Last Wednesday marked the 10 year anniversary of the death of TLC's Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes. TMZ is now reporting that her former band mates are planning a special tribute of their own.
Following a well-received performance of an eerily realistic digital Tupac created via CGI at Coachella music festival, the group's rep says TLC is currently in the planning stages of a 2012 reunion tour in the states that digitally incorporates deceased member 'Left Eye' into the show. A tour including 'Left Eye' is just one example of the new trend of deceased artists coming back to perform virtually. Other artists who have been rumored to make a hologram comeback are Notorious B.I.G and Michael Jackson.
It's not clear whether TLC plans on using the same technology that was employed to bring a 2-D CGI version (often described as a 'hologram') of Tupac Shakur to life at Coachella, or if the group will rely on archival footage of Lopes. Either way, this latest reunion only adds to the idea that, thanks to technological advances, deceased artists could be digitally 'rising from the dead' to grace a stage near you. Creepy or cool?
