Kasabian - Kasabian Stars Slam Michael Jackson Hologram Tour Plans

Subscribe to Kasabian alerts

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."

I hate to enlighten him but Michael Jackson is far from the only Hologram that will be making a comeback! Just watch, John Lennon, Elvis, Freddy Mercury, and any other BIG NAME that was considered to be the greatest at what they did, will return and still make better ratings than all of these so called entertainers of today, INCLUDING HIM! I think that is the main reason some of them have problems with this, because when someone like Michael Jackson is brought back, who had million of fans, they still top the living artist!! They had an issue at first when they said XSCAPE was coming out, some were outraged including Jermaine and Quincy, now the hologram is driving some of them crazy and is getting the goat of others, yet the fans can't get enough. We all know it all comes down to ratings and money, but seeing that hologram brought back something even if for a little while to Michael Jackson's fans that none of them can or ever will understand!
