  • Dio Returns As A Hologram

    Not sure how others feel about this but it doesn't sit comfortable with me at all...

    http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...stival-w433089

    I'm still a big concertgoer these days but if this is the future of live music where they'll just resurrect our dead musical heroes in holographic form, then count me out...Cant believe Wendy & Dio's former bandmates would stoop to this shit!



    [Edit] Apologies, this should've been posted in the side, solo & related bands thread.

    Morbid if you ask me, let the dead rest.

      If this catches on then I think each musician may have to
      designate in a will if they will allow this.
      Nobody I know is gonna take my rock & roll away from me.

        Not really sure about this...

        Sure it's kind of cool but it's also kind of wrong at the same time.

          Computerized god. It's a new religion!
          Do you hear the thunder raging in the sky?
          Premonition of a shattered world thatís gonna die.
          In the age of reason, how do we survive?
          The protocols of evil ravaging so many lives?

            See I don't agree. If I was at this show and Ronnie appeared in holo form, I'd have been shedding tears of joy and going crazy. I know it's not real, but it's the closest we'll ever get to having him back on stage and reliving some of the old Dio live magic. If it's done tastefully and respectfully I think this is a great way of keeping our heroes legacy alive.

              I think it serves to remind us all how dead he is. It's faithless, in a way... No Hologram=he's with us in spirit and maybe you can feel it. Hologram=he's dead, there's nothing we can do about it, so here's this Frankensteinian attempt to prop his digital ghost on stage and maybe that'll make you feel something.

                I'm sure it was designed to prompt an emotional response from the viewers. It was a successful.

                Don't try to reach me cause I'd tear up your mind.
                I've seen the future and I left it behind"

                  That same thought ran through my head.

                  That said, I'm interested in where this may go in the future. Will holograms serve a purpose beyond just being a visual wax dummy? At the moment of course people will be overdoing it left and right like everything else. It's cheap but then wives and children of rockers don't do much else anyway.

                    Cheap way to profit from someone's death.

                      Well to be fair, the Dio Disciples aren't profiting at all. They make zero money from the shows they do.

                        Not a fan at all of this band , but a really embarrassing and morbid way of paying tribute to Ronnie or someone else
                        What does the audience think during the clapping at the end of the song ? the musical performance of this tribute band or this visual effect show ?

                        I read somewhere they wanted to do the same with dead actors in future movies ... OK , we must all live into this digital world but IMO just a disrespectful circus.

                          So they're up there playing for free? How about Wendy?

                              They just closed Wacken in front of 75,000 people and you think they played for zero money? Let's not let our love for Ronnie cloud our judgment on this one. This is tacky & artificial and reeks of a new & inventive way to cash in on Ronnie.
