Liberace will be returning to the glitz and glamor of Las Vegas sometime this year, more than 25 years after his death.
The famed singer’s homecoming to the city where he originally made a name for himself will come in the form of a cutting edge “hologram” developed by Hologram USA.
This is not the same company that brought Michael Jackson to the Billboard Music Awards last year and Tupac Shakur to Coachella in 2012 — those were created by Pulse Evolution, formerly Digital Domain.
A rep for Hologram USA said their Liberace hologram will have a noticeable difference in the technology from those “virtual human beings” and will be 3D, looking more lifelike. What’s more, the Liberace hologram will be able to actually “interact” with audience members.
Chairman of the Liberace Foundation Jonathan Warren told Forbes, those who attend the show will be able to “feel the warmth from his heart, the sparkle of his eye.”
A full show is in the works, with the Liberace Foundation having donated footage and artifacts for the program, reportedly with expectations of building a touring show.
