Michael Jackson hologram to tour the world?

Michael Jackson is set to tour the world again - as a hologram.

The late King of Pop, who was resurrected onstage at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night (18.05.14) thanks to advanced technology, could wow fans across the globe again five years after his death.

The producers behind the special effects extravaganza want to take their show on the road for a two-year tour and are predicted to make half a billion dollars.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ''It's only a matter of time before a hologram like this goes on tour. Public appetite for Michael Jackson's music has never been greater and this is a unique way of experiencing his magic.''

The hologram performance at the Billboard Music Awards follows the success of a new posthumous Michael Jackson album, 'Xscape', which recently topped the charts in the UK.

John Branca, the executor of the singer's estate, added: ''It's so important to experience Michael Jackson in a live setting. We wanted a live performance in front of a live audience.''

It took four months to put together the lavish special effects show, which saw Michael's hologram gyrate and moonwalk on stage to new song 'Slave to the Rhythm'.

The late singer's choreographers, Rich and Tone Talauega, were behind the dance moves.

Why not? People were so hurt and upset to hear that Michael had died and some people still feel the hurt so, if Michael can appear for us where we can still see him the way we all want to remember him, then I think this is a great idea! For those who say it is creepy or freaky then that's your issue. If Tupac, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and other deceased celebrities in TV and in the movies didn't freak you out, then what's your problem with Michael Jackson. Who better to bring back than someone who was the greatest in the world at his craft and to whom entertain us for 40 years! RIP, MJ and just know this YOU ARE STILL MAKING US HAPPY AND I KNOW THAT IS ALL YOU EVER WANTED FOR YOUR FANS!!

I knew it....I just knew it!! Anything to make money off of Michael's name and talent. I saw the hologram performance and I WAS impressed, but it was sad at the same time that it wasn't really him! I just wonder what his poor mother thought, it had to have been hard on her and his kids!!

"It's only a matter of time before a hologram like this goes on tour," an insider told the Daily Star. "Public appetite for Michael Jackson's music has never been greater and this is a unique way of experiencing his magic." an anonymous insider is not any confirmation this is going on a world tour. and there is no quote or statement of any kind from the producers saying they plan to do this.
