Liberace lives! Hologram world tour announced

 
Behind the candelabra is apparently a hologram of Liberace, set to be resurrected for a world tour kicking off in Las Vegas by Hologram USA, the same company that gave us Tupac’s 2014 return at Coachella.
 
“This is a major step in the evolution of this medium for entertainment,” Hologram USA’s Alki David said in a press release. He envisions a show so “lifelike” that “the room will be filled with all of the great singer’s charm and charisma.”
 
“You’ll feel the warmth from his heart, the sparkle of his eye and the pure lightning from his fingertips,” added Jonathan Warren, chairman of the Liberace Foundation.
 
The Liberace Foundation is partnering with Hologram USA, loaning the company the footage and artifacts that will allow them to create the Liberace hologram.
 
A show featuring Amy Winehouse was previously proposed but was rejected by her father, who called the idea “utter rubbish.”
 
But that hasn’t stopped Hologram USA from planning a “slate of [further] celebrity resurrection projects” to be announced during the next 30 days.
