A new museum in London is ushering in a new age of fan-artist interaction.
The Music Hall of Fame, as it has been named, is set to spotlight great artists using interactive holograms of iconic musicians, NME reports.
Among the rockers getting the hologram treatment are Jimi Hendrix, Freddie Mercury of Queen, John Lennon and Morrissey.
According to NME, visitors "will be able to interact with the holograms, 'performing' with the stars." After that, they can buy a DVD copy of the performance as a memento.
The use of holograms has become a relatively common practice in the music world, rising to prominence with the digital representation of Tupac Shakur performing at a concert with Eminem in 2012.
A hologram of Michael Jackson has also been featured in “Michael Jackson ONE,” a Las Vegas co-production between Jackson’s estate and Cirque du Soleil.
The Music Hall of Fame museum is scheduled to open in next year in Camden, London.
