Michael Jackson Hologram to Go on World Tour?

It could be on a two-year tour...
Michael Jackson may be dead, but that's not stopping him from touring to support his new album. Contact Music reports that producers behind Michael Jackson's holographic appearance at the Billboard Music Awards have dollar signs in their eyes and want to take their new technology on a Jackson-pimping world tour.
The site relays a report from the Daily Star, which quotes a source as saying, "It's only a matter of time before a hologram like this goes on tour. Public appetite for Michael Jackson's music has never been greater and this is a unique way of experiencing his magic."
The performance at the music awards was to promote Jackson's new posthumous album Xscape, which released last week. The performance was reportedly a four-month process and of course that makes it costly and saw holo-Michael perform "Slave to the Rhythm."
Of course, this is the Daily Star so the veracity of the story could well be in question. No comment from the Jackson Estate or anyone else yet.
