Liberace is set to make a comeback in Las Vegas as a hologram in a new live show nearly 30 years after his death.

The late pianist is set to come back to life in light form as part of a feature-length show in Sin City.

Bosses at start-up company Hologram Usa have partnered with officials at the Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts to create a show in which the digital entertainer would be able to interact with the audience.

Hologram Usa CEO Alki David says in a statement, "This is a major step in the evolution of this medium for entertainment. With our partners at the Liberace Foundation we’ll be able to stage a show so lifelike - the room will be filled with all of the great singer’s charm and charisma."

Hologram Usa is the company responsible for comedian Jimmy Kimmel's recent virtual appearance at the CMA Awards in Nashville, while he was filming his talk show studio in Los Angeles.

Liberace died in 1987 from AIDS-related pneumonia at the age of 67.
