Jacksons moot virtual Michael

Late Thriller singer might have a holographic counterpart...
Michael Jackson (the real one, not a hologram!)
The Jacksons have apparently been mooting the possible appearance of a virtual Michael, according to the Sun newspaper.

The late singer might be seen in the form of a hologram if the re-appearance goes ahead.

The Jackson Five were made famous by such hits as ABC and I Want You Back, which featured Michael as lead singer. He, of course, also had a stratospheric solo career singing the likes of Thriller and Bad.

Talking to the Sun, Jackie Jackson, Michael's brother, has said that a Cirque du Soleil show themed around the star was when the concept of a virtual version first came up as an idea.

More recently, according to the paper, he came across a similar hologram in the form of rapper TuPac Shakur, which apparently prompted the following reaction from Jackie: "It could have been Michael — absolutely. Wouldn't that be wonderful?"

The Jacksons are set to tour, which is where the virtual Michael would be implemented.
