knows, maybe his hologram will even star in UTCM 2 Tricky's Revenge.

I hope it never happens, but the writing is on the wall for it to eventually be commonplace.

Id be happy with the release of concert on whatever format they deem worthy. I've been curious with the problems of a Fathom event. But way too soon for a hologram, the wound is too fresh

I do not care. I would not go so why would I care. I will say that hopefuly the family will not lose the estate somehow to someone who would not respect it. Which could happen. Lack of a will or trust could mean it all goes up for auction at some point.

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

It's not something I'm interested in personally, I'd rather just see a screening of a concert film. But I'm also not opposed to it being available to anyone who is interested and willing to pay to see it.

Now, how many who say “Hell no” would still go if it happened?

Are you saying that anyone who would go is not a real fan?

I liked the Michael-Jackson-hologram performance a few years ago (Slave To The Rhythm).
Maybe the question is not "if" but "when" there will be a Prince-hologram-tour.
I'd be there.
It's the future.

No, per Prince's wish. Prince was against this form of "entertaining." Just release box sets of live concerts please.

Only if it's the original Diamonds & Pearls CD booklet on stage with adequate zooms on the arena monitors for those of us in the upper levels.

Out of the question, I cant imagine myself to go hyper for something what isn't more than an advanced lightshow; i leave that up to the Tomorrowlanders.

NO!...BUT it's inevitable & financially very much needed. I think the video with a live NPG band as done at P. Park this year is a fair compromise & could work depending on the numbers.

it would be hard to pull off. He has been videotaped saying
“Holograms are evil and nobody will ever do that to him”. So even if one member of the estate was against it they could use that video to help their case.

NO. NO. NO. NO. NO.

As a fan, I would not support this. We all know how Prince felt about servitude to the industry. We’ve all heard, before he died, he told his sister he believed he had completed his life’s purpose. That said, a hologram tour would be like watching Prince trapped in Hell. Watching old videos and concerts is one thing. He consented to being filmed. But resurrecting him as hologram seems to disrespect an understanding of how he felt about the industry and his place here on Earth.

Someone above noted Prince said hologram tours are evil. Why is that? I suppose in the bigger picture (for us all), “hologram tours” assert / normalize a kind of ownership of people. I mean if you want to get all freaky about it, some believe we are all living in a hologram/simulation. With that in mind, what kind of message do “hologram tours” send to all of us?

Much like funerals are for the living, “Rest in Peace” is a principle for those that are left behind. Reminisce about Prince and explore his legacy of music, but let Prince’s memory Rest In Peace. Do not force him to work on a stage for an eternity.

lol i don't care, he wouldn't approve of endless reissues on vinyl or messing around with mixes either. You buy into it or you don't.

I’m just struggling to see the logic.

If you’d happily go to a concert movie then what’s the difference?

Suppose in the future we had the technology to take existing film and turn it into a hologram. Perhaps the Lovesexy Live released show.

Would you feel the same way if it was released in 3D?

Sounds like people being creeped out by new technology. Much like back in the day people being afraid of photographs because “it will trap my soul”

If on the other hand the issue is due to Prince’s stated wishes then fine but if that’s the case, I hope you don’t listen to “We can fuck” or had a right old whinge about 1999 Deluxe not having Extralovebale on it. And you better have never bought a bootleg or took a S sneaky photo at one his concerts.

Ok, that’s fine. It’s consistent but I’m betting that plenty of “Hell no”’S would or have seen SOTT on the big screen. I did last year and it was awesome.

I think a hologram tour would be nice for people who never got the chance to see Prince live.
