The technology of the future is bringing back the quintessential “King of Cool.” Dean Martin will take the stage in 2016 thanks to Hologram USA, the company that produces lifelike hologram performances (ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel was “beamed” to the Country Music Awards in Nashville last year).

Martin's national tour will kick off in Las Vegas. Co-produced by FilmOn TV Networks, the performances will be distributed online via FilmOn.com.

“A new generation is about to be blown away by the extraordinary presence of Dean Martin,” said Hologram USA CEO Alki David in a press release. “He owned Vegas like no other entertainer, and is the definition of elegance and cool. It’s a distinct pleasure to work with Laura Lizer and the estate to ensure we deliver Dean Martin with the utmost authenticity.” 

Along with this charismatic Rat Pack vet, Hologram USA and FilmOn TV are also creating hologram shows with the estates of Billie Holiday, Bing Crosby, Whitney Houston and many more.
