You’re either going to love or hate this latest development in entertainment. On June 7, Ronnie James Dio came back from the dead in the form of a hologram, performing his greatest hits. You either see this as a loving tribute to a great rock and roller or a crass attempt to squeeze every last dime out of his legacy before all his fans die off.
Eyellusion created the Dio hologram with the help of Dio’s widow Wendy Dio. CEO Jeff Pezzuti justifies the effort thusly:
Ronnie James Dio was not only known for his amazing vocals, but also his incredible stage shows and performances. This show is a must-see for all fans of Ronnie, new and old. The new stage production we have created, plus the brand new Ronnie James Dio hologram, have to be seen to be believed. This is a first-of-its kind metal show! We are celebrating Ronnie, with his live vocals, with his band he toured with for the last 17 years, and with a show that his fans will love! It’s an over-the-top metal experience that will have the fans raising their horns throughout the show! We are excited for everyone to see what we have in store for the U.S. and the world to follow!

This begs the question, if you think this is a good idea, who would you like to resurrect and see perform again at the Keswick?
