Back in 2008, the popular group System of a Down was looking for a serious way to limit impacts on the planet via touring.

“‘I’ve had an idea for a long time, which might sound a little crazy, but I really want to look into holographic touring,’ said frontman Serj Tankian . “I think we could reduce our need to travel if we could project ourselves into meetings and concerts. We have the technology, and we’re not using it right now. It would open up a whole new world for touring — shows wouldn’t have to be limited to bars or clubs. There would be no travel costs, so bands with very little money could play shows, and tickets would cost less.”

Well Serj, feast your eyes on the sold-out concerts currently playing in Japan with the holographic idol Hatsune Miku. Thousands of people have been attending the gigs — and the quality on stage is really, really impressive. Creepy impressive. Granted, it’s an animation up there and not some person (ala Al Gore or Prince Charles) but it’s not hard to imagine that we’re 10-15 years away from true holographic music concerts that are fairly close to the real thing.
