Since Tupac was resurrected at Coachella this past weekend, rumors of similarly popular deceased artists appearing in Hologram form have been reported. The most recent is the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
As the late music legend's brothers Jermaine, Jackie, Tito and Marlon have just recently announced, the remaining members of the Jackson 5 are joining forces for Unity Tour 2012.
The tour, a 27 city run, will be kicked off by a performance in Louisville, KY, on June 18.
The Unity Tour 2012 marks the first time the brothers have toured together since the Victory Tour in 1984.
Although the Michael Jackson hologram will probably not make it to the Unity Tour 2012, it could very well be a part of a bigger tour that the Jacksons are planning for next year, according to Eonline.
It could have Michael-absolutely, Jackie Jackson told Eonline. Wouldn't that be wonderful? As a matter of fact, we had that idea two years ago for Michael's Cirque du Soleil show, he added
As setlists for the Unity Tour 2012 are still in the works, the Jacksons are in the process figuring the best way to please the fans.
There are so many songs, Jackie said. That's the hardest part because we want to include all the favorites and not leave anything out.
And while fans would love nothing more than to see a Michael Jackson hologram rise up from the stage, fans will most likely have to settle for a couple of his songs -- for now.
We're going to sing some of Michael's stuff, too. We're going to honor him on the stage. He'd want us to do our thing to the best of our ability, Jackie added.
The Jacksons first achieved international stardom with their late brother, Michael, as the Jackson 5. They then became the first group to have their first four singles hit number one on Billboard.
The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and hopes set another milestone with their Unity Tour 2012.
