0515_ol_dirty_bastard_eazy_e_gettyEazy-E and Ol' Dirty Bastard are gearing up for their first performances since their deaths ... AS HOLOGRAMS ... and it's all going down in just a few months.

Promoters for the annual "Rock the Bells" hip hop festival have announced a "virtual" Eazy and a "virtual" ODB will perform on stage (a la Tupac) during shows in September and October.

According to AllHipHop.com ... hologram Eazy will perform with a living, breathing Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and O.D.B. will perform with members of the Wu Tang Clan.

Family members have reportedly signed off for both holograms.

Of course, hologram Tupac performed at Coachella last year ... and the fans LOVED IT.

Do either of their families get any of the ticket sales for using their likeness? I bet not.

Must be a slow news day. What's this got to do with Lindsey and her Aderall crises?

NWA reunion would have been a much better use of the hologram.

Dang, just when you're relieved some thug is not of this earth anymore to set a bad example, some gangsta figures out a way to perpetuate the myth that these a$$hats were actual musicians....

Not to be a party pooper or anything but they weren't exactly the pillars of our community. Atleast Pac was a genius... why not go with Biggie instead? I mean c'mone? Big Pun would go off huge with the latinos and blacks. Imagine both of they big asses (Pun and BIG) rocking the stage together... it would be insane. Stupid decision, they really dropped the ball on this one.

I can't stand when people talk about the Tupac hologram because ITS NOT A HOLOGRAM!!!! its an optical illusion using glass called Pepper's Ghost. The technique has been around since 1860.... HOLOGRAMS are impossible to create and calling it a hollogram is just wrong. Stupid people see the Tupac thing and think its something like the holograms from star wars in when reality its closer to projecting an image onto a bed sheet...idiots...

This shouldn't be just a hip-hop thing. A lot of deceased entertainers could be remembered on stage as a duet hologram in all forms of music.
