DIO Hologram Scheduled to Tour 100 Cities In 2019
The Dio hologram is not going anywhere. Wait, actually, it's going everywhere!
The hologram, created by Eyellusion, made its debut at Wacken 2016, to mixed reviews. But in the music industry, some big moves are being made. Billboard reports that the company is now being represented by Agency for the Performing Arts' Steve Martin (not the actor.)
Martin reps big name acts like Foo Fighters and Jack Black, and even Dio when he was alive, so expect some serious pushes for this hologram event.
A report from Billboard notes that there are at least 100 different cities that the hologram act plans to visit next year. Hologram tours for Frank Zappa and pianist Glenn Gould are also in the works.
"The big question when we first toured Dio through Europe was 'Is anyone actually going to show up?'" Eyellusion founder Jeff Pezzuti tells Billboard. "We sold out the last three shows in Europe and we did really, really well. We're such believers in what we were doing and we're all such massive fans — in my sixth grade class picture, I'm wearing a Dio shirt, so you can imagine taking this all the way across the finish line has been a dream come true."
