Fresh off the Tupac (WESTSIIIIIIIIDE) hologram the former assistants to the managers of the manager to The Smiths bus driver has announced that The Smiths are reforming. As holograms. I know, the thought is terrifying.
The Smiths are not touring, of course. Morrissey has far too much
pride money. Lets talk about Holograms touring though! At first I like the idea of holograms because that puts us steps closer to making the holodeck from Star Trek, but now that I’ve seen something like this I’m not so sure this is a good idea. Some “marketing” or “pr-manager” would take this and find some way to make this profitable and exciting to fans. Are we at a point that this idea, which I’m sure sounds great to people who want to make tons of money off the emotional ties to bands from the past, can actually happen? I can just see the headlines.

Capitalism is great, but we shouldn’t explore everything just because it makes money. Let sleeping dogs lay. Or just let a dude who
is not dead is dead stay dead.
