Soon it will be rare to go to a show and see a living performer, as two new holographic rock resurrections are planned - next up, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison.

Following Dr Dre's Tupac hologram at this year's Coachella Festival, it was recently revealed that the creators of the hologram would next be working on an Elvis recreation. Now, the manager of Jim Morrison's estate has spoken of his plans to bring The Doors frontman back to the stage.

"Hopefully, 'Jim Morrison' will be able to walk right up to you, look you in the eye, sing right at you and then turn around and walk away," said Jeff Jampol in an interview with Billboard magazine.

Meanwhile Jane Hendrix (sister of the rock legend), has revealed more tentative plans for a revival for brother Jimi.

"For us, of course, it’s about keeping Jimi authentically correct," she said. "There are no absolutes at this point."

Cypress Hill recently shared their doubts on Dr Dre's Tupac hologram, saying that they found the stage resurrection odd as the pair were not friends at the time of Tupac's death.
