Patsy Cline Returning to the Stage as a Hologram in 2016

MCA Nashville

Patsy Cline will be the star of a new concert, thanks to a deal between the late singer’s estate and Hologram USA. The company has announced plans to turn Patsy into a hologram, making her the first country artist and first female act to get the virtual reality treatment.

Cline died in a plane crash in 1963 and was the first woman inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Patsy’s widower, Charles Dick, says in a statement, “We are very glad to share Patsy and her music with this new technology and format and honored by Hologram USA’s choice to have her as the first. I am sure her fans, old and new, will be thrilled.”

The Patsy Cline hologram show will debut next year featuring a full concert performance along with commentary and audience interaction. Hologram USA has also licensed the rights to turn late music legends Ray Charles, Buddy Holly and Liberace into holograms.
