Kasabian rockers Tom Meighan and Serge Pizzorno have blasted plans to take a hologram of Michael Jackson on the road, insisting the project is "disgusting".

Holographic technology was used to resurrect the image of the late King of Pop at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards earlier this month (May14), and stunned fans watched as the Thriller hitmaker appeared to perform new track Slave to the Rhythm.

It has since been suggested the pop star's digital doppelganger could be taken on tour, but Jackson devotees Meighan and Pizzorno have branded the plans "ridiculous".

Meighan tells Britain's Daily Star newspaper, "You've gotta be mental, mate. It's ridiculous."

Pizzorno adds, "It's disgusting. They could bring John Lennon back next week. He's dead."
