I saw (and 'conversed' on a limited basis due to AI) a John Glenn hologram at a NASA museum in Parma, Ohio a long time ago. It cost me nothing. Now we have Michael Jackson, Roy Orbison, Whitney Houston, and soon to be Amy Winehouse, George Clinton and William Shatner in holograms too.

Having a degree in Computer Science, I know the limits of these apparitions and what they can and can't do.

I have not and will not EVER pay to see any 'concert' with a bunch of holograms. They are all based on past shows. If it's not real, NO DEAL.

That means since I'm too young to ever have seen ABBA, I ain't going to pay to see a phony prerecorded show of them. Their recent reunion CD is pretty good and as far as I'm concerned, that's it for ABBA. It's their 'Waterloo'.

You'd need to be a real fan to leave home and fork out a good sum of money to look at avatars.

FANATIC. When this hologram show debuted in Stockholm last December, it was a sold out 'show' and one fan climbed up the stadium to see the spectacle and fell to his death. That's SAD.

The interior CD artwork shows the holograms of the four ABBA members, they're well done - make no mistake. Still, if it isn't in the flesh then forget it. I don't/won't/never will pay to see ghosts from a machine.

Not real, no deal.
