More than 25 years after his death, it looks as if Liberace is headed back out on tour thanks to some technological help.
The legendary performer is set to make his return to the stage sometime this year as a sort of “hologram”, with his unveiling taking place in Las Vegas, where he made a name for himself as a showman.
Many will use the word hologram, but that technically isn’t correct. While it will look like a hologram up on stage, the technology is actually a signature kind of illusion, created by a mixture of software, new projection techniques, and optical trickery aided by what’s called Pepper’s Ghost.
While this new venture may put off quite a few people—including some of his biggest fans—the Liberace Foundation is behind the venture entirely, even supplying Hologram USA with footage and artifacts for the program.
Apparently, the “hologram” won’t just be a typical projection, but one that will actually be able to “interact” with audience members. In fact, Jonathan Warren, the chairman of the Liberace Foundation, said in a release that those who attend the show will be able to “ feel the warmth from his heart, the sparkle of his eye”.
The two partners are working on a full show, not just a short cameo during some other performance. While full details aren’t yet available, such as when this will begin, what songs he will perform, or even what else will be happening during the show (can a video projection really command a stage for any length of time?), the companies creating the experience are looking to take the show on the road, starting in Sin City and traveling around the world after that.
Last year at the Billboard Music Awards, a hologram Michael Jackson appeared on stage and performed.What really set that show apart from other examples is that Jackson performed a previously-unreleased track that was featured on his posthumous Xscapealbum called “Slave To The Rhythm”.

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not- 2 Peter 2:2-3 (KJV).
