We Called It!: Michael Jackson’s Hologram May Tour with Jackson 5

I hope you all listen to the podcast, because we totally, totally called this one. Less than a week ago, too. Pat us on the back, damn it.

After Tupac set Coachella on fire post-mortem as a hologram, started rumours about a tour and thrilled his mother, the ghostly rapper looks like he’s about to set a trend for bringing musicians back from the dead. When asked, Michael Jackson’s brother Jackie recently told The Sun (gag) that the hologram “could have been Michael — absolutely. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?”

“A source” also told The Sun (gag) that a tour would be “the most lucrative of all time”, adding “As always with Michael’s estate and creating new art with his image, there will be a lot of politics to navigate. But we’ve all seen how well it can be done now”.

Jackie also mentioned that “As a matter of fact, we had that idea two years ago for Michael’s Cirque du Soleil show”. Regardless of whatever legal issues may have to be resolved, it certainly seems like Jackie is open to the idea.
